SD Summer Camps

Official Camp Site

Summer Camp is one of those highlights of the year for most kids. One dad said, “It’s the one thing that I know my girls will like.” He continued, “They ask me months before the deadline to make sure I have them registered.”

A youth pastor wrote, “I let our students share what God did in there lives at camp this Sunday and it totally impacted our group. Not only did they share but their heart after worship changed the atmosphere of the night. Thank you could not say enough.” learn more...

Speed the Light

It’s exciting to be a part of something that is making a difference. Speed the Light has been providing transportation and equipment for missionaries since 1944.

The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the “essential transportation and creative communication” equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, the printed word, and equipment for mass evangelism, our missionaries can better fulfill the Great Commission.

Youth Missions Trips

Every teenager should have a short term missions experience before they graduate from High School. That is why we provide opportunities each summer for teens to experience missions. Why are these trips so important? In addition to being a part of fulfilling the great commission, they will grow in their faith, become more grateful and humble, and see God work in ways they may have never seen before. learn more...

College Scholarships

The choice of where to get a college education is one of the most important decisions a teenager can make. Many times this will affect the amount of debt they begin their adult life with, whom they will marry, and how they will spend the bulk of their adult years.

We hope you will consider receiving your education at one of the Accredited Assemblies of God colleges or universities. The sd|yce department is pleased to make available $2,000 in scholarships each year. learn more...

Youth Alive

It is common to think of missionaries as adults who have been through college and language school. Yet when we only enlist adults we sell ourselves short, and rob the students of their opportunity to become a missionary right where they are. Youth Alive harnesses the power of teenagers on the campus to make a positive difference and reach the lost. learn more...
