CounselorNew Staff

This will be Sam's 1st summer on staff at Ridgecrest. He heard about camp from Luke Beamer and Ben Schade at their college, Gardner Webb.

It's the 9th inning of the World Series, you're up to bat. What's your walk-up song?


If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

Tow Mater from cars. He's hilarious and super nice

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

A hot dog is not a sandwich. If you're being generous you could call it a mini sub, but it is not a sandwich. For me having the bread connected is the difference between it being a sandwich or not.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Im so excited for this summer and to be able to disciple campers and show them how amazing Jesus is through adventure.

What is your prayer for this summer?

This summer I am praying for camp to be a place where campers leave feeling closer and more connected to God than they did when they arrived. Im praying the Lord will help guide the counselors to give the campers a fun, exciting and adventurous time pursuing the Lord with friends.
