“Through my many years in ministry with young people in Young Life and church, as well as seeing my own kids impacted by Pine Cove Camps in Texas, I have made it my goal to help my family, friends, church, and community grow in their desire to follow Jesus Christ and experience a relationship with God through the work of His Spirit – everything else is a non-essential.” – Dave Lewis
