  • Speaker: Darin McWatters

    Darin McWatters grew up in Phoenix, AZ where he learned to wear long pants in 120 degree weather, apply sunscreen without blotching, and avoid the dreaded venom of the Gila monster. For a couple of years he lived like a tamborineless gypsy, roaming incessantly back and forth across the highways and byways of America in the band, Everybodyduck. Then he did some missions work with mountain people in the Sierra Nevadas, as the Program Director of Hume Lake Christian Camps and founder of the Joshua Wilderness Institute. Now he lives in Long Beach, CA where he still wears long pants and sunscreen but almost never thinks about Gila monsters. He is currently Pastor of Teaching and Arbor Road Church, and a Chaplain with the Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department. He has been married to his wife Shannon for 17 years, and has four children Jack, Hank, Lily, and Will. Understandably, he is very tired most of the time.

2016 Theme: BINGO

We live in the midst of a world that is not the way God intended it to be.
The prophet Elijah also experienced ungodliness happening all around him yet chose to trust and obey the Lord's commands by taking a stand and proclaiming God's truth. This summer Hume will take a look at the life of Elijah and challenge students to proclaim God’s truth in an ungodly culture.

Theme Verse

1 Kings 18:37a - “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God.”
