Prayerful – The best way to prepare for your mission project is through prayer. Remember, your ministry at the site consists not only of the work you do, but also your interactions with your contact and the way you represent the Church as a whole to the community you serve.

Servant-minded – Come prepared to do everything they ask with excellence. As the leader, you set the tone for your group.

Flexible – Student Life does everything possible to prevent changes. However, plans do sometimes change.

This year's camp theme:
I AM (Exodus 3:14)
Student Life Camp 2018 will explore the characteristics of Yahweh, the one and only living God (Deuteronomy 6:4), as experienced by Moses in Exodus 3-4. Rather than reduce God to a single attribute like "love" or "judge," your students will encounter an Almighty creator God who is above us, with us in His Son Jesus (who declared His own divinity with the "I AM" statements recorded in John), and worthy of our trust because He will never change or fail. Unlike our current culture which suffers from intense "god" confusion, your students will have a clear picture of not only God's character, but also how He relates to His children. They will return home with a firm theological and relational foundation to form a God-centered worldview and decision-making process.
