Episode 15: So, how Christian are you?

Mar 22, 2022 | Podcast | 1 comment

So, wow Christian are you?

That’s a real question, one that camp leaders get. It’s a question that parents are wondering when they’re making choices about the kinds of experiences to say yes to for their kids. They wonder what happens to their kids if they send them to a camp that’s “too religious” just as much, or maybe more, than a camp that isn’t faith-centric.

They say society is “getting more secular” in our collective understanding of the world. What that means for the Church, how we approach that as camp leaders is worth exploring. It’s not time to be ambiguous about who we are, and Whose we are.

    Great to hear your friendly voices!! I laughed out loud at the “we’re kinda Jesus meh” part of the conversation. Keep it up, Jake!
