Summer Camp 2014

Panama City, Florida
Dave Cross – Camp Speaker
Dave is the camp speaker for Above the Waves, but so much more than that, he is a man of God who seeks to inspire youth in their walk with and passion for the Lord. Dave’s ultimate goal is to fall madly in love with Christ. It is his goal while at camp to bring that same passion and desire to teenagers who are attending Above the Waves. Dave’s background in ministry began at Baptist Bible College and continued for eight years as a youth pastor. His desire is to not only work with youth but also to serve them, and he has been doing so since 2000. He has also recently been involved with a new Knoxville church plant since the Spring of 2012. When he is not in churches or speaking at camps, you can find him on a golf course or at a college football game. Maybe at camp we can even catch him in the waves. Dave shared with us, “There’s nothing more exciting and inspiring than learning who Christ wants us to be – fully and completely resting in him.”
The Derek Janney Band – Camp Band
The Derek Janney Band is nothing more and nothing less than a band of brothers whose sole goal is to lead others to the Father. Though each of the members began their musical craft at various times in their lives, their paths were forever intertwined when they began worshiping together. Derek, the namesake and lead singer of the Derek Janney Band, grew up in church, a pastor’s kid, with a desire to lead others to the feet of Jesus through authentic worship. He has led worship on multiple continents, as well as all across the great USA and for nearly ten years, at youth camps and conferences. Jeremiah, Jordan, Adam and Eddie all lead worship at their home church, Orlando Baptist Church, and in college and youth groups throughout Orlando, Fl. In their off-time, the band enjoys cheesy movies, Orlando sporting events and celebrating Taco Tuesdays. No matter where the Lord leads the band, they always seem to find their roots back home, passionately praising the Lord and thanking Him for the opportunities He has given them to lead this generation closer to Christ. In the summer of 2007, the band set out to change the way they had experienced worship at camps, and they have been loving it ever since. In the seven years they have been doing camps, they have seen some incredible events and life change. This year, they decided to follow the Lord’s calling on them to host their own camp, combining all of their favorite and most effective elements from the camps they have been to in the past. Their vision for Above the Waves is to inspire students for long-term change.
Dustin Janney – Camp Director
There is no mistaking that Christian summer camps are in Dustin’s blood. He grew up at Shady Grove Youth Camp – The Summit where his grandfather, Dr. Al Janney, had a ministry for most of Dustin’s youth. His desire to continue that tradition but bring it to the youth of this generation is one of the cornerstones of Above the Waves this summer. Dustin has been serving in youth ministry for fifteen years and currently serves as the youth pastor at Avalon Church in Orlando, Fl. During that time, he has been in charge of many youth events including one-day camps and rallies. Dustin brings his extensive experience to Above the Waves this year. He’s been dreaming of this camp for years and is so excited to see God’s plan come to life. Dustin and his wife Brooke have two daughters and are expecting their first son this spring. He is very competitive and has likely played and won every camp game you have ever seen. Good thing he is coming up with all new ones for Above the Waves.
