A few months before our friend and ministry partner, Keith Loomis, went home to be with the Lord after a long battle with cancer, he and I had a brief conversation about how much Power Plant meant to my work in church planting in Pittsburgh (2002-2008).

Power Plant is a World Changer-type event where students work alongside a planter, rather than repair homes, etc. He was obviously moved by my statements about it.

I inquired as to why my words had affected him in such a dramatic way. He then shared that he and Andy Morris had sketched on a napkin the idea which became Power Plant in a restaurant in Memphis, Tenn.

The Lord would not allow me to get this idea out of my mind, which led us to have another meeting to follow up and plan how to make this happen in Alabama. Here is the pilot project:

July 12-17 at Romar Beach Baptist Church
Designed for middle and high school students (13-18 year olds). Only 72 beds available for this pilot project. Deadline for registration is May 15, 2015. Cost is $150 per person (newly reduced price). A $75 non-refundable deposit will reserve your spot. Total will be due not later than July 12, 2015. Your assigned projects will be outlined by no later than June 12, 2015. Notes will need to be provided by student pastors as to students who do not need to be placed together or those who should be placed together. It will be expected that each group have at least a ratio of one chaperone per five students coming.

Student Pastor: Here is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something exciting here in our state. Even if you have your 2015 student camps already scheduled, this event affords you the opportunity to handpick students in whom you may see the potential of them being planters or serving in a missions setting. Here is the proposed schedule:
