I attended teen camp for the first time when I was 17 years old. God changed my life by the decisions I made that week. I’ve benefited from that camp everyday since. I pray God will do the same for the teens at this camp. Please pray!

Summer is here! Christian Camps, Conferences, Revivals, and Trips are in full swing. For countless people, these activities have been a proven way to make great memories and life-changing decisions. Follow these simple tips for a great time you will remember for the rest of your life.
Bring a good time with you. “Bored” is a state of mind. You won’t have access to your usual distractions (TV, phone, game system, etc.). Plan to enjoy nature and the company of others at camp. (more…)
As our church was in the process of doing an audit of our Global Missions impact, I spent a year reading through scores of missionary and church planting letters sent to our church. Some of these letters were from missionaries we supported financially while some of them were from ministries we did not support.

Matthew 6:4 “That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.”

I love being a father. I never tire of hearing my children call me Dad. What a privilege that God shares this lofty title with earthly fathers! (more…)

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” ~ Revelation 19:6
Humanist philosophies, in various forms, teach that the universe exists in chaos without thought or intention. This lie causes many believe that life is a series of accidents and coincidences. Not so, my friend!
I take great comfort in knowing that my God is in full control. The Bible plainly teaches that God is (more…)
