Reformed: Youth Lives Changed
Reformed, celebrating the Reformation’s 500th anniversary, is the theme for Euroventure 2017, held 8-13 July in Grindelwald, Switzerland. Euroventure, a week-long camp, is designed for students who have completed 6th – 12th grades or the European equivalents (ages 12-19 years old).
Euroventure is a unique camp bringing English-speaking students from nations all over the world for a camp that for so many has become a place of spiritual growth and a place that lifelong friendships have been formed, right in the heart of Switzerland in the middle of God’s majestic creation of the Swiss Alps.
Euroventure is filled with a good balance of spiritual growth, physical activity, fun and games, fellowship, and worship. This summer we will once again offer some amazing activities during the week of camp, including canyoning, a ropes course, and hiking in the gorgeous Swiss Alps.
Speakers for the week will be Tom and Zac Hufty.
Tom is first and foremost a believer in and follower of Jesus Christ. At the age of 17, God captured his attention, and Tom gave his life to Jesus. He has an unquenchable thirst for God’s Word and a desire to “make Jesus look good” everyday and to everyone he meets.
Tom is husband to Rhonda, dad to Zac and Mackenzie, FIL (Father- In-Law) to Nicole and D.H., and Poppy to granddaughters Emmalyn, Kaylin, Vivian, and Pearl, and grandson Jack.
Tom is currently the senior pastor at First Baptist Church, Maryville, Illinois (USA). Prior to serving at FBCM, he served as vice president at Hannibal-LaGrange University, Hannibal, Missouri. Tom is the author of two daily devotional books, “Time Alone With God,” and “180°.”
For the past 21 years, Tom and Rhonda have served as the U.S. coordinators for Euroventure.
Tom’s “Best Days” are spent with family and dear friends. He enjoys recreational activities such as golfing, skiing, beach walking, and mountain climbing. For personal relaxation and enjoyment Tom plays the piano and acoustic guitar.

Zac Hufty gave his life to Christ at the age of 7, following a student camp service. His desire to wholly and completely follow Jesus and His direction for his life led him into full-time ministry. Since his early years, Zac has had an insatiable love for God’s Word and its impact on both his life and the life of people he serves.
Zac serves as the Minister of Campus Development at Houston’s First Baptist Church in Cypress, Texas. His passions are proclaiming God’s truth, spending time with his family, reading, sports, and St. Louis Cardinals baseball!
Euroventure has played a major part in Zac’s life. He attended as a student and then served as a team leader, track time leader, and camp speaker. Zac met his wife, Nicole, while serving at Euroventure. You can follow Zac on Twitter and Instagram @zachufty.
In addition to the father-son duo Tom and Zac, we will have a team of volunteers from Oklahoma Baptist University, Hannibal LaGrange University, and churches throughout the U.S. and Europe, supplying leadership in the roles of small group leaders, break out session teachers, music, and drama leaders.
A special training time for youth workers and volunteers will be held during the breakout sessions. We are very excited about the opportunity to have youth pastors and lay leaders from all over Europe together for a time to be encouraged, receive training and resources, and connect with other leaders.
