    "At NYC, after one of the services, Royal Company was playing the response songs as usual. The stadium was dark and all you could hear was the sound of thousands of people singing their hearts out to God. I just closed my eyes and everything lit up. It was bright white and the stadium of kids turned into rows of angels, pouring their hearts out. It was heaven and it was beautiful. I didn’t know what to do but weep. I opened my mouth and the lyrics poured out at the top of my lungs, but I didn’t even feel like I was singing. I knew God was trying to get my attention that night. Through the rest of the services, I heard him loud and clear in each and every one. He pulled me out of a deep, dark hole and I haven’t felt this happy in a long time."

    "The biggest thing I got out of camp is the realization that even with all the rejection, God is on my side."

    "Through my life, I’ve never really known how to share the story of Jesus. I’ve seen a different perspective of sharing the word of Christ. I know that teaching people about Jesus isn’t something that can be taught overnight or even in a week. It takes time for someone to learn to love someone new or even love someone they used to know. I’m so thankful for this new view on how to share my faith. And I’ll be looking for ways to use my knowledge when sharing Jesus with the people in my life. 2019 Teen Camp was a blast!"


  • "I felt I was called to youth ministry and my self-worth as a whole was uplifted by everyone."

    "This week has been a tough week for me. I came to camp with a lot on my heart and I’m going back with a lot. But this week, I thought that even though I’ve messed up and done things I know I shouldn’t have done, He still loves me and still wants me. There isn’t a more wonderful feeling than that. It gives me hope that if these things were placed on my heart that he’s going to be there to support me and help me to make the right decisions and give me the right words to say to the people around me."

    "The biggest impact I had from this camp was how everyone was nice to everyone especially the ones with disabilities or low self-esteem. Where I live, people are rude and judge disabled people. They make their lives miserable. I know I'm polite to everyone, but sometimes I just stay out of people’s business. So I’m going to start more conversations with people who look upset."
