Announcing Our Speaker and Worship Band for ASCENT 2024

We are thrilled to announce our speaker and worship band for our upcoming national camp for high school students, ASCENT. This year, we have the privilege of hosting Justin McRoberts, a renowned author, coach, speaker, and songwriter, and Wonderstate, a high-energy worship band hailing from Minneapolis.  Both will be at our new camp location of Camp W.O.W. in Stuart, Oklahoma.

Meet Justin McRoberts
