What is Gauntlet X?

Gauntlet X marks ten years of Fuse summer trips and this is not the one that you want to miss. Roll to the beach with a few thousand of your closest friends, kick it by the pool, and spend some time learning from Pastor Perry Noble and Brad Cooper. Also bring sunscreen, definitely do that. In short, have the best week of your life.


The early bird rate for Gauntlet X is $325. The cost will increase to $375 and then $425 in the coming months. The cost for volunteers is $100.

iPhones need to be plugged in to charge, and branches must be connected to a vine in order to produce fruit. In the same way, we need to be connected to Jesus to discover our

purpose and joy. John 15 says that God is the gardener, Jesus is the vine, and we are the branches. But what does that mean?

Join us at Fuse this February for our Connect series to find out what it looks like to be connected to Jesus!

Meet the Core Team for Myrtle FUSE

Johnathan Foster - Myrtle Beach Fuse Pastor

Johnathan is the Fuse Pastor here at our Myrtle Beach campus and has been here since February of this year. He was born and raised in Traveler's Rest, SC until the age of 7 when he moved to Anderson, SC. Johnathan began attending Fuse in 7th grade where he fell in love with playing Knockout and Ping Pong at Fuse every week. Over the years, Johnathan joined a Fuse group and began to do life with other students. In the summer of '08 at the Gauntlet, Johnathan surrendered his life and plans to Jesus completely. After attending college at Clemson for two years, Johnathan surrendered to Jesus's calling on his life and stepped into full-time ministry in August of 2013 at Newspring with the same ministry he attended in 7th grade. Johnathan married the stunningly beautiful Kami Foster on June 27th, whom he met at FSKO in Anderson of 2013, and is smack dab in the middle of God's plan for his life. #500
