Kids Camp Summer 2022

July 16-19 // Shocco Springs, Talladega, AL

Student Life For Kids summer camps help 3rd-5th graders establish a biblical foundation for their faith. This years theme is EPIC. At Student Life Kids Camp 2022, kids will look at God’s EPIC work in the life of Daniel and his friends. Just like Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, God invites us into this EPIC story through an EPIC rescue, giving us a chance to make EPIC choices and take EPIC stands with Him by our side.
 
“He rescues and delivers; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth, for He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions” DANIEL 6:27
 
We will be staying at Shocco Springs Conference Center, a modern wooded retreat that ensures an unforgettable week at camp. It boasts unique free time options including the Aqua Park, low ropes course, putt putt, paintball and paddle boats. Shocco Springs is a kid’s summer camp dream!
 
Camp Cost $149 (If paid now until March 27th. Price increases to $189 if paid after the 27th) 
(this is half the price due to Mr. Ben working his magic so don’t miss out!)
 
Deadline to register is May 1, 2022.

Brian and Melinda Carlisle
Pastor (and wife) of Faith Baptist Church,
Arlington, Tennessee
 
After spending nearly 15 years in the Commercial HVAC industry, God made it clear to Brian that He had different plans for him. Upon surrendering to ministry, Brian spent several years in Student Ministry before accepting the call to be the Lead Pastor of a Church Plant in Arlington Tennessee. For over 10 years, Faith Arlington has been an incredible Church Family ministering to one of the fastest growing suburbs of Memphis. Brian married his high school sweetheart, Melinda. They have 3 kids and 2 grandkids.

Brian and Melinda will be speaking on “Being Missional In Your Home” on Monday, February 7 at 6pm at the Couples’ Dinner.
 
 
Edwin Pacheco
NAMB Church Planter,
New York City, NY
 
In 2016, Edwin and his wife, Melinda, felt the call to transition to plant Redemption Church in one of NYC’s most challenging communities, Red Hook. Once considered to be the “Crack Capitol” of the US, Red Hook continues to experience the devastation of the 80’s & 90’s. With Crime, Drugs, Poverty, and Brokenness still a major factor in this community, Red Hook is also becoming a beacon of light. With over 30,000 people living in this 8-block radius of a community, it is seeing transformation take place. Some of that change is due to the impact Redemption Church has had on this community. With the Holistic approach to community renewal, Edwin and Redemption Church believes the best was to see lives, families, and a community to experience change is to provide real tangible holistic opportunities for change to occur. Edwin and Melinda are parents to Isabella (15yrs old) and Heather (10yrs old) who view their lives as platforms for God to see healthy, balanced, biblical character in young people. 
 
Edwin will be speaking at Tuesday’s lunch on February 8 at 11:30am as well as Wednesday’s worship service on February 9 at 6pm.
 
 
Todd Lafferty

IMB (International Mission Board)
 
Todd Lafferty was elected executive vice president of IMB in February 2019. He first served as a Journeyman in Scotland from 1983-1985.
