2013 Youth Conference
Servants and Leaders: Finding Your Place in Life
Dear young friends: Each one of us is called in some measure to be servants and leaders in personal life, in school, in social situations, in relationships and family life, in the workplace, in the church, on social media, and in the public square. For some of you this will mean formal leadership and service roles in society, and for others it will relate to more informal leadership and service as you go about your daily lives. Serving and leading is difficult, especially for younger people because you live in a world of blurred roles, peer pressure and uncertain direction. How do you navigate through that world? Are you serving the world or Christ? Are you led by others or led by Christ? Do you lead others away from Christ or to Christ? Do you seek to serve Christ and others where God has placed you or do you only want to be served? What is your foundation for serving and leading? Who is your example and empowerment for serving and leading?
Camp will be held July 9-12 at Camp Michawana in Hastings, Michigan. All young people (grade 10-age 25) are invited to join us as we challenge ourselves to be leaders in whatever sphere God has placed us through service to others and Him.
WHAT TO BRING
All campers should bring a Bible, sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight, and bug repellent. You may wish to have an umbrella, fitted sheet, camera or additional reading material as well. A book table will also be set up, and campers may wish to bring money (U.S. funds) to purchase books, or for special activities.
Camp Michawana offers a wide variety of activities. At the lake, you may swim, fish, canoe, or kayak. The athletic field is perfect for soccer, football, or ultimate Frisbee. Volleyball courts are also available. Inside, ping-pong tables will be set up. Bring along whatever you might wish to use for these activities.
The conference rules are outlined on the back of the application form and you are asked to obey these guidelines out of love. They are intended to provide Christian direction to your behavior and its motives. If followed, they will enrich the camp environment and allow for the greatest possible growth among us. Thank you for your cooperation.
