Come and Enjoy a Timely and
Powerful Camp Meeting
in a Peaceful Setting
Regarding our theme:
Accountability touches everything we are and do; it impacts every area of life, and its absence contributes to broken homes, unethical business practices, confused children, unhealthful lifestyles, spiritual lukewarmness, and inconsistent and questionable leadership. Accountability keeps us grounded, and helps us to be a true friend to the people in our lives, by way of exhortation.
Our speakers this year will lead us to a better understanding and application of accountability in the areas of youth/singles, parenting, business/professional, health and wellness, interpersonal exhortation, and leadership.
They will address the above in light of the following:
* What Jesus Christ is doing for us in the heavenly sanctuary
* Our baptismal vows
* The imminent return of our Lord
* The Gospel commission
* Prophetic guidance
The Lord brought Dwayne Lemon out of the darkness of a life of entertainment in the Hip-Hop and R & B culture as a professional dancer and choreographer in such a time as this to become a humble participant in bearing the light of God's love in His local vineyard of Atlanta, GA.
More than anything else, Elder Lemon desires to make those who are young in age and youthful in their experience aware that you can have a very real, happy and fulfilling relationship with Jesus Christ and truly live a life that is totally surrendered to Him. He believes the heavenly combination of the Medical Missionary Work connected with the message of the Three Angels in its practical sense, will be the key to help us to prepare to meet our God.
Along with Elder Lemon is his lovely wife and best friend, Alexandra. They have four gifts from God: Jahred, Kayla, Kaleb and Jada. Together, Elder Lemon and his family want to encourage families, couples, and individuals to know that they have a part to play in finishing the work in this generation.
