You can get involved and find your people in a variety of groups and clubs throughout the week. Pick a group, get involved, and be an Urban Saint.
When I first came to Urban Saints, I was a completely different person. I was extremely quiet and bogged down by insecurities. Through Urban Saints, I made lasting friendships and fostered connections with leaders. Having such a strong community helped me throughout my high school career. Being at Urban Saints allowed me to grow which shaped me into who I am today.
My last year at Lake Champion was extremely bittersweet. It was incredible being able to see new lives brought to Christ and to witness the curiosity that surrounds getting to know God. However, being at Lake Champion set me on an exciting path as I enter college. If I hadn’t gone to camp, I am almost certain it would have taken me much longer to begin looking for a church and a bible study on campus. Being at camp helped clarify God’s place in my life, even as I undergo these big changes. I am extremely thankful that Urban Saints set me on my current path.

A MESSAGE FROM ILZE GIDEONS, YOUTH PASTOR
“My heart and vision are to redeem the word ‘Urban’. Most of the world, especially when referring to teenagers, describe an “urban kid” as poor, from a bad home and a person who is in constant desperate need. I believe the name Urban Saint(s) is redemptive, loving on every kid here in the NYC, regardless of their socio-economic status, nationality, gender or ability. Our Hope and Challenge is to love kids they way Jesus loves us, fervently, without prejudice or any reserve. In order to do this well, we invite YOU, our community, to join in and partner with us to make this dream a very possible reality.”
-Ilze Gideons, Youth Pastor
