Since 1926 Kanakuk’s mission to “develop dynamic Christian leaders” has been the foundation for all we do, and I’m Third Groups are an integral part of our mission. Discipleship is the heartbeat of our Kanakuk Kamps, and these groups are able to encourage our Kampers to honor God in every part of their lives year round.
Every summer at Kanakuk we’re able to witness lives changed by Jesus Christ as leaders are made, Kampers grow in maturity, and ultimately go home refreshed and encouraged in their walk with Jesus. One of the foundations of our teaching at Kanakuk is the I’m Third lifestyle: God First, Others Second, I’m Third.
Johnny Ferrier was a pilot who made a living performing air stunts at air shows all over the United States. Johnny was a Kanakuk Kamper and carried his I’m Third card in his wallet wherever he went.
