Friday through Saturday, June 20-21, the top of Bennett Hill in Red Boiling Springs was full of energy and teen spirit as over 40 teens from Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee all came together for the first ever Harvest Fellowship Church of God’ s “I Am” Youth Camp. Two days of basic life skills and Christianity was centered with the I Am Second platform to inspire our teens and to help them learn to share basic Christianity.
I Am Second is a multimedia movement and not-for-profit organization that is designed to inspire people to live I Am Second’s website advertises ways in which an individual can become involved with the movement .The group watched video-testimonies from Bethany Hamilton, professional surfer and shark attack survivor; Josh Turner, country music singer; Lecrae, Christian hip-hop musician; Trevor Bayne, NASCAR driver and learned there are many more like The Robertsons from Duck Dynasty. In these videos the speaker talks of how they have been transformed by the power of Jesus Christ and have found the power to overcome various struggles through putting Jesus Christ first. Each video-testimony is featured to correspond with a specific subject area or common struggle that people are experiencing or have experienced throughout their lives.
With the help of our State Representative, Kelly Keisling, Willette FD, Lafayette Police Department and many other volunteers, our youth experienced two days packed full of information vital for life.
