I found this YouTube clip of the Seth Medley Band.  They are our band for the week at Carson Newman.

Fuge Day 3

Filed under: Dawson, student ministry — Tags: , — jodygambrell @ 10:49 pm


Another amazing day at Centrifuge.  We recognized our 8th graders during church group devotions tonight.  I’m really gonna miss these guys when they move up to the high school ministry next month.  They will always be special to me!

God continues to amaze and surprise me each day at camp.  Many students made decisions for Christ tonight during worship.  I wish you parents could see your students respond to God in worship.  You would be almost as proud of them as I am!

Caroline, if you are reading this, we miss you and we are lifting you and your family up in prayer!

Fuge Day 2

Day 2 is in the books.  Highlights…

  • Our students are getting settled into their Bible studies and connecting with students from other churches.
  • Our church group devotions have been great times to unpack the day’s highlights.
  • Worship has been very powerful and our students are responding.
  • Our middle schoolers are the youngest group at camp this week but they are setting the example for the older believers.
  • Camp food is camp food.
  • Sleep is something that we take for granted when we are back home.
  • I love my roommate Jeff Hindman, but I miss my girls back home (even though Jeff and Avery have the same hair).

Fuge Day 1

Filed under: Dawson, student ministry — Tags: , — jodygambrell @ 11:57 pm


The first day of Centrifuge is in the books.  We have 83 participants in camp this week.  We are by far the biggest (and youngest) group this week at Carson Newman College.  I would love to post more but it is late and my eyes are half open.  I will try to find time to give more updates tomorrow.  Continue to pray for us.
