IT BEGAN WITH A DREAM
I stood on a sand dune looking in a camp made up of amazing tents. Each tent was decorated in gold and every bright color you could possibly imagine. Flags flew on the light breeze, each one more ornate than the last.
I looked in awe at this large gathering of elaborate tents, then I noticed movement in the distance. From out of the camp a man walked. As he started up a dune heading into the wilderness, he turned. I knew it was Jesus before he spoke, “Will you follow me outside the camp?” was all He said. Then He topped the dune and moved out into the vast desert beyond.
Let’s take our place outside with Jesus, no longer pouring out the sacrificial blood of animals but pouring out sacrificial praises from our lips to God in Jesus’ name.
Hebrews 13:15 (the Message)
Outside the Camp. A Worship Event
It’s this dream that brings us to this moment, decades later, working as the body of Christ to bring worshipers together in an open field with one purpose – to worship the King in Spirit and in Truth.
The Bride is crossing streams and denominations to seek the King in all His glory. They’re bringing instruments, chairs, blankets and friends to follow the Lord’s leading in music and song. There is no formal church affiliation other than the musicians and artisans who follow the Spirit from all the churches coming together in community to honor our One True God.
And so we worship “Outside the camp.”
Outside the Camp, LLC, was formed by a group of people donating their time and efforts to this dream. This gathering is to create the opportunity for the Body of Christ to answer the call spoken by Jesus in the dream, “Will you follow Me outside the camp?” It is that same heart that will also finance this worship event. Our hearts are to create a free event for all to come and join us in worshiping Outside the Camp. Please consider donating now, and perhaps monthly, so that Outside the Camp, A Worship event can take place. Outside the Camp is not a 501(c)3. Donations are non-tax deductible. We are thankful and overwhelmed by your support of this vision.
