""It's really exciting to see the impact one week of camp has had on the rest of the year.""

April 15, 2019

Each summer for three years, I’ve made awesome connections with Turtle Mountain Bible Camp campers. However, it wasn’t until this past summer I realized the importance of maintaining these relationships throughout the year.

During my first year of cabin leading, I really connected with a girl and each summer was able to build on that relationship.

Strategic ministry partnerships are valuable to the AGC. Our partnership with One Hope Canada has been a blessing as we have welcomed four churches into the AGC family and anticipate eight more in the near future. The AGC’s vision is to be a movement of healthy, reproducing churches.

AGC sees reproduction in several ways—in new church plants, daughter works from existing churches, multi-site churches, or partnerships with like-minded ministries such as One Hope...
