Helen Maroulis

At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Helen Maroulis became the first ever American to win a gold medal in women's freestyle wrestling at the Olympic Games. She wrestled four matches in the preliminaries before defeating Japan’s Saori Yoshida, 4-1, in the Olympic finals. Helen had previously lost to Yoshida twice (2011 and 2012 World Championships) by pin. Yoshida had not lost  a World Championships or Olympic match in 16 years. Helen credits God for her victory and the journey. Her mantra on the day of competition was “Christ is in me, I am enough”. She believes God uses wrestling as a tool to shape her character and faith. The devastation from failing to make the 2012 Olympic Team also motivated her these past four years.

DAN RUSSELL is recognized as the "real deal " in the wrestling world.  He's a four-time NCAA champion and four-time Academic All-American.  In 1995, he was named the 'Unofficial Champion of the world' after winning the Ivan Poddubny Tournament - the second U.S. athlete to ever do so.  Dan was the 2004 Olympic wrestling coach for Guam and Olympic Solidarity Instructor for Palau and Federated States of Micronesia.

2017 NW FCA Camp Band - The Neverclaim

 The Neverclaim was birthed out of a desire to see people come to a real encounter with God that would inspire life change. “When people encounter God they can’t help but be faced with two realities. 1) I am loved far beyond what I have ever imagined. 2) This love is worth giving all of myself to. This band wishes to lose claim of our lives and surrender our purpose to God,” says lead singer and songwriter Jeremiah Carlson. “We truly see our music simply as a tool to inspire a generation to live powerful, selfless lives inspired by intimacy with God.”

Since their beginning in 2007, The Neverclaim have quickly grown into a band that is hard to forget. Their passion to worship God is encased in music that targets the heart of every listener. Like anthems sung in times of reformation, The Neverclaim’s songs are meant to become anthems of revival for this generation. Having shared the stage with such bands as Third Day, Kutless, Hawk Nelson, Addison Road, and Shawn Macdonald, they have quickly made a name for themselves in the Christian Music scene. The Neverclaim was the worship band at the 2007 & 2008 FCA Regional Camps in Forest Grove, Oregon, and the 2011 & 2012 NW FCA Sport Camps in Nampa, Idaho!
