God is the great redefiner. At the heart of what it means to know and experience God is the process of redefinition. God defines what it means to be new. God spoke a new creation into existence out of nothing, redefining our existence.  Through the person and work of Christ, God made complete renewal possible for all who would come to faith in Him, redefining our reality. In the salvation offered by God, we discover a new identity, redefining who we are. And in discovering who God meant for us to always be, our purpose is redefined.

Worship and Teaching

Camp Pastor – Jason Cook

Jason Cook is deeply committed to faithful biblical preaching and that becomes obvious from anyone who sits under his leadership. He is a dynamic communicator obviously gifted by God to be able to minister to a wide range of people. Jason gives leadership to a church called Fellowship Memphis and travels the country sharing the incredible message of reconciliation that Jesus offers those who repent and believe.

He was born and raised in Birmingham, AL in a home that feared God. At the age of 8, he walked down an aisle, as he wanted to avoid hell. After a successful high school football career, he graduated from high school in Northeast Atlanta and accepted a football scholarship to Ole Miss. It was at Ole Miss that he came into a true knowledge of Jesus and began the wonderfully arduous adventure of following Him. He was a standout at The University of Mississippi and was a member of the Baltimore Ravens Football Club during the pre-season of 2009. He ultimately walked away from the game of football to pursue the call to evangelism. He and his wife Courtney live in Memphis, TN with their growing family.

Worship Band – ISSAC

Although Isaac Pittman has a voice that makes music sound easy on the ears, his life hasn’t always been a lullaby. At the tender age of six years old, he lost his biggest fan when his mother passed away. Shortly after, the music he loved as a child suddenly came to an end. It was then he realized music was God’s calling for his life and he believed in sharing the legacy of his family with this newly ignited passion he held inside. From that point on he dedicated his life to sharing his voice with the world.

ISAAC has had the privilege of sharing the stage with other artists like Brandon Heath, Jars of Clay, Bethany Dillon and Shane and Shane. Currently, ISAAC travels the nation leading worship at a variety of gatherings.

Where will we serve?

Students will serve with our North American Mission Board church planting partners in neighborhoods within driving distance from Wheaton. Students will serve in a variety of ways; from backyard bible clubs, to light construction, to neighborhood mapping. Everything they do will serve to see the Gospel proclaimed and the mission of the church strengthened.  Lunch will be served on site.

Is there a dress code?

Of course. We ask for there to only be one piece bathing suits at camp, or a dark colored t-shirt over a two piece. Avoid short shorts (including guys showing off the bro thighs), spaghetti strap shirts, or really anything that will be a distraction to those around you. We honor God with how we dress. Be cool, but don’t be a fool! If needed, help a brother or sister out.
