Camp

WHY CAMP?

At GBC we have amazing kids and student teams that put on awesome events throughout the entire year. However, the biggest and best thing that we do every year is summer camp. Last year alone we took 130 students to camp. We cannot retell all of the countless stories of life-change that happened while there. Our kids come home transformed every year. We believe in camp because camp makes an impact.

Parents, without a doubt, the most important thing you can do for your kid is make an investment in their spiritual future. We believe that camp is that opportunity. Camp is where the things you have been telling them about God for years finally click. Camp is where our students find God. Camp is where lives are changed.

Theme: Forsaken

Too often we find our identity and worth in things other than the Lord. We choose not to obey or to fear the Lord but rather to serve whatever satisfies our desires. This summer we will examine the life of King Saul. Although, he was a man anointed by God, he chose to fear people and serve himself. Do our lives mimic his tragic downfall or will we reverently fear the Lord and desire to serve Him faithfully day in and day out?

This summer, our desire is for students to walk away from this week, desiring to fear the Lord and to serve Him faithfully with their lives.

SPIRIT DAY THEME

Theme Verse
1 SAMUEL 12:24

“Only fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.” (NIV)

Speaker - Brian Holland

Brian

Brian Holland has been in ministry for 19 years in Southern California, serving high school students.   In the last year, he transitioned into the Lead Pastor for FLOOD Next Generation Ministry and College/Young Adults Pastor at Pomona First Baptist Church. He is an outstanding speaker; he’s captivating, funny, but most importantly passionate to see people come to know Jesus. He is asked to speak at many camps, chapels, and special events throughout the year.  He has a wife (he definitely married up), Kelley, who loves Jesus and two adorable boys, Tyler (7) and Dylan (5).  Brian’s purpose for ministry is to exalt Jesus as the greatest – one life at a time.
