Mr. John Skaggs - 野营 Ministry Chair

When I came to 澳门网上赌城网址大全 for the one-year Bible Certificate, I took a camping class and discovered how powerful the outdoor setting could be in imparting 圣经的真理. The idea of using the outdoors to point people to Christ and His Word ignited a fire in my heart.

Christian camping has proven to be a great tool for evangelism, discipleship, and leadership training. I am committed to training camping leaders who will go around the world to reach their generation for Christ.
