Camp ABBA is a non-profit Christian organization, whose mission is to help expose children to the core values of faith, leadership, accountability, initiative, responsibility, and trust. Besides offering usual camp activities, we will be offering leadership training to prepare our children for the real world.
Churches have done a good job of promoting the importance of spiritual maturity, but most of them have failed to offer an environment in which spiritual growth is a lifestyle. There is a great need for more focus on the discipleship process and for the definition of our desired outcomes of such a process. Given the proper motivation, it seems that most believers in the world today, would be willing to commit to a more demanding regimen of spiritual development (Barna, 2001, p. 55).
At Camp ABBA, we will strive to implement 4 key concepts for leadership development.
CLARITY - The ability of the process to be communicated and understood by the people.
MOVEMENT - The steps in the process that cause people to move to greater areas of commitment.
ALIGNMENT - The arrangement youth and staff around the same process. We want to develop disciples who will turn into LEADERS and produce people who are engaged in the mission of Christ.
FOCUS - The commitment to abandon everything that falls outside of the process.
By following these 4 simple concepts and implementing a biblical process, we can and will produce disciples who WILL make a DIFFERENCE.
