DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — For the past three nights, over 1,000 campers have piled into the Dothan Civic Center to mark the end of another day of WIRED activities.
While campers’ days are filled with ministry opportunities, each night is meant to bring WIRED’s message home.
“The energy in this room is unexplainable,” said assistant director Dustin Lee. “We believe that transformation really happens when we submit ourselves to God’s word and that happens every night in the civic center.”
During each service, students hear a message from the gospel and are then invited to respond. Track leaders say this is where hearts are changed.
“I always felt something happen at evening service,” said track leader Lydia Maxwell. “I think we hear about the grace that is offered in Jesus and students are really able to connect with that.”
According to WIRED leaders, each service is geared toward drawing attention away from everyday distractions and pointing it toward the gospel.
“To see them look to Him in the scriptures and then begin to live the way He did because He came to serve us, it helps the students to realize that we can identify with this message and then submit to it,” Lee said.
“WIRED, along with mine, is apart of so many people’s testimonies because it’s a unique opportunity to be able to experience God with so many of your peers and is something that is life changing,” said camper Ty Rickard.
WIRED will wrap up Friday, June 28.
