For four days, you'll enjoy relaxation, fun, and Christian fellowship in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest. There will be singing, prayer, classes for all ages, sports, great food, and lots of time to chill. Accommodations, activities, meals, and a camp t-shirt are all included!
Camp SpeakerThis year’s speaker is Dr. Ryan M. McGraw, a Morton H. Smith Professor of Systematic Theology at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He has published near thirty books, including five books on the Trinity, and numerous articles and reviews. Having pastored in a Baptist church, the PCA, and the OPC, he currently serves on the session of Covenant Community OPC in Taylors, SC. He and his wife Krista have four children: Owen, Calvin, Jonathan, and Callie. Taking up skateboarding again in his late thirties, he enjoys taking vans full of children from church to skate parks.
Does the Trinity matter? How can a doctrine so difficult and beyond become near and dear to us? Would it make a difference if we took the Trinity out of the Gospel? Yet the New Testament so weaves the Trinity into every aspect of faith and life that there could be neither a message to preach nor a God to know without it. In this conference, Ryan McGraw seeks to help us grasp the doctrinal and practical relevance of the Trinity for everything we believe and do. Ultimately, the messages are about knowing the right God in the right way, and letting our doxology spill over into our worship, devotion, evangelism, and families.
