June 1st through August 12th, 2023
The role of Courageous at Glory Ridge is to provide biblically sound, spiritual leadership & support to all the functions of the summer camp program. Being Jesus with skin-on, this is not just a spiritual role. I will also be involved hands-on in the daily work of campers and other staff.
The summer ministry focus is two-fold . One aspect is experienced in serving the local community. The second is the experience of worshiping God, in a more rustic, natural setting, absent of the distraction of communication devices.
For many young people, this is their first real experience with people living in poverty. In addition to seeing their living conditions, they discover the common dignity in humanness that we all share, no matter our financial condition. They also learn life skills that build confidence in their own creativity and resourcefulness. It's truly a life-changing week for these young people.
Each morning before leaving camp to serve the community, everyone circles-up for prayer and proclaims the phrase "make work worship". Throughout the day we are reminded that we are worshiping the living God in all that we do. Nightly services under the stars on the worship pavilion are a special time. We sing praises and share scripture to draw us into a more intimate walk with the Lord and with each other.
Be a part of what God is doing through Courageous at Glory Ridge, this summer. Many young lives will be impacted and many prayers for physical needs will be answered. Simply go to the donate section and select "donate now" .
What is the Grace Life?
The Grace Life is Christ's Life freely given to us by the miraculous exchange that occurred through His finished work on the cross. This biblical teaching along with a helpful visual presentation, clearly articulates what it means to be crucified, buried and raised with Christ as a new creation. (Galatians 2:20 & Romans 6:3-6) It also equips us to recognize and welcome Christ's intention to live His life through us on a daily, minute by minute basis.
Our time together: Saturday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
1. The Nature of the Flesh
Discover what lies you've believed about yourself and allowed to define you and your actions. Recognize how you've learned to live life, attempted to please God, and attempted to meet your own needs for love, acceptance, worth and security, in your own strength.
2. The Exchanged Life
As mentioned above, this teaching articulates how at salvation, we have become new creations and have a new source of life, which is Christ Himself. The Christian life isn't complicated, it's impossible, if we don't allow Christ to live His life through us. During our time together, you'll learn to recognize the fruit of His Spirit as evidence that you're trusting Him.
3. Journey to the Cross
Discover how God uses difficulty in the life of the believer to bring us to a place of surrender. Brokenness is the only path to seeing and knowing the wonder of who God really is. The Grace Life Conference equips us to recognize those times when He is lovingly showing us the weakness of our own strength, while inviting us to rely on Him. In doing so, we learn to welcome and cooperate with His plans.
4. The Believer's Identity in Christ
Who am I? That is the question that many people spend a life time attempting to answer. Without a biblical understanding of our identity, we may expend great effort to redefine who we think we are. Discover in this session, exactly who God says you are in Christ.
5. The Believers Victory
You've heard about spiritual warfare; in this session we will learn to recognize the lies and deception of the enemy that are personally tailored to work against us. Moreover, we'll discover how Jesus has already provided the "victory" for each of us and how to walk, daily, in that victory.
Conference Fee: No charge, but donations are gratefully accepted
