"I've grown up with Jesus! I can't remember a time when I did not know him. I was raised going to church and my life has been a continual journey with my heavenly Father. I grew up in Rose Hill, KS and went to the Countryside Christian Church youth group in Wichita. I really enjoyed summer camps when I was a student. I became acquainted with King Solomon Camp after I started going to Manhattan Christian College. Now, I've been a part of the Camp for several years; I've taken my middle school youth to camp, served as a dean, been a part of camp planning, and seen God do amazing things. KSCC is a wonderful place where lives are impacted with the good news of Jesus! I'm the Middle School Minister at University Christian Church in Manhattan, KS. I have an amazing wife and two sweet little boys, all gifts from God!"

Hello, my name is Nate. I came to know the King around age 12, and it’s been one heck of an adventure! During my college years, the King called me into youth ministry. It’s a dangerous calling, on that I was hesitant to take, but I am pleased to say, youth ministry has become one of my favorite life adventures! It’s been over 10 years since my youth ministry adventure began and it has been awesome. If it’s the King’s will I plan on doing it until my adventure ends! In these last 10+ years many things have happened, but the most important are: I got married to my wife Kayla and have had two beautiful daughters—Liesl and Clementine.
My name is Mitch Myer and I am the Youth Minister at Tonganoxie Christian Church. I have been at TCC since October of 2016. I am a former camp intern for King Solomon Christian Camp and am excited to be bringing my own students to camp this summer. Camp is a special place where great spiritual growth can take place for students and adult leaders. Also, the community, fun, and food couldn't be any better! I will be a co-dean for high school camp and am looking forward to seeing God do amazing things in the hearts and minds of all the students who come! Hello, my name is Nate.
