It has been too long since we have seen many of you due to COVID. We are creating a plan to get you back to camp. We are currently in the process of planning a fall youth retreat. While it will be different, you can be sure that our desire hasn’t changed – to see you grow in your relationship with God and others.
Because we will have limitations on the number that we can have at camp (how many will be communicated soon), we are limiting the attendance onsite to those in grades 9-12.
We enjoy so much having youth at camp and spending time getting to know you better. This retreat is a great opportunity to go back to camp during the school year and deepen your relationship with the Lord, as well as reconnect with friends.
** Retreat starts Friday evening at 6:30 pm and ends after lunch on Sunday **
Returning for a second year, our keynote speaker is TBC
The cost is $128 for the entire weekend.

Registration will open soon! Stay tuned for more details.
Speaker – Steve Decker
Bio – Steve Decker
After completing a year at Emmaus Bible College Steve Decker earned a degree from Tennessee Technological University in music education. Later he completed a Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Before attending Dallas Seminary, he taught drama, choir and band in Shelbyville Central High School.
After completing seminary training he served as Bible teacher for over 20 years in an assembly in Fort Worth, Texas and Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Currently, he is serving as a faculty member at Middle Tennessee State University teaching public speaking and the art of ethical persuasion.
Students who claimed to have given up their faith after attending the university prompted him to find ways to strengthen young people in their faith and equip them with solid evidence for the truth claims of Christianity. After going through the certification process of Dr. William Lane Craig’s Reasonable Faith organization, he became a chapter director and holds a monthly meeting in his home where the group studies apologetics seeking to equip believers with the tools necessary to boldly defend their faith. He has developed a defenders training course and currently teaches that course in different churches interested in strengthening and encouraging God’s people in the faith.
His mission is to empower believers to become God strong warriors who can defend and share the good news of the gospel and then in turn empower others to do the same.
Psalm 71:18 English Standard Version (ESV)
18 So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me,
until I proclaim your might to another generation,
your power to all those to come.
He has a lovely wife of 49 years, two marvelous children and 5 spectacular grandchildren and 1 great grandchild on the way.
