Howdy! My name is Austin “Homestar Runner” Langemeier, and I am the camp director at Silverado. I am so excited to join with my staff in serving your child this week at camp. We have been praying in anticipation of the work that the Lord is going to do this summer in the hearts of our campers. Thank you for entrusting your camper with us this week.

I grew up as a camper at Pine Cove and spent all of my college summers on summer staff here. Camp allowed me year after year to be reminded of the truth that Christ died for me because he loves me. That no matter how hard life was or how unwanted or unloved I felt God always wants me and loves me for who I am. Praise the Lord!

Since getting married a few years ago to my beautiful wife Mel, we have settled into our new home in College Station, we now have a golden retriever named Nala, and had our first child in August of 2018, along with our second child being born in February of 2020. Needless to say, it’s been a few big years! My family and I have been praying over our campers and staff constantly. We are looking forward to a great week and a great summer!

This year’s bible study, called ‘Again & Again’, will provide campers with a set of stories about 5 different characters that help you to dig into the Christian story of the fall, redemption, and restoration of mankind. Campers will be learning about how each character cries out to God again, and again God is faithful to them. Our hope would be that as campers work and read through this study, God will give them a heart of humility so that they would want to cry out to God with their needs “again and again” and see God be faithful “again and again”.
