Wow- Next Level Youth Camp was a week to never forget. What God did in five short days was completely life changing, and there is no real way to put it into words. “Next Level” became a reality and was no longer just the title of a camp, but something tangible to step into.
Going into internship in the youth department has been incredible. I have loved getting to know the young people and building relationships, but camp took everything a step farther. God placed a burden in my heart for this generation and completely broke my heart for our students. Every day the devotion times were amazing- getting to hear from the students on a closer level and hearing what God was doing on a daily basis in their lives through the night services, devotion times and throughout each day.
As much as I thought this week would be about the students (and it was) God completely changed MY life also. He went where no man could go, and did such a deep work in my heart and life. Every night the services were like no other. As soon as I thought they couldn’t get any better, the following night would blow our minds. The presence of God was thicker than I can ever remember feeling before. I had never seen young people so hungry and expectant for an encounter with God. It was an encouragement to me to continue to stay hungry and thirsty for God and to never become satisfied or complacent in my relationship with Him, but to always be striving for more- for the Next Level!
