How do I know that the world didn't start with a big bang? How do I know that speaking in tongues is not the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost? These are just a few of the questions, that I was recently asked at camp. I love receiving questions from young people, because it shows there is a thirst and seeking for truth.
I have been involved with BYC for several years now. One of the attributes of camp that I find amazing is how many churches are represented. The brother and sister who run the kitchen live in Indiana. The brother and sister that handle the snack bar live in Arizona. The brother who operates the sound equipment lives in Pennsylvania. The brother and sister who oversee all the janitorial work are from New York. You say, what does this have to do with young people. The workers, leaders and ministers are not there because their church is sponsoring it and they feel obligated, but they are there because of a burden to help the next generation.
A few days after camp I received the following text, "I was seeking for the Holy Ghost. I trust my Lord and I believe that He's given it to me. The first 2 nights I felt numbed and I wanted to feel His presence. I prayed and prayed and Tuesday night I just broken down in tears. I felt His presence in the rest of the service and its changed me forever." This sums up what BYC is about and that is young people being changed forever.
Michael and his wife Crista, are blessed to have three children (Noah, Gracie, Luke). They live in the middle TN area and attend Eagle Christian church. He counts it a honor to be involved with Eagle’s View, BYC and serving as a evangelist. They enjoy being outdoors, traveling and above all serving the Lord.
