Week 1- Pastor Jory Trim and Robert Trice (info to come)
A Family Camp favorite, Pastor Jory Trim (right) is back for more solid and relevant teaching. Jory, a graduate of Liberty University, is the Youth Pastor at Trinity Baptist Church in Grand Rapids, MI. We’ve received nothing but positive feedback from Jory’s visits the pastfour years at Family Camp, and are excited to have him challenge the teens and families during Family Camp Week 2.
When he’s not working with teens, Pastor Jory is acting like one! He enjoys rock climbing, running, video games, and sports. He and his wife, Andrea have two beautiful children and two (not so beautiful) dogs!
Week 2 – Eric Verstraete, Teacher, Speaker & more, Grand Rapids, MI. & Dr. Bruce Moulton, Pastor, Retired Army CWO, Alabama
Eric works with the Pregnancy Resource Center and heads up the Willing to Wait program in the greater Grand Rapids area. He is passionate about teaching teens how to value themselves, which first comes from knowing that they have value from God. He is a gifted and energetic communicator and loves ripping into God’s Word! He will be teaching in general chapel sessions how to REJOICE, as well as specific training for parents on how to approach much-needed training and conversations when dealing with their kids and teens. He and his wife, Michelle, are currently raising six boys!
Dr. Bruce Moulton is a retired Army Officer with a burning passion to preach God’s Word! He is the lead Pastor at First Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. You will NOT fall asleep while Bruce is preaching, and he won’t let you sneak out the back either. We are honored to have Bruce and his wife and daughter, Breanna, join us for Week 2.
A native of Alabama, Pastor Bruce committed his life to Christ as young child and was later discipled at Emmanuel Baptist Church. He attended the University of Maryland, Western Seminary and his doctorate is from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
