Christian Emphasis - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

Christian Emphasis

Christian Emphasis Team

The YMCA Christian Emphasis Team invite you to connect with other believers, meeting regularly throughout the year to share in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The team provides monthly prayer table times, distributes bibles and other Christian resources in order to edify, exhort, and strengthen our members, guests, family and friends. If you’d like to be a part of the Christian Emphasis Team, contact Grant Brown at 812.491.7726 or

Bible Study

Spend some time in the word with us. These bi-weekly studies are a great opportunity for learning and fellowship. Led by local pastors as well as our own Director of Christian Mission, Grant Brown, there’s no registration necessary. Just come as you are.

Chaplain Program

Our YMCA Camp Carson chaplaincy program during this past summer session saw 70+ Chapel sessions taught by local Pastors in addition to staff support and a consistent representation of Jesus’ life and example throughout the summer. Pastors were able to stay on site during the week and serve alongside their families. We’re thankful to serve Camp in this way! We’ll be back next summer and engage even more Pastors as Chaplains. To see how you can get involved, contact Director of Christian Mission, Grant Brown, at 812.491.7726 or

Pastoral Memberships

The Y is committed not only to our local communities, but to our faith communities as well. Serving as a pastor in a local church can be stressful, and we recognize that. We are here to help by providing clergy membership subsidy and services, giving you, the pastor, a place to come and connect with others, rejuvenate your spirit, or simply to spend quality time with your family.

How can you get involved?

As a pastor, our faithful friends can:

  • Join the Y to restore your spirit, mind, and body.
  • Enjoy respite stay/rental at YMCA Camp Carson during camp’s off-season or help at YMCA Camp Carson where you and your family can stay while leading devotionals in the chapel.
  • Participate in Lunch & Learns for your congregation focusing on Health & Wellness topics.
  • Volunteer to minister to YMCA members and staff.
