Camp Anthem | Leadership & Logistics

We are very excited to continue our phased rollout of our kid’s ministry on Sunday mornings, now known as Camp Anthem. To further update our congregation regarding this important ministry, today we want to provide you with information regarding the ministry leadership and logistics.


As any ministry is resurrected and restarted in this current stage of life at our church, leadership and accountability are of the utmost importance. With this in mind, the elders are delighted to instill and promote our very own Faith Coleman as the Ministry Lead for Camp Anthem. In addition to years of close experience with Anthem Kids, for the past few years Faith has gained invaluable experience as the Assistant Camp Director for Marinwood Parks and Recreation’s After School Childcare Program and Summer Camps. She has countless hours of involvement with children, is Red Cross CPR Certified for the Professional Rescuer and Red Cross Standard First Aid, and as an added bonus has received the vaccine against COVID-19. Faith will be the primary facilitator and authority for Camp Anthem on Sunday mornings and will report to Paden Rourk (Lead Deacon of Operations) directly and to the elders indirectly.

Faith is a homegrown volunteer and servant. As someone who also grew up in this church, I (Andrew) can attest that serving in a leadership role in your home church can have its challenges. It can be hard to step into a role of authority over those who were once your own authorities, teachers, and parents in the faith. However, Scripture clearly calls us to treat one another with honor (Romans 12:10), no matter our age (1 Timothy 5:1-2). In light of this, please regard Faith as the sister she is, honoring her, her work, and her experience as she leads in this way. Also, please be sure to thank her; she is stepping into a vital role at a critical time in the life of our church, and we are very grateful for her sacrifice and service to our children and to our church at large.


Starting this Sunday, the check-in process will look different than it did last week. Please be advised of the following changes:

1. If you plan on utilizing Camp Anthem for your children, please arrive at 9:45am to provide ample time for both kids check-in and your own check-in and seating.
2. Once in the parking lot, please follow the signage down the hill and downstairs to Camp Anthem. Volunteers will meet you there and walk your family through the check-in process.
3. Once the gathering has concluded, please promptly retrieve your kids from Camp; they will not be brought back upstairs by volunteers.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Faith (

See you this Sunday at Camp Anthem!
