Campus Minister: Kevin Huston
The Shack Campus Ministry reaches out to college students at the University of South Carolina. It is the only campus ministry funded and operated by the support of Christian Churches within South Carolina. This is also the only student church service that actually meets on the campus itself. They call the building where they meet “The Shack”. Their worship services normally have 70 to 80 students in attendance. The focus of this ministry is to reach out to students who are unchurched and to offer a spiritual anchor to those who had some church background before leaving home for college. Through a combination of worship services, Bible study, counseling, and fun activities the staff makes connections with the students and helps them mature spiritually. Students are encouraged to invite their friends into the non-threatening atmosphere. The real excitement comes when these students make connections, learn about Jesus Christ and make lifelong commitments. On last Sunday alone, five students were baptized into Christ in the Congaree River. One of these young people was a woman who had previously been a self-professed atheist. College aged students often find themselves at the intellectual and spiritual crossroads of their life. Isn’t it great that we can be there for some of them at The Shack. A place where they can find people that love them, care about their problems, and will teach them faithfully from God’s Holy Scriptures.

They do this by providing a quality Christian education for Native American children and youth. The desired vision is to develop and equip Native Americans for Christian leadership and ministry service, and to reach Native American communities with a culturally relevant message of Jesus Christ.
Camp Edisto is located in Branchville South Carolina, which is 16 miles south of Orangeburg. Through the years, tens of thousands of young people have spent a week at camp learning about God and Christian values. Through a combination of worship, Bible study, and fun activities youth make important commitments to God about their faith. They grow and mature in their spiritual walk. And, many young people make their decision to accept Christ as their savior during these weeklong experiences. This is one of the most important ministries of Camp Edisto, but it is not the only one. For more than 30 years this camp has provided a place for Christian Churches to hold summer youth camps, Christian seminars for men and women’s groups, special gatherings of spiritual enrichment, church leadership meetings, and family retreats.
