For 20 years, thousands of men of all ages and life stages have gathered at BASECAMP (previously Katoomba Men's Convention) to be reminded of the greater vision that God has for their lives.
At BASECAMP this year, we asked our delegates to share their reasons for joining the movement!
Ivan from Gracepoint Presbyterian attended BASECAMP Sydney for the first time this year because he wanted to hear teaching that was relevant to Christian men:
"What really convinced me to come is the fact that this event is all about hearing what God has to say through other men, hearing from their advice and life experience for what it means to be a godly man."
At a time when following Jesus can be isolating and discouraging, Ivan found it encouraging to be surrounded by a thousand men who had also set aside a Saturday to dig deep into God's word:
"Consider how often men get together to talk about important serious spiritual topics. And yet it's something so important for Christians to do. I think KCC has really addressed this issue by organising something like BASECAMP."
David from Emu Plains Anglican has been attending BASECAMP for a number of years. He brings a group of men every year because they believe that BASECAMP plays a valuable part in their spiritual walk with God and one another:
"What makes BASECAMP great is that you get to spend a whole day under the Word of God and you get to reflect with your mates, something that's so unique to the Christian experience."
Chester from Gracepoint Presbyterian shares why he has been coming to BASECAMP for over a decade and why the event has remained a priority despite the busyness of family, church and work:
"If you're concerned that you've had a hard week and you just don't have the energy, i'd encourage you to come because you'll actually get your energy renewed."
Chester also shares how God used BASECAMP to connect him to a brother in Christ, a fellow believer who he has walked alongside for over 12 years:
"BASECAMP is a great spring board to building relationships with other men that you can walk with, beyond today. 12 years ago I went with a younger brother in Christ and we founded our mateship and from that, we've continued hanging out with one another and pointing one another to Christ."
