February 17- 24, Campion held its third annual Wildfire, a student-led evangelistic series covering topics such as the Sabbath, what happens when we die, and heaven. Each night began with student-led praise songs, a welcome, prayer time and introduction, and then a wonderful sermon. Junior Lauren Fry really enjoyed the whole process, “I was blessed by this year’s Wildfire by the music, speakers, and people coming together to praise God.”
The series was held at the Loveland church, which allowed for a close-knit family feeling. “Sitting there every night next to my friends and listening to my peers preach made me feel happy and like a family,” said senior Jacey Johnson.
Throughout the series, student presenters made several appeals and two calls for baptism. Junior Kelby Eickmann was especially impressed by the call and those who responded. “It was inspiring; it was cool to see how people became brave and went outside of their comfort zone because that’s how much they wanted Jesus.”
Wildfire is always something students, teachers, and parents look forward to. We can't wait to see what next year’s Wildfire will bring!
