How did your faith come alive? What was your turning point?
Life-changing events have the potential to turn a young person’s life towards or away from faith. According to the Hemorrhaging Faith report, 50% of committed Christian young adults who went to camp said their faith came alive there. When young people experience God’s love through his people and learn to love and serve others, their faith comes alive.
Take a look at Judy’s story. Summer camp was highly significant to Judy when she was a child. Along with growing in faith, she made lifelong friendships and developed skills that would later shape her vocation as a teacher and high school principal.
Take a look at Joshua’s story. When people invested in him through Inter-Varsity’s camp and campus ministries, his outlook on life changed. “I wouldn’t still be a Christian today if it wasn’t for camp and campus ministry,” he says. “I would certainly say that my involvement in these places has saved my life.”
