Nameless Summer Fun

Good afternoon everyone!

This is just a quick note about a couple upcoming events we've got for the student ministry. The first is an event called Nameless Summer Fun. It got its name because the first year I ever did it, I couldn't think of a good name for it. So now, it's Nameless Summer Fun.

Your students have been warned, but I will reiterate it here. Make sure they wear something that can get messy (possibly ruined) and wet! It's going to be a ton of fun. We'll get started at 6:30pm and will be done by 8:00. We will be at the fields behind the church building. Looking forward to it!

Good afternoon parents and students!

d*weekend 2019is coming up quick! I hope you are as excited about our biggest event of the year as I am. Registration for d*weekend has been live for a while now and I've seen a good number of your students registered which is great! For those of you who have not yet registered your student, please do so as timely as possible. It helps me with planning this massive event to have students registered sooner than later.

This year's d*weekend will easily be the best one we've ever put on. With many other churches partnering with us, we have really cool opportunities that we...

Good afternoon parents and students!

It has been quite a while since my last newsletter! I apologize for the lack of communication. These have been some very busy months both in the ministry as well as in our home. My wife and I just welcomed our second child into the world this Tuesday so we are adjusting to life as a family of four. We've heard from a lot of you about praying for us and offering to help which we have appreciated so much. Even if I haven't responded to all of your individual messages to us, please know that they have been a huge encouragement to us.

It's hard to believe that we have...

Good afternoon parents and students!

It has been quite a while since my last newsletter! I apologize for the lack of communication. June was an incredibly busy month for me with WinShape Camp followed by a mission trip to Brazil. I've been back in the office for the last two weeks and have been playing catch up. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we quickly are approaching August and the start of the next school year. 

Hopefully you have heard through some of our other information outlets that our High School Summer Retreat is just over a week away! The registration process is fully onlin...

Good afternoon parents and students!

I hope you are as excited about this weekend retreat as I am. It is going to one of the more impactful events that we have ever put on. I can't wait to see how God moves in the lives of our boys this weekend.

Here are some last minute details about this weekend in case you missed it.
When you registered your student for this retreat, you should have received a confirmation email. In that confirmation email is a document called Reflect '18 Info Sheet. In that document is a schedule for the weekend, a packing list, and an important form that Mt Shepherd Retreat Center req...

Good afternoon parents and students!

The main purpose of this post is to let you know that registration is now open for our brand new event called REFLECT which is coming up April 27-29 at Mt Shepherd Retreat Center. This event is for 7th-12th grade boys only. I hope to have something similar to this for our girls next semester. I had originally planned to do an event simultaneously for girls for the April dates but decided to postpone it for several reasons. If you would like more details on why it was postponed, feel free to reply to this email and ask.

The heart behind REFLECT is to teach our boys...

Here are the last minute details that you need:
Tomorrow, plan on getting to Rich Fork around 6:30 p.m. The first session will start at 7:00 p.m. sharp so getting there early will ensure we get you checked in in a timely manner. When you arrive, we will have some people there to help you know where to go and what to do. Please...

Good afternoon parents and students!

I hope everyone has had a great start to the year and that you have enjoyed a few snow days this week. I am SO excited to be getting into 2018 and have some awesome events planned. I just got back yesterday from a conference all about WinShape Camps (which will include our 7th-9th graders as campers and our 10-12 graders as volunteers), and am pumped up about it! It is going to be even better than last year. I was looking forward to telling you all about it this Sunday but have decided to postpone our Parent Meeting to next week, January 28th, at 4:00pm. I have seve...
