A VP’s Perspective

A VP’s Perspective

AJ Chambers sqr AJ Chamber has a very rewarding history with FUGE.  He has worked 9 summers in various roles, such as track leader, actor, and video producer.  He currently lives in a suburb of Charleston, SC and serves as a high school broadcast journalism and film production teacher.  In his free time, AJ is a Zumba instructor and movie addict.

 

As a FUGE Camps video producer, I get to be a fly on the wall; I see everything as an observer. In these moments, God teaches me so much about our relationship with Him and other believers.

I could be out visiting MFUGE sites trying to fight traffic and the clock in order to capture as many campers as possible, yet gain endless joy from what I see.  It can be as simple as a little girl’s smile as she totally tangles the hair of a camper (who unbeknownst to her is about to spend all evening trying to get it back to normal for worship), or an elderly woman with dementia smiling from ear to ear playing balloon volleyball.  In these moments, I see God’s love for us.  My heart and mind are opened to the reality of how simple life is when you focus on serving God with everything.  These moments fill me welling with emotions.

More importantly, I see that same impact in the lives of those being served and the campers and staffers serving.  It is life-changing and truly inspiring.  I am reminded of what Jesus called us to do in John13:12-14 “When Jesus had washed their feet and put on His robe, He reclined again and said to them, “Do you know what I have done for you? You call Me Teacher and Lord. This is well said, for I am. So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.”  It is beautiful, inspiring, and joyous to see this action in practice working with FUGE.
