Adult summer conferences allow men, women, and families to be encouraged during a time of growth and renewal. Each provides a special time to connect with old and new friends from across the country and around the world.

Youth camps provide special, Christ-centered opportunities to be strengthened in the faith while building leadership skills for the future. Week-long sports camps build athletic skills while enabling young athletes to grow spiritually.
