The Miracle in the Cornfield – Summer Scream

The Miracle in the Cornfield – Summer Scream

Pastor Gary and Pam Kruzan pioneered and have been pastoring Faith Christian Family Church in Rushville, Illinois, since 1987. Though their location is in a small rural town, their vision is anything but small. God has used them in a wonderful way to not only build a strong local church, but also to build an outstanding youth camp that is now reaching hundreds of teens every summer.

Their son and youth minister, Doug Kruzan, shared the following about their outreach to teens:

Since it’s inception in 1993 Summer Scream Youth Camp has been ministering to the youth of the Heartland Region. Dynamic, state-of-the-art praise and worship followed by powerful preaching and teaching are the heart and soul of Summer Scream.

Every year we receive testimonies of first time salvations, baptisms in the Holy Ghost, and healings all stemming from our focus on spreading the Gospel to young people.

As a result of our strong emphasis on spiritual excellence we have received the following responses from youth who have attended; “God bless you, your family, and church for all the ways you blessed us.” “I wanted to personally thank you for having this camp.” “I definitely have gone to another level with Christ because of camp…” If you would like to help Summer Scream Youth Camp continue to impact the lives of young people in ways like this you can.

We believe God for 300 partners to pledge $10.00 a month to the camp. We are close to reaching our goal, but still need more help. Having partners allows us to keep the cost down so more campers can attend. If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact Faith Christian Family Church at (217) 322-6929.
