Summer 2018 - Introducing New Speakers!
Did you know two new main chapel speakers will be joining us this summer? During week 4 (July 14-21), we are looking forward to hearing from Dr. Bryan Carter and Dr. Jeff Warren for the first time as they become a part of our CAMP-of-the-WOODS family.

Dr. Bryan Carter is the Senior Pastor of Concord Church in Dallas, TX, and regularly teaches at conferences, workshops, leadership events, and worship services throughout the country and internationally. Dr. Carter is a published author, serves as a co-presenter for 33: The Series and as a presenter for The Art of a Marriage . He holds both a Master of Arts in Christian Education with a specialization in Family Ministry from Dallas Theological Seminary and an honorary Doctorate of Divinity from Dallas Baptist University.

Dr. Jeff Warren has been the Senior Pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church since 2010. Dr. Warren received a Master's Degree in Theology and a Doctorate of Ministry from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where his doctoral work focused on Christian apologetics. He was named one of their best preachers and was recognized for his doctoral project, which became a six-session study for students in Christian apologetics. He describes his God-given mission as one who has been called to preach the Gospel to the Church, so that we might rescue one another from cultural Christianity, to follow Jesus every day. 

We are excited to welcome back Dr. Todd Williams, President of Cairn University, as our seminar speaker. Our Sports Emphasis will be basketball with Coaches Bay Forrest, Jon Baldwin, and Joe Odhiambo.

We are looking forward to another great season this summer. With Christ at the center of it all, it is a blessing to be able to watch the Lord at work through incredible times of teaching, activities, fun, and fellowship. Do you want to experience this?

LIFT Discipleship Update
On Sunday, our LIFT Discipleship students headed out on their missions trip to Ecuador. Working with Youth World - International Teams, 27 students and 6 leaders will be in Ecuador for a little over two weeks. The team will work with indigenous churches in two different villages in the Andes Mountains and team with other young leaders at El Refugio. They will finish their time in Ecuador mountaineering a peak over 16,000 feet high. Please keep the missions team in your prayers as they prepare for this incredible experience, and follow thei r missions blog for updates during the trip.

LIFT (Leaders in Further Training) is a unique discipleship and adventure program for young adults. This life changing experience is an incredible opportunity to cultivate core leadership skills, overcome physical and spiritual challenges, and discover unrealized potential with weekly training and wilderness adventures. LIFT graduates leave the program better equipped to face the challenges of the 21st century with a biblically grounded and culturally informed faith. Due to CAMP-of-the-WOODS' commitment to developing leaders, LIFT is offered at no cost to our students.

Become a part of our LIFT family! We are currently accepting applications for the 2018 Fall Semester, which runs from August 27 - December 14, 2018. Check out our  website  or  email us  for more information or learn how to  apply today .
