Welcome to the Conference Headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church for the state of Indiana. We are a Christian faith community, which bases its hope and future in Jesus Christ. Our administration and staff provide strategic leadership, support services and resources to more than 81 congregations and 14 schools within Indiana to achieve our shared vision of proclaiming Christ, nurturing believers and serving humanity. Thank you for stopping by.
When you think camp meeting, what pops into your mind? I recall pounding tent stakes, hauling stacks of folding chairs, and a pre-week of work assignments away from my district churches. I also have positive memories like fellowship with friends, book sales at the ABC, pastors’ ordinations, delicious homemade veggie-burgers, and the King’s Herald Quartet singing before HMS Richards, Sr. preached. I still remember attending those early morning sermons and prayer services with mom in my younger days (dad had to work during the week to pay for our attendance). Some camp meeting memories have faded, but anticipation for spiritual fuel for my soul remains. What musings do you have of camp meeting?
Before you know it, Indiana Camp Meeting 2017 will be here.
God has remarkably blessed us in the preparation process to have dynamic speakers and presenters. We are grateful to Him and them for the privilege of all these special guest presenters.
Indiana Camp Meeting 2017 has been evolving for more than a year. To prepare for a spiritual feast at camp meeting, a theme, musicians, presenters, and schedules must be settled in advance. Our evening speaker, Robert Folkenberg, Jr., agreed two years ago to come while at the General Conference 2015 Session in San Antonio. Robert and Audrey will be with us from Hong Kong and the China Union Mission. You will want to hear the story of God’s working across China. Also, each evening Jim Nix from the White Estate will feature Adventist pioneer stories.
Please check out our recent Conference Connections below for more of our guest speaker list. I’m especially excited about our youth presenters. We have Ray Stephenson (Bloomington First Public Campus Ministries Chaplain) with us for our Primary-Junior-Earliteens, Eric Paddock (Coach of the Andrews University Gymnics) for our Youth, and John Baxter (Adventist Frontier Missions) for our Young Adults on the final weekend. Parents, you’ll want to bring your young people to camp meeting for sure!
These meetings aren’t just planned to fill your schedule this summer, but they have been structured “to fan the flame” of spiritual revival. That’s our theme for this year’s camp meeting. I pray that each of us is daily fanning the flame of walking with Jesus in our own hearts. Our priority is to prepare for Jesus’ soon return. Why not plan your vacation at camp meeting this year. Let’s “fan the flame” together!
