Pursuit  March 17-19        Middle and High School 

Pursuit is all about Pursuing God’s best! Pursuing God’s best in relationships, personal life, social media, and more! Throughout Pursuit you will be able to customize your weekend, to meet your needs with the many different Breakout sessions and activities! Pursuit is founded in the Purity & Holiness material and based off of those same timeless principles.

So here is how Pursuit is going to work

  1. Pursuit is a conference like format.
  2. General sessions will have High School & Middle School together and will lay the foundation. 
  3. Breakout sessions consist of multiple options that the students can choose from and will allow the opportunity to go deeper in specific areas. (Students must attend every break out time)

Special guests


 General Session speaker  Thad Stout

 "Let me introduce myself. My name is Thaddeus Stout. I love God's Word and I love God's people. God has called me to passionately preach His Word. The most important ministry in my life is my family.  I am blessed with a terrific wife, Rachel, and three beautiful daughters. As a family we enjoy camping, skiing, bowling, softball, golf, and just spending time together. I love being a father; my home is a source of strength and solitude. I've served in churches as both youth and Senior pastor and have a master's degree in counseling and a Th.D (which is a doctorate of theology). You may remember me as the speaker for Juniors camp, (which I have done for 20 years)! Be sure that I will challenge you at a deeper level, but also just as you enjoyed chapel as a Junior, you will enjoy chapel this weekend." 





Worship led by Jennie Wellsland 

 Jennie's simple style will help bring you before the throne as she leads in song. Past campers have praised her, not only for her talent, but for sharing her heart and desire to help you come before Christ in song. 

Jennie has traveled extensively  encouraging people to worship and is teamed up with an organization called Fields of Dreams Uganda. Check out more at her website.
