Six hundred seventy-three young people made public commitments to Christ through baptism on the shores of Daytona Beach, Fla., this summer. New Spring Church in Anderson, S.C., saw more than 2,500 middle and high school students attend an annual summer camp, dubbed The Gauntlet, where more than 300 young people were saved in addition to those baptized.

The event marked the largest occasion of baptisms in the church’s history.

“We have seen so much healing and so much brokenness being completed,” says Brad Cooper, the church’s student director.  “We’re just so pumped!” —Felicia Abraham
