SWO15 Breakouts: Zach Mabry
Zach leads the SWO worship band and also serves as a breakout teacher throughout our summer camp. He is deeply passionate about the faithful study of scripture, as well as teaching students to interact with others about the content of the Christian faith. Check out these short descriptions below to get a preview of his SWO15 sessions:
SEEING JESUS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
All too often, people come to the Bible with confusing misconceptions about the Old Testament. They feel that the Old Testament presents a God of wrath and that it is only in the New Testament that we see God being gracious. This could not be further from the truth. In this session, our goal is to show that the whole Bible is about Jesus and that we can see His love and His grace on every page.
THE BLOOD-SOAKED SCRIPTURES: HOW WE GOT THE BIBLE IN ENGLISH
In this breakout, we will look at the history behind how we got the Bible in the English language. We will learn about the great men of God who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that God’s Word could be preserved for you and for me to read daily. Our hope is that being well-informed on the origin of the Bible in the English language, we will be filled with gratitude to God for His amazing gift and no longer let it collect dust on our shelves.
A SNAPSHOT OF YOUTH CULTURE
– For Youth Leaders
In our increasingly tech-savvy world, it is dizzying to try to keep up with every trend into which our students are buying. Everything is changing and at a staggering pace. We need to develop a strategy for how we can look at the culture, distinctively as Christians, and convey God’s truth to the students to whom we are ministering. To do this, Zach Mabry will look at the underlying messages affecting our students in areas like social media, music, movies, fan- fiction and video games.
