2024 Theme: Linked by Love

Featured Speakers:

Maggie Akinleye is going into her fourth and final year at Princeton Theological Seminary, working toward her MDiv and MACEF. She is passionate about holistic discipleship, youth and young adult ministry, and crafting intentional spaces for transformation in worship settings and beyond. Outside of her vocational interests, Maggie loves hosting people in her home for meals and movie nights, laughter, good conversation, and Sabbath baking (feel free to ask her what she’s been baking or watching recently during camp)!

Jackson Reynolds recently graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary, receiving his Master of Divinity. He has many passions in life: traveling, hot yoga, running, movies, television shows, sci-fi/fantasy, anime, the Bible, talking theology, preaching the gospel, writing, board games, and a whole lot more! His calling to ministry is multifaceted. However, one of the major parts is accompanying those around him in their walks of faith to help them discern what God is calling them to do with their lives. Originally from the great corn state of Iowa, starting in August, Jackson will be the vicar at Messiah Lutheran Church in Springfield, MO. He is in the ordination process for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Although Jackson has never been to Zephyr Point, he has spent many summers working at a Bible camp and is so excited to come to witness the awesomeness of Zephyr Point!
