Meet the Speaker

Steve Jones grew up as a country boy in Colac who came to know Jesus at age 18. Since then he has fallen in love with Jesus and his gospel message of grace and hope. Steve is blessed to be married since 2005 to the ever patient Martina and together they are raising their four noisy kids. Steve has been serving as one of the pastors at Drouin Presbyterian church for the past 5 years. At Summer Camp he'll be opening up Ecclesiastes, the most contemporary book in the bible, to discover where true meaning is found in a seemingly meaningless world.

Meet the Convenor

Laura is from Geelong and attends and serves at North Geelong Presbyterian church along with her husband Luke. She does admin with different Christian organisations that help God's kingdom grow through planting new churches, strengthening existing churches, and training new leaders. Laura loves everything PYV and has attended nearly every camp since 2015. She loves the opportunity to help youth and leaders learn more about God and our relationship with Him while building relationships with each other and having fun. Summer Camp is going to be great, and she can't wait to see everyone together there (especially in medieval garb on the final night)!
