Welcome to Lead Camp

What is Lead Camp?

A weekend experience designed to challenge students to become servant leaders to impact their families, church, school, and community. This weekend is for select students who have completed 7th through 12th grade who the Student Pastor/Minister/Director would like to see developed as a leader.

Our purpose

Inspire and Equip Students

The purpose of Lead Camp is to inspire and equip Christian students.  Students will have the opportunity to meet other students from across Texas while being in-depth leadership training through four worship experiences, five small group sessions, and experiential challenge courses. It is our desire to develop in each student strong and lasting leadership skills that will enable them to lead with intentionality and purpose in their church, school, community, and around the world for Jesus Christ.
