2017 Discipleship Camp

 

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what.

Hebrews 4:12-13

The focus of the Christian Discipleship Camp is to equip young people for life through Bible teaching, practical lessons and discussion.

You might be about to consider leaving home shortly – maybe to move onto studies and flatting, or perhaps a career and even starting your own family.

As we become adults in this crazy world we often come under pressure to conform to the ‘worlds wisdom’. It can be overwealming dealing with your friends and family that may view Christianity just a fairy story. We aim to give you encouragement, wisdom and tools to continue in strength with your walk with the Lord.

This camp is designed to help you live ALL of LIFE for GOD.

Topics covered include:

  • How does Christianity stack up compared to other religious worldviews?
  • How can we maintain our walk with the Lord once we leave home?
  • Christian Flatting: a howto guide!
  • What is my calling in life?
  • How are we to relate to the world?
  • Defending our faith against naysayers

Fusion Collaborative Leadership Event

About Fusion

CCNZ (Christian Camping New Zealand) is flying over two vibrant speakers from Australia along with another speaker from the North Island to Waihola for a combined leadership weekend. We are combining with Tirohanga Camp (Dunedin), Lakeland Park (Queenstown) and Camp Columba (Pukerau) to be encouraged, develop our Christian walk and learn more about what it is to be an effective leader in Christian Camping.

Come and learn from three of the best. Alice will share the overarching narrative of God’s kind of leadership, alongside Chis & Gretchen, who will use the language of values to help you grow in your practical leadership skills.

2015 Going Deeper Discipleship Camp

 

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. – 2 Timothy 3:16

The focus of the Christian Discipleship Camp is to equip young people for life through Bible teaching, practical lessons and discussion.

You might be about to consider leaving home shortly – maybe to move onto studies and flatting, or perhaps a career and even starting your own family.

In the world we live as adults we may come under pressure to conform to ‘worldly wisdom’, you maybe overwealmed by secularism and pressured to view Christianity as a fable. We aim to give you encouragement, wisdom and tools to continue in strength with your walk with the Lord.

This camp is designed to help you live ALL of LIFE for GOD.

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what. – Hebrews 4:12-13
