“We welcome special guest speaker Dennis Rainey to the outstanding lineup for the 2nd Annual Backyard Concert and Campout,” said Mark Hancock, CEO of Trail Life USA. “Dennis Rainey is the co-founder of Family Life, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ, and author of over 35 books on manhood and the family. Dennis calls men and boys to step up and lead as representatives of Christ who are strong, pure, and powerful men of character. Dennis embodies the Trail Life vision and we look forward to his participation in the National Backyard Concert and Campout.”

We hope the National Backyard Concert and Campout will bring families together in person and ‘virtually’ across the nation for good food, games, activities, and a live web broadcast, that includes a concert from For King and Country and special guests Daniel Huerta – Focus on the Family’s Vice President of Parenting and Youth; Dennis Rainey; Operation Christmas Child, and more.
