2011 SOS Summer Staff

Week 1 of SOS is underway!  Last week was Staff Training Week for the 46 college and post-college aged men and women from 16 different states (pictured above are some Team Leaders learning roofing basics).  Though all of the summer staff are from different cities and different backgrounds, they all came to Memphis with one overarching purpose: to spend their summer glorifying God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.  Because of this united passion, Staff Training Week was an amazing week, and that has spilled over into the first couple of days of camp.

Here's what a couple of summer staff had to say about Staff Training Week:

"I never knew how quickly so many different people I met within a week could become family."  -Eric Peavy

"It's amazing to see how much SOS focuses on the centrality of the gospel."  -Ben Hoemann

Please pray for our summer staff as they spend their summer working long hours, sweating in the hot Memphis heat, getting little sleep, and bringing much glory to God as they proclaim the gospel in both word and deed.  Pray that the Lord will do a great work in them and also through them.
