Sports camp was very successful again this summer! We had just under 40 youth come out to the week long camp that included sports and activities like basketball, soccer, football, capture the flag, slip and slide baseball and a beach day!!
A huge thank you to our summer interns (Katie, Meg, Cory and Bailey) who planned and ran this event with excellence and excitement!. They took on the lions share of the planning and execution and I couldn’t have been prouder of them...

This trip has exceeded all my expectation, it has been better than I would have ever expected. The culture and food is beyond explainable, but most of all the people is what I love the most...

Greetings from Mexico...
We are are all running full blast now and seeing much accomplished. The house builds are both progressing rapidly and it looks like we will be finished them without any major difficulty. It is great to have experience in construction and teamwork...

On Sunday, February 12 we had a Church Wide Faith at Home event: Let Your Light Shine. It included all SBC Church family members; the young, the old and the in-between. Together we worshiped and learned how to let our lights shine.

I wear many hats as a youth pastor here at Summerland Baptist church. It just comes with the territory. I am a worship leader, youth pastor, mentor, friend, preacher, teacher, taxi driver, and most importantly; a husband and father. Whenever I am asked to write blog post I always seem to attack it from the youth pastor perspective and to be fair, that is appropriate. Today I would like to share from a husband and father perspective, understanding I can never really take off the youth pastor hat… even if I tried.

In the first week of August, the field at Glenfir was transformed into an Olympic playing field, filled with middle school youth from our church and wider community. Campers at SBC’s Summer Games camp were divided into four teams who competed throughout the week in a variety of events which included soccer, road hockey and capture the flag. Using sports as a launching point, we also hosted devotions, called “Coaches’ Corners”, talking about what it means to follow Christ and discussing sportsmanship, courage, perseverance and God’s love. It was a fantastic week and I’m sure that many of our youth are looking forward to participating again next year!
