Student Ministry SUMMER Camp 2017

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold: the new has come. - 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)
Join us in Summer 2017 as together we explore how the Gospel transforms, revolutionizes, and fundamentally changes everything. We’re expectant. We’re full of hope. Because we know nothing can be the same when we encounter Jesus

Student Ministry CAMPS are among one of the best ways to dive into the Word of God, hangout with some of the best students around, and have an encounter with the One True God. This year, both our Middle School and High School ministries are combining to join YM360 for GENERATE CAMP at Lee University in Cleveland, TN,  May 29-June 2. This year's theme is THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING based on 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Early registration opens February 5. Click the button below to register.

 Speaker 

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

 

WORSHIP LEADER

Widely known for their pure heart in leading worship, Rush of Fools has become a favorite in the realm of Christian music. Rush of Fools originated out of Birmingham, Alabama and burst onto the scene of Christian radio when their song "Undo" became the most played in 2007. Currently, Rush of Fools travels the world leading worship in a variety of scenes, and we at YM360 are privileged to call them friends.
