2018 PNW FCA Camp!
Pacific Northwest Regional Summer Sports Camp: STRONG 2018
At the end of June my wife, and 2 of my 3 kids and I traveled down to Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho for my 3rd time at Pacific Northwest FCA Summer Camp! Three hundred sixty middle school and high school campers, sixty college student huddle leaders, forty-five coaches, and twenty-five staff members gathered on the campus for an amazing time drawing closer to Jesus and growing in our sport!
Some amazing testimonies occurred at camp, dozens made first-time commitments to Christ, and a even greater amount rededicated their lives to Christ!
The amazing thing about camp is that it is not only for the campers, but the FCA Staff, Volunteers, Coaches, and College Students all learn and grow in Jesus!
The college students were equipped and empowered with training, biblical teaching, musical worship, and some fun competition for 3 days before the campers arrived, and stayed an extra day after camp ended to fellowship and recount what the Lord had done in and thru them that week. 12 of the college leaders were baptized as well!
