Meet Devon Remmington!
Summer Role: Co-Games Coordinator
Although Devon is newly married and it is one of the busiest seasons of his life, he comes out to Charis every spare minute to increase the “fun factor” through things like Campfire Songs, Talent Shows and Dance Parties!
Devon has a history of memorable hair choices like long mohawks, bright colors and dreads, not to mention his epic outfits. You know when Devon shows up because the noise goes up a few decibels and silly camp songs are soon to follow.
What’s your story, Devon?
“Well, I knew of the existence of God most of my life but it didn’t become my own faith until Grade 9. I had a great Youth Pastor who really took time with me, invested in me and taught me what the Bible actually said. All this developed into a real relationship with Jesus.”
How has Charis Camp impacted you?
“I don’t think we have enough time to answer that question. Charis has been a place where God has stretched, grown, molded and developed me in more ways than I can count. I have been coming here since 2003 when I signed up to be a Cabin Leader at 17 years old. Camp has been the most significant thing in my life. Now there are leaders here that were my campers. It is so amazing to see what God has done!”
What’s God up to in your life now?
“He is taking me down to my foundation and wants to build me back up so my focus isn’t so split and I’m not distracted by so much. God needs to be my main focus; if He is my focus I don’t have to worry about all the other stuff.”
Devon was married to his beautiful bride December 29th, 2018, works in Landscaping and serves as a Tae Kwon Doe Instructor when he’s not investing at Camp. Camp has changed Devon’s life and his huge heart for Jesus shows as he serves on the Charis Camp Board and continues to volunteer Summer after Summer to make sure the legacy of life change continues!
