“We talk about how kids are the church of tomorrow, but they’re really the church of today,” said Phil Thompson, director of Harding’s Center for Preaching. “We want to serve the church by teaching young people and sending them home more prepared to lead.” The campers gather for a prayer after hearing a presentation by Noel Whitlock, preaching minister for the College Church of Christ in Searcy, Ark.
