July7th, 2014 – July 12th, 2014, Idyllwild, CA, Idyllwild Pines Camp’s Encounter 924 students continued their summer leadership training, spiritual teaching, life skill training, and fun. Here are the highlights of the week.
Leadership Training with Kevin Relyea
Kevin Relyea introduced the 6th lie: A leader can lead from a distance. Encounter 924 students then were assigned key scripture that point out the characteristics of leaders. The verse that resonated with the group was John 10:3-5. Jesus explains the characteristic of the Good Shepherd, and in that He claims to be the Shepard to his people.
“The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”” John 10:3-5
