The Center for Christian Service and Leadership has hired David Moses as the new director of ACU Leadership Camps.
ACU Leadership Camps, such as Kadesh or MPulse, are for children ranging from pre-school to high school. Moses, a former youth minister of 18 years, has been an avid participator in the Leadership Camps for years.
In addition to Moses, Jan Meyer, assistant dean for Student Life, said Mary Beth Cuevas was hired as the new associate director of the Leadership Camps. Meyer said Cuevas is in charge of the younger camps. Meyer emphasized the significance of being able to replace both of their directors at the same time.
“Moses’ experience as a former youth minister and his qualifications really fit what we were looking for as camp director,” said Meyer. “He really loves ACU Leadership camps.”
Moses said he is confident this will be a good fit for him.
“For me and where I’ve been, 18 to 19 years of ministry and two years of preaching, to be back working with young people is an overwhelming blessing,” Moses said. “I have no doubt God’s purpose in my life is to impact the lives of young people in His name.”
Jan Meyer, executive director of leadership camps and Bob Strader, previous director of leadership camps, selected Moses for the position. Moses became close with them in his time as a youth minister bringing kids to their camps. Moses said that over time, the two became a few of his spiritual mentors.
“After being associated with them for 16 years as a camp volunteer,” Moses said, “it is a dream-come-true to come to work with them each day.”
As the new director, Moses plans to evaluate the way things are with the camps and decide what changes need to be made with camp activities or schedules.
“There are going to be some natural changes,” Moses said, “but the process and the changes that a camper goes through each week are life changing.”
Moses gives credit to God for bringing him to this job.
“Looking back on my years of ministry, God has placed me in exactly the right places at exactly the right time and his blessings have just amazed me,” Moses said. “I have to believe God has placed me here for good things.”
