Staff Training Week 2011

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Every year, the 10 days of Staff Training Week are always some of my favorite…and this year was no different.  It is so fun to see thousands of godly college students converge on Kanakuk each May as they prepare their hearts and minds for the summer ahead.  

Here at K-Kountry, we are so blessed to have such an incredible staff who love the Lord, serve with everything they have, and love people like Jesus called us to do.  It’s amazing to see how the Lord unites our hearts and prepares us for the race set before us.  

For the past 10 days, we have been working diligently to get K-Kountry ready, going through massive amounts of training material, and spending intimate time digging into the Word and letting the Lord prepare our hearts.  And of course…we have laughed alot too.

Here are a few pictures from K-Kountry Staff Training Week:

New Friendships Abound…



Of course, doing lots of work around kamp….




American Idol finalist Tim Halprin and our good friend FEDEL were here in concert for the night…


We also took a day of Staff Training Week and bused the entire K-Kountry staff to Joplin to help out in the tornado relief effort.  It was an incredible day.  See next blog post for more.


The Sonic Sock-Hop is always a favorite…

We also invited our friends from the Southwest Missouri Squaredancers Association to come teach us how to squaredance.  Of course, there was plenty of watermelon and IBC Rootbeer too.


Before the Ho-Down, we had a little fun with some three-legged races….


Sitting around the campfire talking about “moments of wonder”…


And of course, lots of costumes and skit characters…

We finished Staff Training by spending some time praying over this special place known as K-Kountry…


God is so good and we are ready for Summer 2011.  Game on!
