LOUISIANA BAPTIST YOUTH ENCAMPMENT
Director - Calvin W. Woods, Jr.
Curriculum Director - Rev. Joseph Garner
Camp President - Elijah Washington
The primary objective of the ministry is to encourage the study and memorization of key scriptures by youth at an early age. The memorization is encouraged through a series of tournaments staged across the state through which youth demonstrate bible knowledge as they have fun performing in skits, liturgical dances, talent, and many other activities. The purpose of the tournaments is bible memorization and familiarization. We are aware that simple memorization of scripture does not change people but it is the first step in discipleship, which is the aim of the ministry
The ministry provides a program of training for church youth leaders, curriculum materials for youth departments, and a year round program schedule which includes bible based tournaments, retreats, musicals and other gatherings
