Jesus commands us to go out and make disciples. We must be bold in proclaiming the gospel. I really enjoyed my time at the Boardwalk Chapel and I was definitely strengthened and encouraged. I really hope I can come next year . . .
My wife, Natalie, and I joined the caravan of high-schoolers heading down to Wildwood, New Jersey. In God’s providence, our trip to the Boardwalk Chapel taught us not only about the youth group, but also about the value of short-term mission trips . . .
I (used to) have a very small, enclosed bubble of what I was comfortable doing and who I was comfortable talking to. Going on the trip would mean essentially popping that bubble and doing things far outside my comfort zone . . .
A Ministry Team is a church group that comes to the OPC’s Boardwalk Chapel in Wildwood, NJ, for a week at a time, from Saturday to Saturday, between mid-June and early September, to serve alongside the Full Time Volunteer Staff in carrying out the ministry of the Boardwalk Chapel . . .
In order to make their trip to the Boardwalk Chapel possible, there needed to be fundraising. It took some brainstorming and the question was raised, “What is a better way to fundraise than to replicate the boardwalk atmosphere and a Chapel service for the congregation…”
The opportunities for outreach in Wildwood are truly endless. With the Lord providing more manpower and increased resources each year, we hope to use the practical gifts we have been given to work harder for the kingdom of Jesus . . .
More than anything else, this summer at the Chapel was characterized by one word: prayer. We prayed more intentionally, regularly, spontaneously, and fervently than we did last summer or at any other time or place I have ever seen . . .
The words of a song can draw people in and bring them to a better understanding of Christ, but so can faces full of joy! When you see a young adult smiling, singing proudly, and worshipping Jesus on stage, you can tell that there is something different about him or her . . .
