Arizona, Ministry, outdoors

New Horizons/Teen Challenge @ Lake Powell

I just wanted to post a few pics from an amazing weekend with some amazing students and leaders I had at Lake Powell last weekend.

I was invited to speak at their annual Honors Retreat by pastor Daniel Williamson who is the Lead pastor of  Lamb Of God Church in Flagstaff.

All I can say is, this guy is a true authentic pastor. I watched him pour his life into these students and leaders.

The weekend was filled with outdoor activities as well as four sessions I themed as “SURVIVOR”.

I gave four sessions to help the teens survive in the real world after they graduated from New Horizons.

*Surviving Sons – Taken from the 33 Chilean miners trapped for 60 plus days in Chile.

*Between A Rock And A Hard Place – Taken from the Aron Rolston  Story.

*The “Z Man” – The Story of Zacchaeus who was a small man who was up a tree.

*The Apple Of God’s EyeTaken from Deuteronomy 32:10

Here are a few pics of an amazing crew in what we called Cathedral Cove.

Double click on the pic to enlarge it if you want to see a bigger image.

One of the coolest parts of the retreat for me was having my son Caleb with us the entire weekend.

One of the leaders of the retreat took us on a tour up Navajo Canyon.

The accommodations Captain Z provided for the leaders was really tough…man we suffered in this 54 footer.

What a team of leaders. These guys truly are servants.

I have had a lot of letters and notes handed to me over 30 years of ministry but this note on a napkin from a student named Zach is one of my favorites.

Just had to scan it and make it digital for histories sake.

Thank you Pastor Daniel and Teen Challenge for a great weekend in an amazing place.

Pastor Steve
