This week I am in Montreat, NC to be their photographer! This is strictly volunteer, and completely FUN!
A little fun fact about this is that I have been coming to Montreat since I was a freshman in High School! Many years down the road and many different responsibilities I am back again for another summer and completely grateful and blessed that I was asked to be the photographer for the week.
So the first full day is over, Sunday started with a ton of youth pouring through the gates of the conference center to come be apart of a week full of FAITH, FUN, ENERGIZERS, WORSHIP, and KEYNOTE! 1200 youth and adults came to take in and be spiritually moved through their experience from all over the United States. It is an experience that I have enjoyed with many of my closest friends, and have become to know some of my closest friends.
Opening night was fabulous, we learned/explored what the theme for the week is “Searching for the Signal!” Watching the wonderful planning team be hilariously awesome through Anderson Idol, SYTCD, snuggie commercials, Law and Order (or Bob & Carol) episode, and many other awesome acts! We learned who would lead us for the week, and how they were going to explore the theme from the stage!
Here is day 1 in photos (in a nutshell)
