Who We Are - About-2

about

We exist to inspire students to live a life with Jesus. 

our story

BigStuf is a ministry full of gifted people who love to share their skills, talents and faith to make a difference in the lives of students. Our desire is to create environments that enhance the opportunities to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been blessed with the opportunity to do summer camps for middle and high school students for 30 years, and we are more committed than ever before to creating the best camp experience for your students to experience Christ. We are so grateful to all the churches that have trusted us with their students over the years. We value the opportunity to lead them and don’t take lightly the responsibility we have to point them towards God. We come to work each day not to do a job; we come to fulfill a calling to lead students into life changing relationships with Jesus Christ.

bigstuf through the years

Just as every moment of camp is valuable, every moment of our 30 year history is valuable as well, allowing us to learn and grow as we connect your students to the God who loves them.
