Faith Week 2019

WHAT MAKES A HERO? OVERVIEW

WHAT MAKES A HERO?
Hebrews 11:33

This Faith Week, we are going to dive deep into this question and its answer. Each student will learn the evidence of faith in Jesus and be taught how to stand strong in this hour empowered by the Truth of who He really is.

Our speakers this year include Brandon Friebe and Mark Griffith, and worship leaders Stephen and Mary Duncan with the Worship Coalition. The cost for the camp is just $260 per student.

Throughout this power-packed time, your students will enjoy passionate and relevant worship, challenging Bible teaching, individual church times, breakout sessions, team recreations, and waterfront and swimming and all the amenities of Camp Wow. We pray that your group of students will leave Faith Week with an encounter with God, ready to go back to their homes and school empowered to make a difference for God's Kingdom.

Join Us at Faith Week!

Brandon Friebe

Brandon has served as Assistant Pastor at Faith Family church in Fayette, Missouri since 2015. Before the he served as a student pastor and worship pastor at Destiny Church in Republic, Missouri. Before surrendering to the call of full-time ministry, Brandon taught High School Social Studies and coached High School Boys basketball for 13 years. In 2015 Brandon and his family surrendered to the call to minister in small, rural American communities. He passionately believes that every small, rural, farming community in America needs a life-giving church.

Brandon graduated from Southwest Baptist University in 2002 and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Pastoral Ministry with an emphasis in Church Leadership. Brandon, his wife Stephanie, and their two children – Kaleb and Kayleigh live on a small farm in rural central Missouri just outside of Fayette.

Brandon is an avid bow hunter and enjoys anything that involves hunting, fishing, and the outdoors. He and his family enjoy riding horses and spending time together travelling when they have the opportunity. This will be Brandon’s forth year at FaithWeek and has become very passionate in seeing students encounter Jesus every summer.

Since being in Missouri, he and his wife Abigail were married and stepped into full time ministry. They are currently youth pastors and have a passion for doing ministry together. In their spare time, they both pretend to be professional crossfitters - she’s a little closer than him. Their greatest desire is to love God and love people!

Stephen Duncan

Stephen spent over 5 years in the Christian music industry where he worked with hit songwriters, Seth Mosley (Grammy award winning and Billboard Christian’s #1 producer and writer of 2014), Jason Gray, Aaron Shust, and Unspoken. He was responsible for getting more than 500 songs recorded and was a part of the Centricity Publishing team that was awarded publisher of the year honors from SESAC for 2014. He also toured with Christian singer/songwriters Matthew West and Jonny Diaz.

Stephen is best known for envisioning and launching Centric Worship and was a part of developing worship songwriters: Lauren Daigle and Corey Voss. Since Centric Worship, he has devoted all of his time to traveling the country with his wife, Mary Elise, consulting with churches on worship and Ministry Action Plans, and helping churches become healthy in ministry and leadership.

Mary Duncan

Mary Duncan was born and raised in Defiance, OH. She has been involved in worship ministry for 14 years and toured the country as a Christian recording artist for the past 4 years.

Mary is known for her innovative and personal approach to building women’s ministries and training youth and adults in worship leading. At Gateway Church in Franklin, TN, Mary and Stephen took an all adult lead youth service and trained a generation of youth to take over the service completely (from worship leading and pro-presenter, to Planning Center, lighting and sound). She is passionate about helping churches cast vision and find freedom in Christ. While partnering with churches all over the world, Mary wants them to know, “My role is to help draw the local church in to deeper worship, and to urge the church to continue pressing into their God given gifts with a renewed confidence and boldness.”

In July of 2017 Mary and Stephen welcomed their daughter Charlie Rachelle Duncan into the world! Currently, Mary, alongside her husband Stephen, resides in Republic, MO and is active as a Lead Church Consultant with The Worship Coalition.
