Students from Campion Academy, Mile High Academy and College View Academy spent three days getting to know God more at the Greater Summit Youth Conference held at Glacier View Ranch this past weekend.
A group of seven Campion students, assembled by Chaplain Carlos Santana, led out in the event as the praise team.
Campion’s Director of Recruiting, Jessica Rios was the speaker for the weekend with the theme “Elevate” based on John 12:32.
Rios commented, “The students attending were so much fun to be around. Super open-minded, gracious, attentive, and the music team was so inspirational. I think they had almost everyone singing and clapping. They brought a worshipful mood to the audience and put everyone in the mindset of receiving the word. I was so blessed to be there. The testimonies from the students were refreshing to hear. Overall, I believe God poured His Spirit on those attending!”
Geraldy Marvel, senior, shared, “I had the opportunity to go to GVR and had an amazing experience. What stood out to me the most was the message Jessica gave about how God can mend the broken, which was very uplifting to me. We went to GVR to sing with the people there with the purpose to praise God, and it was so great seeing the happy faces everyone had.”
Besides the seminars, the youth had the opportunity to take part in winter-camp activities, such as snow-tubing and blanket-making. They also enjoyed their free time hanging out with friends, bonding among themselves, and meeting new people.
“Even though not many people from Campion came, the group I went with was so very fun. We were able to praise God through all the singing we were responsible for, but also get to know each other a little bit more. I’d say overall it was a great weekend,” junior Chrishella Kalawo mentioned.
