Year End NextGen Update

In Psalm 78, King David gives us a mandate to pass our faith unto the next generation. As Assemblies of God pastors and leaders we must pass on to our kids and youth a faith that is Gospel Centered, Spirit Empowered and Personally Responsible for the Mission of God.

I spent much of my summer at Church Camps. I ate lots of delicious food, attended numerous chapel services, slept in comfy bunk beds, played messy games and hung out with kids all day long. Some may ask, why would you spend your summer this way? My answer lies within the core purposes of our summer camps. We facilitate summer camps to provide an opportunity for our kids and youth to experience a first-hand encounter with God and His church through recreation, personal interaction, worship, Bible teaching, and response to God. It’s this final one, “response to God” that...
