We are very excited about FTTC 2019! Our theme for this year is Leading Like Jesus. Our topical class, taught by Erynn Sprouse, will focus on Jesus’ leadership, and his amazing ability to invest in the spiritual growth of all he came into contact with. For an hour each morning our campers will have the opportunity to learn from the example of Christ, and will be taught practical ways that they too can Lead Like Jesus and invest in the spiritual development of others.
Our textual class this year will be the book of James, taught by Kristy Huntsman. Through an in-depth, exegetical study of the inspired text of James, Kristy will share with our girls practical ways that our speech, attitudes and actions should truly be set apart as followers of Christ. This study will leave our campers with a deeper understanding of James and an increased desire to live in a way that brings glory to Christ.
Teaching I (for beginning campers) taught by Shari Moxley, will give our girls practical, hands-on instruction in how to effectively plan, prepare and teach Bible classes for children. Shari will guide our campers through each step of studying their topic, making it age-appropriate, and teaching in a way that engages their students while keeping the focus on God’s word. This class will also offer instruction in areas such as maintaining discipline in a Bible classroom, and working in partnership with parents as a Bible class teacher to promote the spiritual growth of the tender hearts entrusted to us as Bible class teachers. At the end of the week each camper will present a Bible class to the other campers and the teachers.
Teaching II (for experienced campers) taught by Lacy Crowell, will build on the concepts learned in Teaching I. We believe it is important for our campers to learn how to study and teach all aspects of God’s word, so this year we will be focusing on wisdom literature. Lacy will guide the girls through effectively exegeting their text, and putting their study into a lesson format that could be used to teach at a ladies’ day. The girls will learn the basics of Bible study, as well as lesson preparation and delivery. At the end of the week, each Teaching II camper will present an 8-minute lesson based on a text from the book of Psalms.
Visuals Lab, taught by Kathy Petrillo, is a time of hands-on training where Kathy will guide our girls through creating visual aids for their lessons. Each camper will create a visual aid to accompany their lesson that will be theirs to keep and use for years to come. Kathy will share with these young ladies various ways that visual aids can be used to reinforce their Bible classes in ways that will help the children remember the spiritual truths they have learned and apply them to their lives.
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a part of FTTC is watching the tremendous growth of our campers each year. We truly believe that our campers are some of the finest Christian young women around, and being able to invest in their spiritual growth year after year is a privilege that we hold dear. If you have a young lady between the ages of 13-18 who would love to learn how to engage in deep Bible study, and in turn share that study with others, a young lady who would benefit from deep and meaningful relationships with like-minded Christian young women, then this is the camp for you!
