Roy Holladay Gives Feast and Youth Camp Update
January 27, 2011
United Youth Camps
When the United Church of God began in 1995, the first order of business for the newly elected Council was to establish camps for the youth of the Church. United remains committed to the youth of the Church in all of its planning. This summer we are planning to operate summer camps in the Northwest, California, Missouri, Ohio and Alabama. We also plan to have 10 preteen camps this summer. We have many experienced and dedicated ministers and staff members eager to serve.
We have recently had two teleconferences devoted to organizing the camps for 2011 and on into the future. Steve Nutzman has been appointed overall camp director. Steve has many years of experience in working with the camp programs and is already energetically organizing the program.
The theme for camp this year is “A World Away From the World.” The camp zone is a foretaste of what the world tomorrow will be like. Our teens will be able to live God’s way with other youth of like mind without the pressures and distractions of this age.
Feast of Tabernacles
Planning for the Feast of Tabernacles is well under way for 2011. The administration, along with Charles Melear, has held planning sessions to organize the Feast. We will have 10 Feast sites this year in the United States:
- Bend, Oregon
- Branson, Missouri
- Escondido, California
- Galveston, Texas
- Gatlinburg, Tennessee
- Jekyll Island, Georgia
- Panama City Beach, Florida
- Steamboat Springs, Colorado
- Virginia Beach, Virginia
- Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin
God has blessed us with several capable Feast coordinators. During the upcoming ministerial conference we plan to have additional United Youth Camp and Festival meetings.
