Hey, parents! My name is Taylor “Fish Face” Jervis and I’m the Shores Camp Director. I’m originally from Nashville, and in my sophomore year at the University of Tennessee I googled “Christian summer camps” and ended up at Pine Cove in the summer of 2008 where God changed my life while working at the Ranch camp. That summer I decided I wanted to be in camping ministry, and eight years later here I am!

Thank you for entrusting us with your camper this week. We have been praying for them and for you for months.

Our Bible study this year at the Shores is titled FAITHWORKS. James 2 tells us that “faith without works is dead” and Scripture tells us that genuine faith produces good works. James is a letter written to early believers encouraging them to live lives of faithful obedience!

Each day at 9:30am, your camper will be reading and studying a chapter of James with their cabin. Would you commit to setting an alarm at that time each day to pray for your camper, the counselor, and their time in God’s Word?

We are so excited for your camper to be at the Shores this week and I’m praying that they grow and learn and have a ton of fun. Most importantly, I am praying that they get out of their daily routine and their daily context, away from distractions and temptation while getting to watch and learn from these godly college students as they live out their faith.
