Christian Worldview Camps
It is hard to believe that as many as 70% of students, who grow up in a Christian home and claim to be Christian, leave the faith as they enter, progress and graduate from college. While it is reported that perhaps as many as 30% eventually return to the church, is there something that can be done to stem the tide from them leaving in the first place.
But, what? The easy answer is discipleship. That sounds good. Sounds like the right answer. After all, it is in the Bible.
But, how? Four areas within two categories. First, the categories: What we believe as Christians and What are the prevailing worldviews they will encounter at college and beyond. In what we believe, we must first teach students what historical, Biblical Christian has long held as true and orthodox. Then, we must teach them where it is found and how to find it for themselves. Like a good counterfeit detective, once they have a good grasp on the true, it is much easier to spot false. They will encounter worldviews that run counter to Christianity. These worldviews break into two areas: religions and non-religious worldviews.
One Week, Lots of Ground to Cover.
We have packed a lot of topics to cover in only a one week day-camp environment. Our primary goal is to explore as many topics as possible. With each topic, we will give students lots of tools to do further research. Our desire is that they will remain in Bible study with their camp small group to continue discussing both their Christian faith and how best to defend their faith against the myriad of opposition.
While we will be covering a lot of ground, we will also have fun. We will pray for one another. We will share a meal. We will sing to our Savior. And, they will walk away confident in their Christian profession and prepared to withstand the attacks - both implicit and explicit - forthcoming at college and beyond.
