You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me. I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutherock near Boone, North Carolina. My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 700 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.
This is my first summer on staff! I am so excited to spend my summer in the midst of God's beautiful creation while being surrounded by a tight-knit family of faithful, supportive and love-filled staff. I look forward to learning and growing with them and our enthusiastic campers!
How have you seen God at work so far this summer? I have witnessed God at work through my campers this summer. It has been so inspiring to listen to their stories of faith and to observe them sharing God’s love through their participation, leadership, friendship and faithfulness at camp. I don’t think the campers realize that their counselors can learn just as much from them as they can from us!
How has this summer experience impacted your life? As I came to Lutherock this summer, I was searching for an opportunity to reconnect with God and to find renewal in my faith life. I think what has helped me to achieve these things the most this summer has been the experiences I’ve had with my campers. Witnessing their yearning and curiosity for God and listening to their stories of steadfast, childlike faith has helped me to grow in my own relationship with Him. I have absolutely loved every minute of this summer and it has set a new standard for the way I live my life. I hope to find the same sense of fulfillment in wherever life leads me next!
