Panama City, Florida
Our mission is to creatively communicate the refreshing Spirit of Christ, the truth of His word, and the difference living for Him can make in our lives.
All of the elements and logistics of our events are geared to that end. The people who lead Bigstuf camps are gifted people who have a history of character and integrity.
There are approximately 1500 students at each of the 9 BigStuf Camps in Panama City Beach.
At Metro Community Church we have several hopes and expectations for our students:
1. To grow closer to God.
