National Conference: OBX Campout
Published: Fri May 5, 2023
I found out about Christian Surfers through Grace Community Church when I reached out for some answers to questions I had. They put me in contact with Kyle Sullivan in Wrightsville Beach and since then I’ve been looking for an opportunity to get involved. When I saw the OBX camp out through social media, I knew this was a great chance at fellowship and worship while enjoying God’s creation.
Daily, we’d wake up before sunrise in search of waves and after a couple hour session we’d regroup for lunch and our breakout sessions. Everything, from sharing the gospel with a surfer to the future of surfing, was covered in multiple breakout sessions and it was a great time for continued fellowship and networking with people from all over the country and even Peru. The whole camp (about 140 people) would gather together for dinner where you could find conversations about anything which was a great opportunity to meet new people. The staff did a great job at providing good food for everyone with plenty left over.
After dinner we worshiped around the camp’s fire pit and enjoyed games hosted by the CS leadership. On Sunday we attended the church across from the campground which had a great message and welcomed CS with open arms. I took something away from every single message given and I think everyone saw God moving in one way or another. I walked away feeling way more secure in my walk and with a ton of new contacts. The campout was a great opportunity for me to focus solely on God and fellowship with like minded people. 10/10 recommend
