Youth Camping

June through August - Our Middle School and High School camping program, as well as children’s camping, is held at Warner Camp, near Grand Junction, Michigan. The Directors and many counselors are Michigan youth leaders who highly value this summer experience for youth. The facility is great, the setting beautiful, and the cost very reasonable! Packets of registration materials will be sent to churches after the first of the year. For individual camp dates, check out the Warner Camp web site - www.warnercamp.com; (269) 434-6844.

Michigan Singers

Every year a group of approximately 40 -50 youth gather monthly for rehearsals, discipleship, and mentoring. This choir then travels several weekends during the year, touring to some of our state churches, and performing concerts for a week during the summer. They also are part of the SYC weekend. Information on joining the group is available at the State Youth Convention and St. Louis Camp Meeting. For other questions, contact Dick Forsman at rforsman0336@gmail.com; rforsman0336@gmail.com.


Michigan Student Leadership Institute (MSLI)


This exciting event, primarily for Senior High students, is a three year leadership training event where students investigate and learn about such things as their Spiritual Gifts, prayer, Bible study, accountability, and sharing their personal stories.

All this is done in a two day setting of fun, hands on activities, worship, eating, and making many new friends.
