disembarked Sunday from a weekend trip that had an aim to inspire youth for Christ.

More than 245 young people, of which 190 were junior high and high school students in grades seven through 12,

spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Camp Lee in Anniston on a camping trip complete with ziplines and inflatables with the theme, &8220;More of You, Less of Me,&8221; according to Bob Frazer, minister of students and education for Elkdale Baptist Church.

The theme was based on the Bible scripture John 3:30, which in the New American Standard Bible reads, &8220;He must increase, but I must decrease.&8221;

The event was community-wide, with various churches within different denominations participating,

and was spearheaded by youth ministers and other people in the community.

The trip consisted of &8220;breakout

sessions,&8221; similar to seminars, and several worship sessions, Frazer said.

Public speaker Steve Boston was a guest during the camp, and the band Encounter

of Grace Campus Ministries from Auburn performed.

For Brittany Troha, 13, a member of Crosspoint Christian Church as well, attending the camp was a new, and eye-opening experience.
