This morning at 6:30am sharp 2 charter buses, 3 fifteen passenger vans and one food truck (driven by our cook, Pat O’Reilly) left IBC for Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Our purpose? Beach Camp 2011!
For some reason God seems to work in special ways at camp. A good friend of mine once said that camp is “life the way God intended”. It has consistent time alone with Him, time in community, fun, worship and great teaching. (and again this year, Bob Downy’s Brisket)
This year we’re focusing on the idea of “mission”. We hope students will understand that mission isn’t simply something you do, it’s more who you are. It’s about loving, serving and bringing the presence of Christ to whomever God puts you in your path. Whether it’s Honduras, downtown Dallas or your Algebra 2 class, people need to experience the love and grace of Jesus.
Please be in prayer for us. Our hope is that students experience deep and authentic change that will also impact our area campuses.
And really, we need prayer.
