Bethany Barr Phillips

Bethany Barr Phillips

Worship Leader

Leading worship and sharing her story of healing, Bethany Barr Phillips takes eight years of church staff experience to the road with a vision to share the Gospel through worship by way of her new release: Bring This Heart to Life. This full-length worship project birthed a heart in this Mississippi native to dive in head first to what God is laying before she and her team as they share these songs full of Scripture and hope.

Bethany shares, “As the band and I have traveled over the last several years, we have come across so many and were reminded that everyone has their struggles, no matter the age or place in life. So we wanted to address, through Scripture, many of those things we all come against in this world.  Fear, insignificance, hopelessness, whatever, the Holy Spirit is the gift from God to walk with us through this life. We want to tell people Jesus is Who he says He is and, through trusting in Him by Holy Spirit, He will bring your heart to life.”

She has opened for artists such as Audio Adrenaline and Toby Mac, as well as led worship on platforms with speakers like Scott Dawson, David Nasser, and Dr. Jay Strack; through these experiences, her heart for leading worship and seeing God move among His people only becomes greater as her opportunities increase.

FAQs

 

What is Super Summer?
Super Summer is a discipleship/evangelism leadership conference designed to provide qualitative spiritual growth and help develop student leadership in Mississippi churches. Utilizing a camp setting, for 29 years, Super Summer has challenged students to learn how to penetrate their culture for Christ.

Super Summer is not for everyone in your youth group. It is designed for students who personally have a desire to grow spiritually. Students come to Super Summer knowing that they will be challenged not only to grow, but to actively share their faith with others. Church leaders are responsible for sending only students that meet the requirements set forth for participation.

Super Summer is designed to build on previous years. However, a junior or senior in high school who has never attended will still find that the camp is relevant to him/her. First-year students study basic discipleship issues. Second-year students get introduced to worldview, different beliefs, and character issues. Third-year students focus the entire week on becoming a leader in all areas of life. Fourth-year students concentrate on a biblical worldview. Fifth-year students spend the week reviewing and refining what they have learned over the past four years especially concerning servant-leadership. This includes hands-on missions experience, usually in the inner-city Jackson area.

Who can attend Super Summer?
Each group must have at least one male adult if male students are attending and one female if female students are attending. Adults participate in the Plaid School. Team Leaders (usually, but not limited to college students) come to Super Summer early for training and serve as family group leaders within the schools. Team Leaders have specific requirements they must meet to be eligible to serve. Super Summer teaching staff is comprised of Student Ministers within our state and are recruited by our Super Summer Executive Committee.
What will attendees be studying?
First-year students study basic discipleship issues. The exception is older first-year students (who will not have the opportunity to return to Super Summer) because their need for exposure to big issues is greater. Second-year students get introduced to worldview, different beliefs, and character issues. Third-year students focus the entire week on becoming a leader in all areas of their life. Fourth-yearstudents concentrate on Christian Worldview for the week. Fifth-year students spend the week reviewing and refining what they have learned over the past four years and are also moved into action as they spend portions of their week in ministry. As you can see, each year a student attends Super Summer, his experience builds on the previous year(s).
What's the deal with Color Schools?
Super Summer students are divided into schools based on the number of years they’ve attended and their age (ages for the individual schools sometimes change depending on registration numbers that particular year). Our basic school breakdown is:

  • First-year Students – Red, Silver, Orange, and Gold Schools
  • Second-year Students – Blue and Brown Schools
  • Third-year Students – Yellow and Lime Schools
  • Fourth-year Students – Green School
  • Fifth-year Students – Purple School
  • Adults Attending – Plaid School
