Idaho Conference Camp Meeting 2021

Camp Meeting 2021 is coming! After a year of being quarantined and restricted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope we will have some form of in-person camp meeting. Camp meeting is planned to be on the campus of Gem State Adventist Academy June 8–12. We are also planning to livestream at least the evening meetings and will work on livestreaming the daytime meetings and seminars. We plan to make a decision on in-person camp meeting by March 15, 2021. Please check our website,, or visit us on Facebook, @idahocampmeeting, for more information.

This year’s theme is “Remember Gethsemane.” Our evening and Sabbath morning speaker is Lee Venden, pastor and evangelist. In a world in which many consider only themselves, picture in your mind the scene from Gethsemane. Jesus is off by Himself, praying for the strength to follow through with the God's plan to redeem mankind. What a sacrifice! What an act of love!

Venden has never forgotten the joy he experienced when he discovered the difference between knowing about Jesus and actually knowing Jesus. A pastor and educator for nearly 40 years, Venden has sought to know Jesus better and to help others accomplish that as well. He has authored three books and co-authored the internationally popular website His sermons can be viewed over the internet and on the various television networks.

Other speakers include Grant Agadjanian, Jim Kilmer, Dale Galusha and Beverly Sedlacek. Sabbath afternoon, the Victory Choir from the Oasis Adventist Church in Boise, Idaho, will present a concert. The Victory Choir members are Seventh-day Adventist refugees from Rwanda. Their beautiful harmonies will lift your heart toward heaven.

Our Spanish-language camp meeting speaker is Robert Costa. A native of Uruguay, Costa is the speaker/director of Escrito Está, the Spanish television program of It Is Written. Escrito Está is broadcast weekly via satellite, cable and more than 1,000 local channels and radio stations, reaching more than 138 countries.

Whether we meet in person, on livestream or through a combination of the two, we hope you will join us for Idaho Camp Meeting 2021.
