at Hume Lake and I am worn out.
But the time is now
to start preparing for our Lake trip
coming up in a few weeks.
We call our Lake trip.
River Romp, even though it is at the Lake.
no student has ever asked me about this discrepancy.
We used to go to the river at River Romp,
but the Rivers out here in California are mostly
in the High Desert regions
and are freakish places of weather in the month of August.
Thus 5 years ago, I decided to move the trip
to the Lake, but did not have the heart to
change the name to Lake Romp.
The name River Romp is kind of a sacred cow
around our youth ministry.
Fellow youth pastors,
are there any ridicolous sacred cows
like this in your ministry?
I would like to hear them
if you have one...
Here is our flyer for the trip
Here are my Pre-Trip Stats:
Dates: August 19-22
Students Going: 90+
Volunteer leaders: 25
Boat Drivers: 10
Degree of Difficulty in planning the trip (1-10 scale): 7
Best Part about the Trip: Worship under the stars/Wakeboarding
Theme: One Truth, One God, One People (part of our One Summer Series)
Most Interesting thing about this year's trip: We have 10 group home guys coming with us
Goal: Students hear from God while away from the OC and that students are challenged to live for One truth, as they follow the One God and live as One people as they head back to school
