THEME: Dignity

It’s an essential human need. Dignity heals our hurts, lifts up the weak, and gives hope to the hopeless. This weekend come and learn from the ultimate dignifier of persons: Jesus.

In the Bible, Jesus preserved and offered dignity to those with whom He shared His message of hope.  In our society today we see that people long for this basic human need to be met; often they do not find what they are looking for.  

Jesus takes the hurts we have, the shame we hide and the scars that are apparent to everyone and dignifies us so that these all become a powerful witness for him. 


Paul Khosla is the coordinator for SERVE Campus Network, a national network of Pentecostal campus ministries that includes UCM.  He lives in Oakville, Ontario and Hyderbad, India with his accounting corporate operations ninja wife, Diana; wonderfully artistic daughter, Isabel and joyfully entertaining son; Judsen.

He has spent nearly 20 years engaged in  ministry, including the six  years focusing on university chaplaincy and campus church planting.  Paul is a passionate follower of Jesus and leverages discipleship, innovation and creative environments to fulfill his calling.

Paul built portable housing.  Lydia made high-end clothing.  Barnabas was in Real Estate, and Apollos was in Education. Matthew worked with spreadsheets, and Luke had a medical practice.  While these early Jesus followers provided for themselves and those they cared about, they penetrated every region of the then known world, living out the glory of God, inspiring hope, justice and transformation.

Are you someone who is discontent to just attend a church meeting?  Have you heard that Jesus is calling his followers to the marketplaces of everyday life in the most exotic of places? Places where they can ply their trade and practice their profession while they live out the glory of God amongst people who’ve never heard of redemption.  Are you interested in more than the normal life?  

Packing List: 

Water bottle, warm casual clothing, shoes to hike outdoors (there will be snow and ice!), toiletries, bible, pen, journal, extra cash for travel food. An offering will be taken (credit card option will be available). 

For those who registered in the outdoor Bunk Cabins ($125 option), please bring Bedding, Pillow, and Towel.


We have hired a coach bus (with 48-seats) to drive us from the UBCO campus to Camp Hope and return. We will be meeting at 4:00pm on Friday in front of F Lot. Pack dinner or eat before had. We will have a fuel stop, but not a dinner stop. 

The bus will be parked in F Lot. You can hangout in the UNC until you see the bus. We will depart at 4:30pm sharp. The cost is FREE because we received a grant from the OPCS (Okanagan Pentecostal Camp Society).

On Sunday, we will leave the camp by 11:30am, and stop for a lunch break in Merritt at TripleO's / Dairy Queen. We should arrive back at UBCO around 3:00pm.
