If you’re seeking to engage the world for Christ, then this camp is for you. Through various interactions, you’ll experience the emphases of Advance: 1) "from the Word" 2) "to my heart" 3) "to the world." You’ll be walked through practical steps to understand what God is saying, what that truth means and how to communicate the truth to different audiences. Join us for an intense, action-packed week of being saturated in the Scripture and seeing the gospel go forth!
