Why More of the King?

More of the King Publishing produces youth Bible study lessons written specifically for the camp setting. Author Debbie Morris has more than 40 years of experience working in Christian camps and loves the opportunity camp provides to reach kids with the Gospel. Having home-schooled her own three daughters, as well as teaching Sunday School regularly, she knows how to reach children and teens.

Debbie knows that study materials for camp have to speak directly to the campers at their level, as well as providing structure and inspiration for busy camp leaders.

Our name, More of the King, comes from this quote by John Piper:

"The zeal of the church for the glory of her King will not rise until pastors and mission leaders and seminary teachers [and camp staff] make much More of the King. When the glory of God himself saturates our preaching and teaching and conversation and writings, and when he predominates above our talk of methods and strategies and psychological buzz words and cultural trends, then the people [campers] might begin to feel that he is the central reality of their lives and that the spread of his glory is more important than all their possessions and all their plans."
John Piper
Let the Nations Be Glad! (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1993), p. 38.
