November 10th-12th and 17th-19th, 2017
Bring your youth group to Cedarkirk for a weekend of worship, outdoor exploration, and fellowship with other youth groups! This event is open to both middle- and high-school students and will incorporate large-group worship, small-group breakouts, and plenty of your youth’s favorite camp activities. Join us for either exciting weekend as we deepen our relationships with God and build community with new friends!
Keynote | Jimmy Steele

He currently serves as the Director of Youth and Family ministry at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Downtown Orlando. Prior to serving in Orlando, he served churches in Fort Myers Beach, Lakeland, and Winter Haven. He is an ordained ruling elder in the PCUSA and has been active in presbytery ministries wherever he has served. Jimmy was a former Cedarkirk Camp Board member and felt called to full time ministry while serving as a summer camp worship leader. Triennium, Montreat, Cedarkirk, and Great Escape are just a few of his favorite places to experience God’s presence with youth. In addition to his love of the ministry, he loves sports, “playing golf”, and traveling. Jimmy is married to Katie and they have a daughter, Hadley.
