What a great event not to be missed!

Every year as we plan for another “Big Camp” we sincerely pray that God will give us the right presenters who will truly bless our campers. We want Big Camp to be the highlight of your year, an inspiration for your spiritual walk with Jesus and a true blessing for each and every one.

Once again, we believe that God has truly blessed us in our preparations and we are looking forward to meeting all of you to another spiritual feast, a time of prayer, fellowship, laughter and so much more.

Our theme for 2018 is: SALT – flavour the world, and we pray that Big Camp 2018 will equip and inspire you to go back to your local communities to flavour your world.

Don’t miss out! Apply online or fill out the application form inside the magazine.

– Pr. Mike Faber
