Summer event geared for junior highers
Helping junior high school students understand the basics of the Christian faith is the focus of a new event for seventh and eighth graders this summer at Baptist Bible College.
"Boot Camp: Basic Training for Junior Highers" is an experience students will never forget. The week-long camp aims to help students build a strong foundation in preparation for continued growth and leadership development in their high school years.
Boot Camp runs July 12-16 for students entering seventh and eighth grades.
Details are online at www.bbc.edu/bootcamp.
Each day of the week focuses on a different theme, answering four big questions facing junior high students today:
- How do I know God loves me?
- How do I know I'm saved?
- What do I do when I sin?
- Can I make a difference?
"The purpose of Boot Camp is to help each junior higher think through four foundational spiritual questions as well as learn basic skills for personal spiritual growth," said Dwight Peterson, a BBC assistant professor, veteran youth worker, and Boot Camp director. "Each day we will commit to not only provide campers with the tools to be able to answer those four basic questions, but also provide individual attention to allow each camper to work through their personal response to those questions."
Students will grow through individual devotional times, general sessions, and relationships with counselors and new friends.
