The Experience Fall 2020 Edition


THE COAST at Word of Life Florida

BY KYLE GRAY '99 & '00

S ummer 2020 was incredible at The Coast. We had the amazing privilege of watching God's hand move in the hearts of both staff and campers. We were able to experience six weeks of camp, during which God brought us 1,597 campers! Our theme this summer was Authentic . The heartbeat was to see campers challenged to live out real faith, not just a “faith” of talk, but of action and substance. Praise God, we saw lives changed! 307 campers made the public decision to trust Christ as their Savior, and over 1,000+ made the decision to dedicate their lives or an area of their lives to Christ.

After being cooped up in quarantine, there were so many who just couldn’t wait to “get out and live life” during the summer. Many parents and campers, with tear-filled eyes, thanked us for providing an opportunity to step out of the madness and breathe fresh air. We were able to connect with our faithful returners, as well as many whom we had never met before! This summer, we were joined by two churches from Ohio, a church from Michigan, one from Delaware and even a church from Connecticut. These, as well as from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and the surrounding states, made for an incredible summer.
