I recently had the privilege of being a speaker at Pennsylvania Youth Camp. It was such an honor to speak at this camp that has played such a major part in developing who I am as a Christian and as a man. I was also so honored to share the pulpit with three men who have played significant roles in shaping who I am today – Gary Horton, Mark Niemann, and Drue Freeman.
The camp theme this year was “The Love of Christ,” and though it was one of our smallest camps, many of us felt it was also one of the best years (despite the absence of several, such as Pete Stadler and Gene Cunningham, who have always been a huge part of camp)! Friendships were made (and deepened), kids were introduced to Christ, competitions were intense, and the Lord was worshiped and glorified through song and through the study of His Word.
I’ve posted a portion of my first session here on Spreaker, so if you would like, you can listen to this message in which I touch on such topics as the confusion of the crucifixion, the priestly work of Christ, the dangers of both emotionalism and intellectualism, and what it means to be a disciple of Christ!
