THEME


 

This year, our camp theme is MAKE YOUR MARK. As Christians, we believe in the transformative impact of the gospel—its ability to imprint itself upon us and leave us different than we were before. We are marked by God, and God works in all of us differently. We are all canvases composed of different brush strokes, lines, marks, and colors.  When you come to New Orleans to serve, you are bringing something new and unique that no one else can bring: yourself. You are bringing your marks and your experiences. You are bringing the very unique canvas on which God is at work. Missions is not all about you and me, but God has chosen to give us a very specific responsibility—to proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.  The mark you make will reflect your heart. Come with hearts turned toward the gospel, and that is what you will leave behind.

Are you ready to make your mark?

THE PROGRAM

WORSHIP

When we worship Jesus, we bring everything we’ve got. The entire MissionLab experience is based on worshipping our God through song, through service, and through the ministry of the Word in preaching and group study times. Our large group gatherings are led by a worship band and feature full production that creates an exciting environment where we celebrate and make a really big deal of Jesus.

The most important part of our group gatherings is the preaching of God’s Word. We will be challenged by relevant, engaging Bible teaching that leads us all into a deeper walk with Christ. One of the greatest things about being at MissionLab is witnessing participants of all ages experience and respond to the Gospel in salvation and true commitment. Every week they see lives radically transformed by the Gospel as bystanders are turned into worshipers of the living God. 

HOUSING, MEALS, AND ENTERTAINMENT

MissionLab is hosted on the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary campus – a beautiful and convenient place to stay, eat and experience our city. Their program features on-campus housing in either dormitory or hotel-style accommodations which are both clean and safe. They also have campus recreation facilities available to all of our participants, which are perfect for a fun night of fellowship. Being in New Orleans, we love good food and take it quite seriously. The cafeteria on campus is served by a great staff of New Orleanians who really know how to cook and show you New Orleans flavor and southern hospitality during breakfast and dinner. Part of the MissionLab package is a bagged lunch that the students will enjoy at their off-campus site.
