  • Can we talk candidly for a moment? I am taking a bit of a risk. I am hurling myself at a bit of a “sacred cow” in churchdom, especially among those called to places of influence and authority in the Body of Christ. So here it

  • Yesterday the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris caught on fire. The structure, over 800 years old, was engulfed in flames. Meaningful relics, beautiful art, historic documents, and walls that have reverberated the expressions of hundreds of

  • Can we talk for a minute? Like really talk? I want to go on record… I love the church. I love the local church. I love the church abroad. I love the rural church. I love the metropolitan church. I love the small church. I love the

  • In general, I’m not a risk taker. I was a first born child, reared to be cautious and ever cognizant of danger. I don’t necessarily have a fear of heights. I’m not claustrophobic. I’m not whatever you call it if you are

  • Each generation has likely shared similar thoughts through the ages. In every generation there is some variation of an effort to captivate the hearts and minds of children. Our time, this moment is no different. As the sensory bombardment of the

  • I love beginnings. Most of us love a good beginning, even if it is humble and requires a little hard work. Unlike a good percentage of the population, I also have an unusual affection for endings. Through the years we have said

  • Vision for the future should never distract us from the present. Being a “visionary” is nothing more than vain imagination if it disables us from being fully present in the moment.

  • For the last 8 summers we have had the privilege of leading youth and kids camps. In the 3rd summer our culture shifted and each summer since has been a deepening of what the Lord initiated. You choose your preferred term...revival, awakening, renewal, refreshing, glory, presence, kingdom...all I know is that HE came near and that same favor rests on us all these years later.
.
It is a humbling honor to be present in the room as Jesus comes and does miracles and changes live. I will go down fighting to make sure this never becomes common or old to my heart.
.
Along the way, a family is formed and ever evolving. So many of the leaders present this summer, have been present many summers. We are all a part of something special...this little movement of our...this movement of His.
.
Within that family is a subset...a sect...a remnant....
.
Every summer 15-20 young adults join us, toeing the front lines, serving on the back lines, expending themselves fully in both natural and spiritual ways.
.
We call them "interns", though that may be the most banal, elementary explanation of who they are and how precious they are to this movement. I am absolutely convinced, much of our present culture in TYM is directly linked to the blood, sweat, and tears and these young men and women who have served through the years.
.
None of them have met the mark of perfection. As with anyone else, flaws are present. They are evolving in emotional, mental and spiritual maturity. Some return while others move on. Some faces become very familiar with each passing year in front of the blue line, while others serve one summer and transition in life.
.
Regardless, their impact, their presence, their oil...the residual of their time at Camp Jackson remains. Their camp experience is different...it's an experience the is both humbling and confidence building...it is grueling yet glorious...it is confronting and comforting...and it's one that can never be taken from them.
.
