Children Camp Pastor:
Rev. Steve Dye will be our Children’s Camp Pastor this week. He serves with the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions (ALSBOM) as a Deaf Ministry Consultant. He has been in leadership roles for the past 20 years. He has been a strong voice in encouraging change in many churches to “think outside of the box” and to become prayer warriors inside the church and outside of the church. He has a beautiful wife of 21 years, Mandi, who has supported and served alongside Steve everywhere he goes. They share three awesome kids: TJ (20), Faith (13), Kamayla (10).
Steve is excited to be working with the kids this year to see who is motivated to learn about Jesus. Our theme this year will be focused on Jesus, the best friend you can ever have. We will be focusing on how to trust Jesus, how to accept Jesus, how to share Jesus, and how to act like Jesus in our every day lives. Looking forward to seeing all of you at Camp Shocco for the Deaf this July 2016!

He came to know the Lord as a Savior in 1988 and was baptized on the same day. He attended Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville, Florida where he met his wife, Jona. His wife and he have been married for 26 years. They moved to Ringgold, Georgia to continue attend Bible college at Harvest Deaf Bible College.
During their last year of college, his wife, Jona battled cancer (Hodgkin's Disease). She went through chemotherapy, and the cancer was pronounced gone just a few weeks before their graduation. During her bought with cancer, the doctors told them that they would be unable to have children, but nothing is impossible with God. After over a year being cancer free, they found out she was pregnant with their daughter, Beth. Beth is now 15 years old.
After he graduated, he became a staff member at deaf Bible college as Biblical teacher and Dean of Students for 5 years. He was, also the music director/assistant pastor at Harvest Baptist Church of the Deaf.
