ARP News Update

Quest 2014


335 ARP middle school students and leaders are at Bonclarken Conference Center this week for the Quest Conference. 28 churches are represented at this CEM event. The students have had a fun-filled week already with a carnival on Monday, a color run and pool party on Tuesday. Today they had free time with their church family for the afternoon. There is still a full schedule for the rest of the week including dodgeball and a sludge war.

Rev. Stephen Laughridge is the pastor for the week bringing a time of worship in the morning and evening. He is the pastor of Wellspring Presbyterian Church in Daleville, VA. He is married to Pressly Ann, and they have 5 children.


The Brandon Auten Band is back for another full week. Brandon is on staff at Crossings Community Church in Columbia, SC. He leads worship and the young couples ministry.

Please be in prayer for allĀ of the students, leaders and staff as they are filled with the Holy Spirit.
