Student Pastor John Freeman - Another Great Week at Summer Salt Camp!

We just finished going to our fifth Summer Salt Camp in a row and it just keeps getting better! We had a terrific time! It is the most Biblically-based, CHRIST-centered camp I’ve ever attended. What makes Summer Salt Camp so special?

1) An exceptional staff of 35 plus leaders that shares Jesus and lots of love to our students.

2) Intense worship services. The music is very uplifting and exalts the Savior with every song.

3) Expository preaching of the Word of God every day.

4) Small group Bible study every day for students and adults.

5) A high-quality drama that speaks to our students and opens up great questions, discussion, and application. The camp has a theme every year. This year it was called “ROOM 511.”

6) 20 plus Biblically-centered Personal Interest Conference’s (PICs) for students to attend one every day.

7) Church group devotions. Our group examines what we learn every day together. This gives opportunity to build unity among our church group.

I have several THANK YOUs as it relates to Summer Salt Camp...

I want to thank ALL our chaperones for attending camp with me and making a gospel influence in the lives of our students. I want to give a shout out to Mary Linder, Dana Smith, Jill Harris, B.J. Freeman, Cathy Gratz, Rachael Bouknight, Meri Funk, Jack Linder, Greg Gratz, Bradley Fayonsky, Josh Axmann, and Wynn Cross. THANK YOU for investing in the next generation!

I want to thank ALL of ERBC for praying for Camp. God worked in the lives of our students because you prayed. THANK YOU for seeking the Father above on behalf of our students. THANK YOU for investing in the next generation!

I want to thank ALL of our parents for encouraging their students to attend Summer Salt Camp. I so appreciate each of you for investing in your student’s spiritual growth. THANK YOU for investing in the next generation!

Last but not least, I want to thank ALL of our 85 students for choosing to go to Summer Salt Camp. THANK YOU for going! I pray and expect to take even more next year. I pray you will not forget what an intense spiritual week it was and that you will live out what you learned. Continue to “listen with intent to obey.”



OUR VISION for ERBC Student Ministry: To see every student that is entrusted to our ministry to place their faith in Jesus, to grow deep roots in Christ, to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and to see that student lead someone to faith in Jesus, grow deep roots in Christ, and they to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

OUR DESIRE for ERBC Students: Know it! - God’s Word • Own it! - Faith In Christ • Live it! - Abide In Christ • Share it! - Tell Others About JESUS!
