Lake Champion - Glen Spey, New York

We will be joining around 200-300 High School students for a great weekend at Lake Champion in Glen Spey, New York! It’s a weekend in the mountains. It’s a weekend with your friends.

WHO: This is for anyone in 9th-12th grade.  Invite your friends!

Buddy Ministry: Friendship, Discipleship, and Kingdom Building

Churches are often unsure of how to integrate children, teens, and adults with various disabilities into the life of their congregation. A Buddy/Friendship Ministry is often the best way to serve families effectively and be an essential part of your church’s Disability Ministry. A Buddy provides assistance, support, and friendship - allowing the whole family to participate as valuable members of the congregation
