TIPS for a successful Banff Day

  • Take a look at the options we provided and do your research. Our goal is to provide some landing spots for you to plan a great day for your team and hopefully some new friends you meet at Camp. You’re likely to run into people from Camp at any of these options throughout the day. Some activities require reservations ahead of time. These are all optional and at your own expense.
  • Plan for parking. In order for your day to run smoothly, look into what parking options are available near the activity you choose. As parking is limited, we suggest carpooling if you can.
  • HAVE FUN – We’ve created this optional day for you to unwind, process and relax with some new friends. Don’t leave Camp without connecting with your tribe.

Brandon &
Lindsay Stewart

Brandon & Lindsay fiercely believe in the power and potential of a healthy local church. Firmly planted at Champions Centre in Tacoma, WA, they have given their lives toward this cause. They have given their drive and effort to the success of the Team Church Conference and tribe, as well as coaching pastors, leaders, and teams across North America. Brandon and Lindsay are the Founders & Executive Directors of Leading Second.


Larry and his wife Janet were one of the original eight families that sold their homes, quit their jobs and moved to Charlotte to start Elevation Church in February of 2006. Over the past 15 years the church has seen incredible blessings growing into a worldwide ministry and over 20 physical locations. He’s served in multiple roles of leadership driving the culture of the ministry and developing the future leaders within the church. Additionally, he’s leading the charge to share the experiences Elevation has learned along the way with the hope of encouraging and equipping other churches and pastors.


Leading Second Camp thrives because of the serve team: those who come alive by setting the table for others. If your heart is to honor local church leaders, this is your opportunity to make a national impact through your service.

There are numerous ways for you to serve on a volunteer team at Leading Second Camp. If you’re able to serve for the entire event, we invite you to submit a Serve Team application (and receive free registration) for this event.

Dates to serve:

Tuesday, March 7 (event set-up), Wednesday, March 8 (event & tear down).
