What is PaceSetters?
PaceSetters is a camp for High school students which is held annually at Focus Pointe Base Camp in Alba, TX and is organized and led by Glowing Heart Ministries. Students who attend this camp are introduced and taught about what it means to be a servant leader. This training is done through personal Bible study, small groups, and through a variety of service projects throughout the week.
The heart of PaceSetters is helping youth understand the concept of servant leadership by examining the life of Christ and then applying that model to their own lives. By understanding and applying the concept of a servant leader, students are able to make an eternal difference in the lives of their friends, family, and community.
What is a servant?
A servant is someone who gives their life away. God wants to liberate us from the preoccupation with ourselves so that we can focus on loving other people. When we serve God by helping others, we discover the secret of life! “When you lose your life for my sake.” Jesus says, “You will find it” (Matthew 10:39).
As we develop the heart of a servant, we will experience a richness of life we never before dreamed possible. Are you willing to serve?
What is a leader?
A leader is not necessarily someone with a title or position. A leader is someone with vision and influence. God wants to use you to make a significant and eternal difference in the lives of others. True leadership begins with the heart.God is calling us to purity of heart.
Leaders are great, not because of their power but because of their ability to empower others. True leaders serve, encourage, and inspire others to fulfill their God-given potential. Are you willing to lead?
What is your response?
Since PaceSetters began, the response has always been, “Our lives are not our own!” (1 Cor. 6:19-20). We’ve discovered that when we give ourselves wholeheartedly to the Lord, He is most able to use us to advance His Kingdom. You may be asking yourself, “Isn’t this a little deep for a summer camp?”
But, as we mature in our faith the Lord urges us to move on from milk to solid food! Make plans NOW to attend PaceSetters and prepare yourself to impact your home, youth group, school, community, and world for the gospel.
