Church youth attend Summer Christian Youth Leadership Camp


Every year, Grace Christian Fellowship sends a group of young people to Super Summer, a Christian leadership camp for teenagers and young adults, which is held at Oklahoma Baptist University.

During the week, the youth are organized into small ‘families’ identified by color and led by youth ministers and volunteers from churches. The camp focuses on developing leadership abilities in ministry as well as building friendships with other like-minded teens at the camp.

“I absolutely love this camp, said Savannah Mott, youth minister at Grace Christian Fellowship. "It is one of the best leadership camps that I have ever been to, and I am so excited to see the positive change it brings in the youth that attend. 

"My youth are always so stoked to volunteer to help in the church and community after the camp and I wish more youth would check it out!”
