In the early 1970’s God put a burden for youth on the heart of a young minster and his wife, Brother Mike and Sister Joyce Severt. The burden was not simply to get youth in church, but a desire for young people of all ages to have a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ; a relationship that would change their lives and keep them through life’s storms. This burden evolved into the first Believers Youth Camp (BYC) in 1980 with several pastors and a small group of young people from central Ohio and Indiana, and has since grown to touch lives across the United States and around the world.
Forty years later, we still firmly believe that our youth desperately need that life changing relationship with Christ now more than ever. Believers Youth Camp strives to staff each year’s camp with leaders and ministry that share this same burden.
BYC also recognizes that there are many young Believers that are daily striving to serve the Lord in their local church and we desire to provide an atmosphere that encourages, renews, and strengthens their walk with the Lord.
The Word of God tells us in 1st Corinthians 15:33 that “evil communications corrupt good manners.” Most translations state that “evil companionships corrupt good morals”. Therefore it is essential that we surround our youth with other Believers. Every young person will inevitably develop peer relationships either in school, their neighborhood, or church; youth camp is an excellent opportunity for developing godly associates.
BYC believes that every young person should have the opportunity to “come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:” Ephesians 4:13. It’s not just our goal, but our burden.
