Paul and Hannah Morrison

After becoming a Christian in high school, Paul quickly decided to devote his life to ministry. Paul has served a total of nine years in student ministry alongside leadership at Fellowship Church, The Door Church and The Village Church. Above all, his greatest passion is to see the church thrive and know Jesus through the next generation. Paul holds his degree in Biblical Studies from Criswell Bible College.
In addition to students, Paul started a non-profit with a team of four in Dallas serving the DFW metroplex. Today, that ministry has provided over twenty churches with over forty local missions.  Over the last year and a half, Paul and his wife, Hannah, have led a weekly bible study for young adults, encouraging authentic biblical community. Married since February of 2014, Paul values his role as a husband above all else. He lives in McKinney with Hannah, and their son Knox.

You Belong at Camp

This summer, we’ll take dozens of 6th - 12th grade students to Lake Lavon, so they can hang out with some of their closest friends and experience the best week of the year.

Go to Camp

Roll out to camp with dozens of your closest friends, cool out by the pool, and spend some time learning from our pastors. Also bring sunscreen - definitely do that. In short, have the best week of your life at Camp, June 24-28. Tickets cover the cost of your stay, meals, accommodations and all camp activities. Students are encouraged to bring cash for camp store goodies and extra free time activities if they'd like to. Tickets are non-refundable, but the sooner you sign-up, the more money you'll save.

DATE                           COST

Dec. - April 1    |  $225 (Save $60!)

April 2 - June 2 |  $255 (Save $30!)

Payment Plans: To discuss a payment plan, email us at and we will contact you with next steps.

Send a Student

Your generosity can be the difference maker in a student’s life. When you give to the Camp Fund, you remove a major barrier to students hearing the Gospel and having their lives changed forever.

Serve at Camp

We have a 5 to 1 student to volunteer ratio. We care about students and want to ensure that every student has a fun and safe trip. Not only is Camp a life changing week for students, it’s a week of life change for the volunteers, too! If you're interested in serving at Camp, apply now.

Financial Assistance

Money shouldn’t be a barrier that prevents any student from attending Camp. We want to help. If you or a student you know could benefit from financial assistance, apply now.

Yes. For every five to ten students, there will be a volunteer room leader. This leader has been background checked and interviewed. Your student's room leader will be with your student at all times.

What is the role of a leader?

A Camp leader is the hands and feet of Jesus throughout the week to the students. A leader is on the front lines of ministry and cares for students by leading small group times, ensuring students' safety, being on time, and making sure students have the best week of their lives.

Can my student go if they are going to be in 6th grade Fall 2018?

Student camp will only be open to current 6th-12th grade students, but they are welcome to jump into the student ministry in the Fall!

If I just graduated high school, can I still attend the Camp?

Yes! Students who just graduated high school in May will be able to attend the Camp as seniors.

What do I do if there is an emergency while my child is at the Camp?

There will be an emergency phone line for you to call and get in contact with your student. You will find out more about this at the parent meeting on June 3rd.

As a parent, how do I find out more information?

We know you may have questions about your student going to Camp. As the time approaches, we'll host parent meetings to answer all of your questions. In the meantime, you can always email us at and we will be in touch.
