Gathering close to 70 young people, providing them the space to be silly and have fun, the platform to worship God freely, and the opportunity to testify of His goodness and grace – it was a camp where godly encounters and genuine fellowship created more than just great memories.
On 23rd – 25th of September, the youths and young adults of Ablaze Brisbane held our annual camp at Mt. Tamborine. In line with this year’s theme of Legacy that Empowers, everyone stepped into the campsite with an expectant heart to encounter God and grow in our understanding of how each person can live to leave behind a godly legacy.
Crazy games are a staple of every good youths and young adults camp – and this year’s games unleashed competitiveness and craziness to the next level! There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as seeing the youths simply be youths!
The leadership team sought to empower a new generation of young people to leave a legacy of their own for Christ through Ablaze Camp 2017. What better way to do so than by providing each the platform to impart wisdom and speak from their heart? Over the course of three days our leaders, leaders-in-training and high school student leaders took the stage. Truly, it was a testament of the incredible work God has been doing in these young people who courageously shared about the journey they have walked with the Lord and the legacy they personally desired to impart.
No Ablaze camp is ever complete without extended times of worship, prayer and meditation, to seek and encounter the presence of God. Amidst the raised hands and voices, we believe that heavenly transactions were made. It was nothing short of amazing to witness people rededicating their lives to the Lord and earnestly expressing their desire to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. To top it all off, we excitedly announced the official creation of our ‘Wildfire’ outreach ministry! We kick-started the initiative with a workshop where our young people learned what it meant to be ignited with a passion for the lost. More importantly however, was their coming to terms that this flame should not die with the individual but must be passed along to every succeeding generation.
It is Ablaze’s vision to disciple generations who change nations, and we pray that the young people of this generation who attended the camp returned renewed, restored and reawakened.
