For many, Camp Fusion looks like a small slice of heaven, with youth from all different cultures gathering to worship the Lord together.
Since 2010, the camp has been serving students from the Baptist General Convention of Texas’ 320 intercultural churches. Camp Fusion is aimed at connecting second-generation students to each other and helping them grow spiritually at this crucial time in their faith journey.
“These are churches from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. And the next generation that are born here are very unique. They’re living between two worlds — their parents’ world and then their American world,” Mark Heavener, director of Intercultural Ministries, said.
Decisions for Christ
This year, the camp saw 381 middle and high school students and leaders from 26 churches and 15 different cultures attend.
Twelve students made the decision to follow Christ for the first time, and 66 recommitted themselves to Jesus.
Students also made commitments to help lead their youth groups, invite a friend to Bible study and be involved in cross-cultural missions. Fifty-six students said they felt a calling to full-time Christian service.
