    About The Speaker - Russ Grinter

    Russ grew up on a farm where he planted lots of wheat, barley and canola - and now he lives in the city of Bendigo where he is planting the gospel in people’s lives. Russ grew up in a youth group of 5 teenagers, and has a heart for connecting regional youth to Christ and His church. He loves Jesus, cherishes his wife Aimee and their three kids Knox, Wesley & Chloe; and is passionate about making disciples and making leaders. Russ loves to read, write and talk and talk and talk. For a bit of extra fun Russ enjoys eating hot dogs, kicking a rugby ball, and playing Farming Simulator on his second-hand X-Box One.

    About The Topic - What is the Gospel?

    In a world of bad news, the gospel is good news. The gospel is a declaration of what God has done to save sinners through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The gospel is simple, profound and different to every other message you could hear. The gospel is a message that needs to be heard, believed and proclaimed. The gospel is the good news we’ve all been waiting for. This year at West Camp we will see what the gospel is and what the gospel is not. On this weekend we’ll see how the gospel makes all the difference to your life now, and forever.



    About Your Convenors - Jesse & Naomi Crabb

    We are both Presbyterian Minister's children. Going on Christian camps had a huge impact on both of us. Camps helped us grow in our Christian faith and knowledge. They also helped the spark that led to our marriage. We now live in a small town north of Ballarat, with our two children (who will be on camp) and an array of animals (which will not). We attend Daylesford Presbyterian Church.

    What To Bring

    Bible & pens; drink bottle; appropriate clothing (including sunhat, t-shirts & shorts for pool); old clothes for messy activities; bath towel & toiletries; your own pillow (Norval Lodge no longer providing), sleeping bag/doona; money for bookstall & merchandise and a 'Safari' themed costume for dinner.
