Summer Camp Theme Description:
The Christian life is simple. It’s hard, but not complex. Christians follow Jesus. Our single responsibility includes watching and learning from Jesus, loving and worshipping Him, then submitting to and obeying everything He’s commanded.
Many times, however, Jesus is not the center of our life but a tangent. We confuse our weekly church attendance with having a good relationship with Him. Ironically, many good things intended to help us follow Christ can potentially distract us from Him. When we miss the heart of the Christian life – growing in our relationship with Him – we miss the fact that part of that growing his sharing our life in Him with others.
We’re to work on His behalf, under His authority, and for His kingdom. And what has He commanded us to do? Make Disciples! Though difficult our assignment is clear! Making a disciple involves teaching, modeling, steering, leading, escorting, and guiding. It requires time, energy, and commitment.
Making disciples means following Jesus by helping others follow Jesus. So where do we start and where do we go? In order to follow Jesus more closely we have to know what it takes to truly Make Disciples.
This is what we hope to accomplish at Summer Camp 2012-The Call!
