This past week, our TKO (youth) students got to experience an exciting, fun-filled week of summer camp at home! Each day, most of the teens served at VBS, then in the afternoons they were treated to some off site activites such as Mid-South Ice House, Main Event, and indoor rock climbing. There were team challenges consisting of creative videos and different games, as well as fundraising for missions. One of the highlights of the week was definitely when the youth met the fundraising goal of $400 for Life Choices of Memphis, and got to see both JC and Brian dance in a pink tutu, as well watching JC, Zach Connelly, and Evan Davis have their heads shaved!
The evenings were full of spirit-filled worhsip and teaching from our good friend, Jeremiah Shipley from Whitten Baptist. His messages on holiness were impactful, and we ended a couple of the evenings with very moving prayer time. The teens and the leaders had such a great time, but more importantly, much was made of Jesus! We pray this week has a lasting impact, and that seeds were planted which will bear much fruit for the Kingdom.
