Family Mission Adventures
Bethany Bible Camp: Bemidji, MN
What's the training like?
Family MA training is, well, family friendly. We often get asked, "What if my kid is loud?" My response is usually something along the lines of, "they'll fit right in!" Although some of the training the kids will be doing their own thing, we do our best to integrate young and old in everything we do. Our speaker will lead us for 6 sessions sharing practical and spiritual advice when doing missions as a family as well as challenging each of us in our our spiritual walk with Jesus. We will also cover good stuff like:
- How to encourage your kids to share their faith
- How to be a missionary where you live
We will also enjoy a great time worshipping the Lord together as well as beautiful fellowship!
Family Mission Adventures (MA) is an all-inclusive missions training experience for the whole family. Located at Bethany Bible Camp near Bemidji, MN, this is more than just summer camp. Mission Adventures is a part of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) and it exists to equip families in missions and encourage families in their faith.
Following camp there will be an optional outreach in Duluth, MN from July 1-3. This will be practically applying what we learned at camp. We will do family street ministry, prayer walks, sidewalk testimonies, learn about current ministries already happening in Duluth and more.
Since we all have families we know how tight money can be. We have tried to make both the training and outreach as affordable as possible but understand that it will be a sacrifice for many families to come. We understand! It is a sacrifice but we believe it will be worth the investment!!! To keep the costs low, we actually have our staff pay the same amount as you would pay. That's right, our family and all of our staff will be paying, not getting paid so we can keep the costs low
Camp: June 27-30
12 & Up: $175
Optional Outreach in Duluth: July 1-3
12 & Up $75
Prices do not include transportation.
