A look back at 2019- Caleb LaMastres
“This summer was a great experience overall! From reunions to camps, I found myself in roles that I didn’t know I could do. From teaching classes, to setting up events, to being a counselor, it felt like a new great adventure each week. The thing I’m most proud of this summer was being able to positively impact kids’ lives and help them navigate their unique relationship with God. “
