A Summer To Remember

As summer comes to end, I find myself with a mixed bag of emotions. I am sad because it is my favorite season of the year and I hate to see it go. I rejoice because as I look back over the last three months of ministry, I sit back and celebrate; celebrate all the great things God has done in the life of Rock Harbor Student Ministries.

Through all our different events and gatherings, relationships were deepened. We grew in relationship with one another, we grew in our relationship with our God. It's been good!

Here is a look into the summer of 2010...

As in all of life, with the close of one season, a new one emerges. As we move forward I am confident that the good work God has begun, and continues to do, will continue long into the next season and all those that follow.

Grub Camp 2010

Over the last 20 years I have been taking students up to Indian Henry Campground on the Clackamas River, to take part in what has affectionately become known as Grub Camp. Today I returned from yet another great time on the river.

There is nothing quite like getting a bunch of guys away from their usual settings and routines to spend some quality time together. We laugh, we play, we have great conversations, and so much more.

I loved the words of one parent after her son returned home, "He came home desperately stinky and filthy and just happy as all get out. Thanks Pastor Brian!" Love it!

We have two slogans for Grub Camp. They go up as boys and return home men, and What happens at Grub Camp stays at Grub Camp!

Due to the the second slogan, I can't tell you everything we do, but this year's video should give you a pretty good idea.
