Bigstuf – June 25 – July 1, 2o2oRegister here
We’re going Bigstuf! Next summer we are loading the big bus and taking as many youth as we can to Bigstuf Camp in Panama City Beach, FL. At Bigstuf students will experience a camp like no other. Between the beach, the pools, basketball and tennis courts, group volleyball and spike ball tournaments, and much more, there are so many activities for students to enjoy with their friends. Most importantly students are placed in a relevant, high-energy environment where they will encounter God in a way that meets them where they are. Wherever your student is on their spiritual journey, Bigstuf will not disappoint and will send them back home with a desire to hold onto God in their everyday life.

How to Read This
First, don’t let this graphic intimidate you. The main thing I want you to take away from this is that we are partnering with you to take your child somewhere—we have a strategy. We have a mission and goals for each child who walks through our doors. This map is a broad overview—the big picture—of where your child is headed at Downtown and how they will get there. You can read more about that below under About Our Family Ministry Map. My hope is that this map will be a tool that will keep all of us on the same page as we partner together to disciple our children at Downtown.
– Cameron Bibb, Downtown Family Pastor
About Our Family Ministry Map
When you set out to travel to a destination you need a map to get you there. Otherwise you might spend a lot of wasted time going down dead ends and taking the long way. At Downtown we want you to know that we are intentional about where we take your child on their journey of discipleship.
We want each child who journeys through our ministry to know they are loved by God and that they are created in the image of God. We want them to love God with all their being and to love their neighbor. We believe these emphases will give each child, kid, youth, student a better future, one that is full and lived not just for themselves but for God and others. Our curriculum and structure enables us to communicate and actualize our mission and goals according to the current developmental phase of each child in order to leverage the unique potential of each phase.
On the map you will see certain milestones: baptism, first day of school, Wonderfully Made, Confirmation, driver’s license, and graduation. These are significant points of celebration in your child’s life celebrated not only by your family but by your church family as well. We celebrate these milestone achievements with you.
