JOIN US FOR OUR VIRTUAL SYNOD NOV. 6TH AND 7TH. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Join us so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord! (Psalm 102)

In Matthew 28 Jesus calls us to make disciples, not just Christians. He doesn’t just call us to baptize others- he calls us to teach them. Next Generation Discipleship pursues this mandate, this Great Commission. Passing on the faith is a call woven into the three areas of our diocesan mission statement: it is part of strengthening our current churches, part of planting new churches, and part of calling others to lead us in doing so. Bishop Neil has even said that it may be the most important charge of our work for the Kingdom.

We are intentionally trying to disciple the next generation through our three main programs: Camp Araminta, Dynamos, and Soul in the City. Each of these programs offer leadership training and experience for those seeking to serve. Please visit these webpages to learn more about each program. 

 

camparamintaicon This summer camp is intended for rising 4th through 12th grade campers who are seeking to strengthen their understanding of, and relationship with, Jesus. The camp offers different levels of leadership at a variety of ages which enables multi-generational worship and discipleship. It is a powerful opportunity to see in action, and it is a ton of fun!
dynamosicon This retreat weekend is intended for high school students. Past participants of the camp, also currently in high school, lead new participants on a weekend retreat full of activities designed to show Christ’s love for each person. Being a participant is a meaningful experience, and being on team is an incredible opportunity for ministering to other students.
sitcicon This week-long service camp is integral to developing an outward-focus for missional discipleship. Rising 7th through 12th grade students camp at a church, then spend their days on mission at a local place of need, offering a variety of ways to minister directly to the local community. Evenings are filled with fun activities, powerful worship and teaching, and discipleship groups. It is a life-changing experience.

The Gulf Atlantic Diocese is an active part of the ACNA’s Next Generation Leadership Initiative, striving to raise up the next generation of leaders for our province. Our diocese also seeks to support individual parishes and churches with training and resources as well as networking and praying for each other.
