Young Teen Camp Staff

Camp Speaker

Boris Pena
Boris Pena

Hello ! My name’s Boris Pena. I’m the youth pastor at the Platteville Free Methodist Church in Platteville, Wisconsin. I am so excited to speak at young teen camp! I was born in the Dominican Republic, an island in the Caribbean. I was raised in Aurora, Illinois the second biggest city in Illinois! I love Jesus, playing guitar and singing. I also love hiking and adventuring! When I can’t be outside you’ll find me coding or playing video games. I like to think i’m a funny guy but my youth group doesn’t think so.

Charis Ball

Worship Leader

Charis BAll

My name is Charis Ball. I graduated from Central Christian College of Kansas in May of 2020 (#classofCOVID). I am originally from Bristow, OK

I love to worship the Lord and enjoy singing and making music with any and everyone! There is something so sweet and strengthening about a place where the Lord is being worshiped by many, together! I love spending time outdoors and trying to be adventurous (even though I’m a major planner). I surrendered my life to Jesus and accepted Him as my Lord and Savior in June of 2013 at a youth camp in Oklahoma. If you want to make my day, bring me a donut or a cup of coffee and you’ll be one of my best friends forever!
