WHO WE ARE
RESET is a nonprofit organization created to push the boundaries of traditional discipleship methods to better reach inner city students and leaders.
Our vision is for students and leaders to build relationships with each other, connect with Christ, and cultivate their influence in their local church and community.
CONNECT WITH CHRIST
RESET hosts an annual summer camp for middle & high school students and their leaders. Although the primary target is the Gulf South region, its reach has far exceeded that. The purpose of the camp is twofold: guide students in growing their faith and developing their spiritual talents and gifts & educate youth group leaders on how to connect students to the Body of Christ.
Students and youth ministry leaders are able to participate in corporate worship, devotions, recreation, creative arts, and more.

During Summer 2014, the founder of RESET Camp, Pastor Chip Luter, III, had a vision to offer an alternative to traditional summer camps. As a youth pastor, he attended various camps around the country bi-annually. He found that there was a need, specifically in the Gulf South Region, to provide an engaging and relevant camp experience for students and youth leaders within inner city groups. In response to that need, Chip and Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans, along with several young ministry volunteers, partnered with Pastor Jeff Wallace and Peace Baptist Church in Atlanta to launch RESET Camp. In June 2015, RESET hosted its first camp in Talladega, AL. More than 25 youth ministry leaders, 100 students ranging from 6th - 12th grade and 30 volunteers participated.
Since then, the camp has garnered attention from students, ministry leaders, and youth groups across the nation and hosts its annual summer camp for students and leaders from around the country. RESET continues its mission by serving inner-city churches, community groups, students, youth ministries and volunteers year-round.
