CHRISTSANITY GC LOGO DATE SPEAKER: PTR JESSE DEDEL LOGO PNC ADDRESS
Message from the Pastors:
Message from the Pastors: Pastor Jordan Dear Campers, thank you and congratulations for making it to this camp! Da best talaga toh during summer! You see, almost 15 years ago I attended my first camp and came out with “CHRIST-SANITY”. As you can see in my life, this was no ordinary craze because this is a lifetime one. Ever since I went to camp, I no longer live, but Christ lives in me! Being identified with Christ is awesome and to be called crazy by this world because of this doesn’t really make you crazy, but blessed! Jesus said “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.”(Matthew 5:11) Kaya dito na magpakacrazy sa LORD! Have fun in the program, meeting new friends and most of all expriencing JESUS! I pray this will be our best yet! God bless you Love, PJ
Message from the Pastors: Pastor Sam Lahat ng tao may kinalolokohan..mapa-sports, banda, sayaw, artista, etc. lahat may kinababaliwan.. Ang malungkot na katotohanan nga lang ay ang pansamantalang katatayayuan ng lahat ng kinababaliwang ito... Sa camp naâ€™to matututunan nating subukan ibaling ang kabaliwang ito sa manlilikhang nagmamahal.. Kaming mga lingkod ng diyos ay minsan ding naghanap ng kababaliwang bagay tulad ninyo. Makailang ulit pa ngang nagpapalit-palit ngunit humantong din sa wala! Tanging kay Kristo Hesus lang namin nahanap ang tunay na ligaya.. Bakit di mo subukan ang Christsanity? Walang mawawala sayo..
Message from the Camp Director Camp director: Reggie Candano Waz up dude!!! I praise God for allowing us to have a summer camp this year. I could still remember that I was 13 years old when I first joined youth camps and I have never imagined that God will use me in His ministry, big time! From once an attendee to a frontliner, a member to a cell group leader, and yes, from a camper to a camp director. Everything is for His glory. As we enjoy learning and building friendships, I pray for Godâ€™s message to deal on each and every one of us â€“ to stand and be firm with our faith and to live through His identity. I challenge every camper, GenConer and most especially the first timers to be more open in knowing and loving Jesus. For indeed, a life lived for Him is never a waste, never a regret. So, letâ€™s get it on! God bless!

DEVOTION DAY 1
“20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20” CAMP THEME VERSE Day 1: Who Am I? Identifying yourself. As a leader: We must identify our role into the group to lead them into a conversation and exploration about themselves, hopefully bringing up any noteworthy details on your team members life in their Christian life. Keynotes: (these questions can be used to spark a conversation on your devotions) We are made into God’s likeness. But we choose to still what we decide what we are to be. How do we Identify ourselves? What do we do? What do we want? What are the things that we put value? Who we are is what we do. Remember what apostle Paul said in Romans 7:15” I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.” What do I stand for? What is my belief as a Christian in these
trying times? What it is really mean to me when I identify myself as a Christian? Can you sight some true difference when you we’re still in darkness? Devotion: What we are is what we do. But in reality, we identify ourselves with each other. We Identify on what the culture does, act, or what is the current trend. Apostle Paul tells us that we are always in a battlefield in our decisions. We do what we don’t want to do, but we still choose to become Christ-like. What it really means to be dead to ourselves mean to get up every day and intentionally be dead to our own selfish ways, our selfish desires and start living for the will of God and for the betterment of others. We pattern our life to Christ’s example as it fits in to our own unique life. Where should we start knowing is how we are before. We make use of what we used to be and start of there. We know and identify that our weakness before starts to become our own ministry to help others know Christ’s in their weaknesses. Make it happen!: It’s a time for everybody to put into prayer and action what they have learned for this devotion. Each member is encouraged to verbally say a commitment to God so that others can help pray for them. Make it really simple: For example think of One word that you would fit your identity in Christ and commit on that word that describes your identity or defines you being a Christian.
DEVOTION DAY 2
As a leader: We are to be the ambassador of Christ in our group. Even in between or before our Devotion in this camp, we must imitate Christ as we lead these young people. Be focused and Patient. As we are to be leaders, we must learn to be a follower. It is always better to start a fire of believers in lighting even a one candle. Keynotes: (these questions can be used to spark a conversation on your devotions) Who is Christ? What do you personally think of Him being your friend? Your personal savior? Your loving Lord? Your merciful Judge? Your mentor? How did Jesus started? How did the Prophets tell about the coming of Jesus Christ? Devotion: Christianity started in the person and life of our Lord Jesus Christ! Christ being fully human and fully God all in One is nothing that we can fathom. As we Identify ourselves, we also identify Christ as we know Him more by reading His Word, by constant prayer and communication with God and listening closely to what the Holy Spirit tells us. Let us remember what Jesus did for us in the Cross. He did that even before we are still sinners. We set our hardships as a way of Identifying on what He did in the Calvary. We lead by the example of Christ, even being persecuted on his town, still pursued His ministry. We
look at Christ as the One who remediates before our sins to God. We set our example of reconciliation on how Christ deals with every race, may it be a Gentile, the Samaritan woman, or a Jew. Apostle paul points this out on how Cephas treats Gentiles when he is surrounded by fellow Jews. (see the context of Galatians 2 v 11) We lead by the same Spirit as Christ walked into this Earth two thousand years ago. It is very timely for a Christian to stand in between the gaps of growing youth culture that thinks of Jesus as a religion but as a way of life that is above every culture. Make it happen!: How is your life when you look at the example of Christ? We pray for the saving grace of God to conquer those members who are still in the darkness. And we should pray for continuing cleansing of sanctifying our brothers and sisters in Christ that are in the journey of Christlikeness.
DEVOTION DAY 3
As a leader: At this day, we must have experienced a lot through the games, team building, trust development and communicating with our team members, we all know that camp is about to end but make it sure that no one else would be stuck in the hype of camp. A good camper is a person who brings the camp into his/her real world, being equipped on his newly found love (for first timers) or as revived Christian set on a battlefield on the world out there. Keynotes: (these questions can be used to spark a conversation on your devotions) We are considered as a light of the world and a salt to this decaying world. We are to stand for Christ name by all means. As ambassadors of Christ, we are to be identified in our own environment. May it be you are in school as a student, or a daughter/son in your family, or at Work, or even here on our country, we stand before the world not just proclaiming the Good News of Christ but also as to set an example of His servant leadership. Devotion: â€œ20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20â€? Now that we learn, who we are, and who really Christ is, we are to make a stand for what He has done. In this world. As Christ
becomes our mediator before God, we are to be cleansed and used for His Glory. We think of ourselves as unworthy, but in our weakness, God puts up our own dignity and strength. What are we here for? The old self that we encountered before is no longer living in your deeds, in our lifestyle, we choose life over the death. When apostle Paul said we have been crucified with Christ, the power of Cross nails in our own struggles, and flaws and just like Jesus, we identify ourselves as we are raised from the dead by leaving those sins behind and nailing it to Cross. We are to use our newly found life for a greater purpose, a ministry is more like a lifestyle of purposeful journey. May it be the usual ministries in church that you can join and have passion for, or better yet, start on what you are really passionate for, and use it a channel to make Christ known. Make it happen!: How are we known by the people that surrounds us? How are we living the way God wants us to enjoy? We are the salt and light of this world, and through Christ we are raised from death to His unending Glory. Join in prayer those who are returning to their own cultures and environment. Make it a point that a member knows and identifies the potential struggles that he/she may encounter after the camp. Equip each member so as they know how to strive for Christlikeness into tough decisions or situations.
