Camp Pastor

"Runks" Runkels


Runks has a passion for Christ and a passion for people. A true evangelist at heart, he has a deep desire to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to this crazy world we’re living in. Runks is a master at
communicating the Gospel with clarity, relevance, and depth. His passion for the Gospel, knowledge of the Word of God, and off the charts energy will inspire your students and adult to love Jesus, follow
Jesus, and share Jesus!


He absolutely believes that the power of the
Gospel is still the power of Gospel and no matter how crazy antagonistic our culture may seem to be towards the Gospel it is still the power of God for salvation for all people. So Runks, in his own unique way, unashamedly and refreshingly preaches the Gospel with passion and relevance. However, Runks’ message is not just about getting saved (trusting Christ), it’s about being saved (finding your identity in Christ), living saved (growing in relationship with Christ), and getting more people saved. etc. etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum, Jesus saves y’all!! Nothing else matters!

Runks was a Youth Minister for 7 years and in 1998 began traveling the country sharing the Gospel to teenagers, college students, and adults.  He holds a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and resides in Levelland,  Texas. He and his amazing wife Joanna, have two awesome grown kids.

Worship Leader

Joel Vaughn

 Joel Vaughn grew up pursuing one passion. To create music and lead people to Christ. He started out as a worship leader and then stepped out to pursue full time music ministry. He started writing & recording his own songs and shared the stories behind them at concerts and worship services several nights of the week while he was a college student.


People began to respond to the message He was sharing. Before He knew it he was touring consistently and his music was being played nationally on radio stations as an independent recording artist. In 2015 He was nominated for “The Next Big Thing” award by New Release Today’s We Love Christian Music Awards. The following year He signed his first record deal and things took off. He has consistently had hit songs chart on Billboard during his career with his highest position reaching #11 with “I Look To You” in 2019 on Hot AC and #45 overall on Billboard Christian airplay. Other notable hits like “Pray It Up”, “Wide Awake”, and “As You Are” also saw Billboard success as well. With an ever changing music industry


Joel is an innovative artist that writes catchy hooks that are fun and engaging songs that share deep theological truths to the listener. He has carved out a path in his genre and has made it clear that he is here to stay. For more information about Joel visit
