convergence_adA Study on the Life of David
and Making Godly Decisions

Camp Speaker -
Erik Reed

We are all on a journey, often finding ourselves standing at the convergence of truth and its imitation. These convergent moments have the power to alter our lives and impact God's Kingdom for eternity.  But, how do we decide in which direction to move? Studying the journey of David, students will be challenged to apply godly discernment by trusting God  completely, recognize the difference between God's truth and men's advice, realize the impact of their decisions and surround themselves with people who reinforce the need for godly wisdom. Join us on the journey.



David and Goliath: How do I define my relationship with the Lord? Where is my trust found in decision making? Students will learn that in order to have holy discernment you must first have a relationship with God, through Christ. The relationship is the foundation for David's trust and reliance on the Lord.
Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:26-51
Key Verse: Psalm 62:1-2


David and Saul: How do I make choices based on God's truth when other choices seem justifiable? Students will be challenged to discern what is justifiable and what is God's truth. Students will learn how to make lasting Christ-like decisions concerning what is right and what is easy.
Scripture: 1 Samuel 24: 1-15
Key Verse: Psalm 111:10


David and Nathan: Do poor decisions keep me from reconciliation with God? Do I have to carry this guilt around forever? Students will see how David's poor decision led to God's discipline which developed character. Students will be reminded of the hope for reconciliation in spite of bad decisions.
Scripture: 2 Samuel 11:1-5, 14-15, 26; 12:1 & 10, 13-14, 20
Key Verse: Psalm 31:4-5


David and Jonathan: How do the people in my life influence my decisions? Students will discover the role of community and the importance of accountability and mentorship in holy discernment. Students will see this by looking at David's relationship with Jonathan and Nathan.
Scripture: 1 Samuel 18:1, 3-4; 19:1-7
Key Verse: Psalm 133:1


Camp Worship Leader - Jarod Espy


A mysterious "Amazing Race" type experience where students race the clock to "decode" the secret messages of East Asian influence. Using smart phone technology, Instagram and their Bible app, students will try to be the first to crack the code before time ends. Dress in dark clothing and wear spy gear.

A contemplative prayer experience where students pray for the nations while traveling to 6 different stations on campus by their decisions. Eventually, they will come to the decision point: In what way will I help further the message of Jesus Christ? Or will I not?

Get your game faces on and come ready to compete for the FUGE Cup! This year's Mega Relay theme is "WHITE OUT."   Wear dark shirts underneath your white apparel.
