Wagon Train - Summer 2016 - FT

The sweet thing about working with kids from ages 8-11 years old is that they speak exactly what is on their minds. For the most part, it’s great. With that type of blunt honesty you also get the, “Are you almost done?” comments in the middle of a chapel message, or the occasional, “You know […]

1 Kings 18:37 says, “Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.” When the Program team sat down last September to plan the summer theme for 2016, this was chosen as our main verse. We had the honor […]

That secret is Wildwood, a discipleship camp focused on training high school students to be disciples that go home and make disciples.

    Hume San Diego: Summer 2016 Recap

    Throughout each week this summer, we challenged students to proclaim God’s truth in an ungodly culture. On one Monday night, after our speaker shared the gospel, there was a student who was so moved and convicted by the Lord’s Spirit, that he knew he needed to fully surrender his life to the Lord.

    Hume New England: Summer 2016 Recap

    Kauai: Summer 2016 Recap

    The island of Kauai feels like a small town. Of the four counties of Hawaii, Kauai is the least populated. There are only about 65,000 residents. To put that into perspective the entire population of Kauai is about the size of Lodi, California. As with any tight community, relationships are very important. From Kekaha to […]
