when I was in 7th grade, my youth Pastor convinced us to go to Chico to a summer camp. It was the theme “Champions” that year.. Not only did I encounter the love of God like never before, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Although I had felt called to ministry since I was a young child, I can not deny the further assurance I felt because of Radical Reality camp. Donnie has prayed over me, spoke into my life, and has been someone I look up to since 2006. After nearly 10 years of camps both as a student and a leader- I can honestly say my life was forever changed. As a youth pastor, I often reflect on my time from these camps. I am forever grateful because of he love of God Donnie showed to me, my siblings, and my youth kids. One of the biggest take always I have from Donnie Moore is the way he knew how to do true ministry of the Gospel, and that was the way he knew how to love people. My personal walk with God has always grown from each and every single message he gave. And I cannot begin to express he lasting impact he had in demonstrating how to be a leader to others by simply following God with everything he had.
