Work with Intention French Camp Academy is committed to a relational model of ministry. We build personal relationships with students as an essential vehicle for speaking truth into their lives. Each staff person called to serve at FCA participates in regularly scheduled work times alongside students. This is an intentional opportunity for each staff member to use their unique gifts to teach young people skills and biblical truth and thus fulfill their purpose in ministry at FCA. The Student Life Department utilizes all FCA departments in the Student Work Program to instruct young people in a Biblical work ethic while developing relationships and training in basic life skills. This program also helps meet the ongoing needs of the FCA campus while instilling a sense of ownership and belonging to the residential students. Work directors recognize the importance of commending students for a job well done and the satisfaction of learning a new ability. An FCA graduate will have received a variety of skills such as general housekeeping and food preparation, auto and home maintenance, retail, basic office proficiencies, and public relations. In addition, FCA has some unique opportunities for students to try their hand at pottery, graphic design, photography, on-air radio, professional baking, and horsemanship that open young people to endless possibilities. May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17

Rebecca and I always look forward to cooler How is the spiritual fire of temperatures so we can build a fire in our fireplace. your life right now? Are you

In fact, Maybe if you have never the first time Moses encountered God directly was asked God to enter your life, you do not know His in a burning bush. God also describes Himself as an comfort and love. all-consuming fire in reference to His Holy nature and judgment. Ultimately, it describes an overall idea of If you are a Christian, is your fire on auto piHis power, light, and ability as a cleansing agent to lot?

Back when I was a Boy Scout, we learned that three elements must be present to build a fire: Fuel (wood), Oxygen, and Heat. Remove any of those three and you do not have fire. Note: In 1952, the building that is now my office caught on fire and the remedy was to throw dynamite into the flames. When the dynamite exploded it pushed all the oxygen out (along with some of the building!) and extinguished the fire. (See pic)

to be watched, poked, and at the right time more wood added to stay hot. A good fire has to be tended. Does your spiritual life need to be stoked? If so, get back in His Word; try reading a few verses each day. Think on them, pray, and this will help get your spiritual fire rekindled. The best fires start small and build over time and the hot coals help keep the heat. If you want to help others, if you truly want to encourage them in a real, deep way, the coals of your life will help motivate and equip you to do it, even on the coldest of days.

In some ways, fire is similar to our relationship with Jesus Christ. Daily reading of His Word and prayer fuels the fire of our relationship to Him. In turn, through that relationship, we have the oxygen needed to face the day. When our schedules or routines change (like over the holidays), our time with God might be postponed or even put on hold. When that happens, we can actually feel the coldness begin. For me, when I have those days coupled together without quiet time with Him, I feel the pressures of the world creeping in. Those are the days my flesh can get the best of me with its selfish desires.

When Our Hearts are Cool toward God, It Is NEVER that He Has Moved Away from Us—It is ALWAYS that We Have Moved Away from Him If you are cold, I want to encourage you today to ask God to show Himself to you. Allow yourself some quiet time alone to just sit and talk with Him. Tell Him your heart’s burdens and allow Him to meet with you and minister to your soul. By doing this, you are asking Him to do something He wants to do—to have a personal relationship with you.

Be Prepared

Fire produces heat. The farther we move away from it, the cooler we become. This is true in our relationship to God as well. Missing church, Bible reading, and Christian fellowship can all contribute to coldness toward God. It is no coincidence that when our hearts are cold in relationship to Him, our hearts will also be cold toward the need of others making it easy for us to become selfish.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.—Matthew 11:28-30

Life Coaching Young People

The FCA Life Coaching Program was developed with the goal to consistently provide deliberate mentoring during a young person’s junior year in high school through their completion of FCA and beyond. Staff members have stepped forward to go through a voluntary twelve-hour training program with continued education throughout the year. Currently there are fifty-one coaches that are working with at least one student from the classes of 2020 and 2021. Students are intentionally paired with an adult staff member to coach them individually about their unique personality assessment, personal strengths and weaknesses, develop a life purpose statement, and set short-term and long-term goals. Life coaches follow the students after high school to the next phase of life providing relational continuity and accountability.  Life coaches and students spent approximately 905 hours together in 2019 building relationships and strengthening young lives! v

Horse Program at FCA Geared toward teaching young people horsemanship, responsibility, and teamwork, the horse ministry at French Camp Academy seeks to challenge some of the faulty beliefs students have of themselves and of God. Young people learn how to approach, ride, groom, and care for the horses. In the process, our students learn that their behavior directly affects the horses, which directly correlates with life. Horses can serve to expose the character of our young people, which then provides teaching opportunities for character development. Students overcome fear, and develop godly character traits like gentleness, self-control, determination. Students who express interest in horsemanship must be trained by our certified staff. Once training is complete, students participate in weekly guided horse rides, and eventually participate in the overall care of our horses. Horses require special grooming and daily care which allows our students that participate in the horse crew to learn responsibility and putting others ahead of self. v Then God said, ‘ Let Us make man in Our own image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth’. Gen. 1:26

Dear Younger Me, On the days when you wonder if working hard is worth it, I want you to remember. There will be challenges, and you will get stronger as you push through them. Don’t give up when times get hard. There will be days when you don’t want to work, but learning to do the right thing even when you don’t feel like it will come in handy. Trust me on this. Don’t be afraid to jump in and help someone else in their work, because they may need the help and you may learn something you didn’t know. Stay thirsty for learning more. It will all come in handy in the future. Work is not always fun, but it is satisfying to see the finished product. You’ll learn things about yourself through the work that you do. At the same time, work can also help you take the focus off of yourself and onto helping others. And be on time, ready to get started. Every boss you will ever have will appreciate this. And, one day when you are a boss, you will appreciate it too. It’s going to turn out great!
