IF YOU WERE AT RIVERCAMP LAST YEAR, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN A VIDEO TEAM AND PHOTOGRAPHERS RUNNING AROUND THE SITE. THEIR ROLES ARE SIMPLE – TO CAPTURE AS MUCH OF RIVERCAMP AS POSSIBLE, WHETHER THAT BE ON PHOTO OR FILM, SO THAT WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WEEK ISN’T FORGOTTEN.
WE ASKED ONE OF THE TEAM’S NEWEST RECRUITS – GRACE LUPSON-DARNELL ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES LAST YEAR. THIS IS WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY:
Last year was your first year on team, what were your first impressions and how did you find it?
I loved it! I felt immediately as though I was an important part of something bigger, something amazing. Everybody was so welcoming and treated me like a best mate.
What does a day look like?
A day for me always starts with Early Morning Worship, it sets me up for the day to serve people and to connect to the team around me. Each day is different, I’m running around taking photographs of families, worship sessions, talks. People love to stop and chat about how the day’s going, about what I’m doing.
Each team meeting starts with prayer, for the delegates, for us as a team and for Jesus to have his way. I’m hopping around, taking photos, taking care of social media, making coffee for people. It’s fantastic.
What’s Rivercamp like?
It’s like a giant spiritual week-long hug.
What’s amazing about being on the Media Team?
I’ve shared many special moments with people, not just delegates but team members too. Growing in Jesus with people has a vulnerability, and when this happens, people are captured at their most relaxed. Being part of a team that has a passion for capturing moments like this is so exciting to wake up and be a part of.
