RISE LEADERS

Our RISE Leadership Program is an 11 month program designed to give young men and women the opportunity to grow in their faith and have hands-on experience with ministry.
 
The program normally starts mid-September. We encourage applications during the spring and summer.

Kenzie Hall

RISE Leader

Kenzie Hall was born and raised in Troutman, NC where she was an active member at Troutman Baptist Church. Kenzie’s passions include going on mission trips, working with her dad, and spending time in the great outdoors. She greatly enjoys being with family and friends.

Kenzie is excited for the RISE Leadership Program because of the opportunity it offers her to be even more involved in ministry. Her heart for service, passion for the Lord, and versatile skill set make her a welcome addition to the team.

 

NOah Autry

RISE Leader

Noah was born and raised in North Carolina. At an early age his heart was led to a deeper love of both camp and the Lord through attending Caraway Conference Center & Camps. Recently he served on summer staff at a Christian camp in North Carolina. 

Noah is eager to both to share what he has learned while also learning from this experience. He is looking forward to the RISE Leadership program deepening his faith, experience and skillset in Christian camping. He views his time at Truett as an important step in answering a calling by the Lord into full-time camp ministry. 

In Noah’s free time he loves to fish, read, and enjoys archery and paintball.  

Volunteers

Volunteers play a critical role in our camp’s operation. Their invaluable service is a great witness in and of itself. Our primary needs include kitchen, maintenance, ground, and medical, especially during the summer. But whatever your skills, we can utilize your heart to serve the Lord.

Summer Staff

Summer is primetime for camps, and Truett is no different. Approximately 1,000 people will come to camp during this short two month window. Our summer staff play a crucial role in ministering to campers, serving guests, and helping camp operate smoothly. Being part of our summer staff is a tremendous opportunity to grow as a leader, employee, and Christian.

RISE Leadership Program

At Truett we are always investing in the next generation. This includes young adults considering a career in Christian camping. The Real Internship and Spiritual Experience gives rising leaders genuine and valuable experience. The nearly year long program lets them experience all aspects of the camp industry and gives them a leadership role during the summer season which they get to help plan!
