What We Did at Camp Week

Posted on: 
July 1, 2020

Camp Week, we say, is about three things:

  • Inspiration
  • Fellowship
  • Teaching

The inspiration and fellowship started Monday evening with a meal and campfire at the All-Nations base. Our members got a chance to see the new building just under roof. Because the building project is current, we moved to another facility for the next three days. However, the evening campfires continued—including an opportunity for our members to recite our vision, mission, and core values. The three who could give the additional supporting wording by memory won a bigger prize!

Community Development Day

Tuesday was the first time most of us got to hear Billy North, a brother from down south in Alabama. Billy and his family are passionate about "appropriate technology" and using it to help the poor in meaningful ways. Billy was full of stories from their travels around the world.

By the way, have you heard of their family's ministry, ADAPTech? You can learn about it here. (And don't miss the significance of their acronym WE FISHH. Billy took a session to talk about this.)

Bible Translation Day

Adam Boyd shared with us on Wednesday, with some interesting exercises to help us understand the importance of key terms in the Bible. Some of his talk was more technical too, as he talked about the translation process and how to work with a translation consultant.

Adam and his family serve the Enga people in Papua New Guinea, but are in the States now for a home assignment that got extended due to the coronavirus. He participated last year in our video project, "God's Word: Enduring Through the Ages."

Church Planting Day

Thursday's focus was church planting, and we enjoyed having some sending church partners with us. Ken Miller shared about the pilgrim church in the morning session. A highlight of the afternoon was a panel discussion about approaches to church planting.

We look forward to making these sessions available to you soon. Meanwhile, enjoy a few photos (below) of Camp Week 2020!
