Dean: Ben Moore
Check-in: July 7 @ 6:00pm
Parent Pick-up: July 12 @ 3:00pm
At Base Camp, pre-teens risk and dare to go all-in with Jesus. We will take our campers through a foundational approach to faith that’s rooted in Jesus. As young people discover the joy of following Jesus faithfully, they will be prepared to maintain a balanced faith that lasts the trials of the teen years and for a lifetime.
We will cover some important subjects like…
- Connecting With Jesus
- Responding to His message of Love and Salvation
- Living As God’s Child
- Following Jesus Faithfully
- Maintaining a Balanced Faith
- Spiritual Disciplines like studying the Bible, worship, service and learning to tell their own Christian story.
All of this will be done in an environment of fun and excitement with Christian men and women pouring into their lives for the entire week, and building friendships that will last a lifetime.
About the Dean
Where are you involved at church?
My family and I have been attending Parkside Christian Church for the past month and really feel like it is a place we can worship and feel at home.
What is your favorite Bible verse?
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11.)
What does camp ministry mean to you?
Growing up my family went to camps as vacation every summer. I have incredible memories from camp with my parents, siblings, even extended family running camps for 4th-6th grade. I went to college to work in camping after spending a few summers volunteering and working as Summer staff. God called me into Youth Ministry for the last 11 years, but am excited to be in Full-Time Camp Ministry starting this year at Woodland Lakes Christian Camp.
What is your favorite camp memory?
Camp has been such an enormous part of my life that it is hard to pick just one, but my favorite part is the incredible relationships that I made while being a part of camp. I met my wife, Jocelyn, and our lifelong friends Andrew and Ginger Johnson while working Summer Staff. I also met men that continue to be mentors in ministry and life in general along with ministers that I have worked with for years that make up a big part of my support system.
What is your favorite dessert?
Anything not fruit flavored…Sugar Cream Pie, Chocolate Pie, Mint Oreo Ice Cream, Heath Bars…
