SLANG DICTIONARY
“No Cap” [noh khap]
THE EXPRESSION NO CAP IS SLANG MEANING “NO LIE” OR “FOR REAL,” OFTEN USED TO EMPHASIZE SOMEONE IS NOT EXAGGERATING ABOUT SOMETHING HARD TO BELIEVE.

Facts, No Cap

Every day we decide who we are going to live for, what we are going to actively believe, and where we are going look for guidance. This summer is going to challenge you to evaluate and consider if those decisions you make everyday are built and strengthened on God’s Word. Do you truly believe you can build your life on Him? Do you truly believe you can take scripture as straight up truth, FACTS… NO CAP! Because of who God is and what Christ has done for us, we can KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt how we can have true life and allow our lives to rest upon that foundation. But the real question is, will we? In a world full of lies, who, what, where will YOU find Truth?

1 John 5:13
I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.

Speaker: Jesse Wyrick

Jesse Wyrick is the Youth Pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Windsor, Colorado. I am so excited to be a part of what God is doing in and around teenagers. I would love to introduce you to the Savior and life that has given me purpose, passion, and eternal pursuit. Let’s get to know Jesus Christ together through God’s Word, the Bible, and His people, the Church.

“I have been married to my wife Ashley (who currently has blue hair, but stand by for continuing changes) since 2009 and we have two kiddos Abby, 12, and Parker, 9. We also have a playful Boston Terrier, Phoebe, and a rather antisocial cat, Oakley. I am originally from a small town east of Kansas City, MO, and can’t believe God would let me serve His people in beautiful Colorado.
I’m excited to see you all at camp! Until we meet in person, know that I am praying for you!”

The Band: Mari Ramsey

Mari Ramsey was born and raised in Hopkinsville, KY. Growing up in a broken home, he always lacked the feeling of being loved. He grew up in church and believed in God all his life. But such a love was tested when he an his little brother were placed in foster care at the age of 14 and 9. What could have been a train-wreck, God used for his good. Mari’s foster-dad, within the first week of his placement had made a life changing decision to allow Mari to learn how to play his guitar. But that was only the beginning of this anointed musician. Mari is now a worship leader and youth minister who travels the country. He still leads worship at his home church, Bridge of Hope Fellowship in Hopkinsville, KY. When you hear him lead in worship and listen to him speak, it is evident that God strategically anointed him for the ministry he is in.

Nothing else like it…

Junior High students have the opportunity to unplug from electronic devices and busy schedules to focus on teamwork and communication while engaging in unique outdoor activities that challenge their limits.

Maranatha cabin leaders serve as excellent role models that help campers wrestle with faith questions and strengthen Biblical understanding. Campers in this age group will develop a clearer sense of how God has made them individually, allowing them to consider their identity in a critical time in their personal development as a Christ-follower.
