Transforming the Next Generation and Beyond

"4 We will not hide these truths from our children; ​ we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. 5 For he issued his laws to Jacob; he gave his instructions to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, 6 so the next generation might know them—even the children not yet born—and they in turn will teach their own children." — Psalm 78:4-6, NLT

The Vision, Mission and 2025 Goal


The vision is transforming the next generation: today, tomorrow and forever. The mission is to introduce kids to Jesus Christ, help them grow in their faith and develop them into the next generation of leaders. Our 2025 goal is to maximize the impact of Clearwater Cove from 7,000 campers and leaders in 2020 to 16,000 campers and leaders in 2025.

Expected Outcome

For each decade that follows, 160,000 campers and leaders will experience the good news of the gospel, and will participate together in discipleship opportunities
