2012 Gem State Academy Alumni Weekend
Find Your Way
March 30 & 31, 2012
Its amazing how far off course we can get when were not watching our steps. Have you ever wondered, "How did I get here?"
Travel back to your time at Gem State Academy when you first opened your eyes to life as an adult. The world was your oyster and the possibilities, endless. The chaos of life had not yet stripped away your clear vision of what a healthy, happy, Christ centered life should be. These and many other pursuits of life are easily diluted or completely forgotten as time slips away. So it is with great importance and urgency that we open our eyes and take an honest look around us.
If we find that our intended path is nowhere to be found, we must re-center our minds and re-focus our hearts on the vision we once had. Are you still making choices in your life that follow Christs intentions for you? Or is it time to open your eyes and start making some life changes? Either way, what better place to do that than with friends and loved ones at Gem State Academy on Alumni Weekend?

About the Speakers:
VESPERS - Charles and Marjorie (Jones) Brown
Charles Brown is the founder and president of Adventist Reconciliation Services (ARS), a professional service that provides mediation and arbitration services for individuals, "Congregation Conflict Intervention" services for churches, and training in Christian conciliation. Marjorie has also taken the reconciler training offered by the Institute for Christian Conciliation and she serves as office manager and secretary-treasurer of ARS.
Charles and Marjorie will share the story of Marjories deliverance from demonic harassment on Friday evening of alumni weekend. It is a story that will convince you that the great controversy is real and that Biblical principles will equip you for the battle.
CHURCH Kameron DeVasher
Kameron DeVasher believes that by God's grace all people, including youth, are far more capable than we often assume. "Twenty-one-year-olds and 81-year-olds can converse as peers. Young people can think, speak, write, and carry serious responsibilities as much as adults when rightly trained. We need to raise our expectations of them and their expectations of themselves!
This past December Pastor Kameron spoke to more than 5,000 youth and young adults about the need and promise of Christian character development. The venue was the Generation of Youth for Christ conference in Houston, Texas. His topic at GSAs homecoming will be: The Great Object of Life
After leaving Gem State Academy where his focus was young people, Kameron served as Associate Pastor of the Avon Park, Florida Church where he interacted with many senior citizens. Now he and his wife, Emilie (Wilson) DeVasher, are serving in a rural area of Michigan and he is excited to see what he can learn from yet another group of people. Kameron and Emilie have one child, Henry, who is 18 months old.
