From 19th - 21st September a very special group of people gathered at Malenovice, our conference centre and hotel in the Czech Republic (which is home to views like the one pictured above!). Who are these people? They are our camp team - many of the people who serve in our fourteen countries (plus some staff based in North America), serving the camp ministry year round.
These are the people who recruit short term teams, and work with local churches, and look after interns, and the fifteen-hundred other tasks that go into organising camps in our countries.
And these are the people I work closely with as I help support, resource and equip them. This is the one time of the year we all gather together and it's a really fun group of people! It was a joy to be all together - to debrief the summer, to rejoice in what God did through our one hundred and thirteen camps, and look ahead and plan for 2016 and beyond!
Here are some photos of our time together.
