It always happens. Summer comes and goes and you wonder where it went. I can be guilty of moving so fast I forget to push the pause button and think about all God is doing, that’s certainly the case for our middle school and high school beach camps.
This year was a little different for me. I was at the beach camps in a support/oversight role and less of a hands on role. Being in that role allowed me to see from a different perspective.
Here are 3 quick (well, maybe not so quick) observations from our middle school and high school camps.
First of all, our student ministry staff is passionate for Jesus and kids. Trey and Sasha (our middle school and high school pastors) both exhibited a huge heart for students as they led throughout the week. Their ability to discern how God is moving and lead effectively was amazing. I can’t say enough about Mary Ann (our amazing admin). She stayed the whole week and served well to make sure everything ran smoothly. God has blessed IBC with a gifted staff and interns who long to see God change students from the inside out. Our team isn’t satisfied with behavior modification, they long to see life transformation that only comes through the supernatural work of the gospel.
