What does camp ministry mean to you?
Camp ministry is so important to me because it’s a place where kids and students can experience something out of the ordinary. It allows designated time for kids to develop their faith in a way that doesn’t happen very often. Big life decisions undoubtedly happen for kids and students while they are at camp. Campers realize how to deepen their faith or better develop spiritual disciplines. Many life-altering decisions have been made at camp. The decision to lead a life of purity or the decision to become a follower of Jesus for the very first time, or even the decision to enter into vocational ministry. These decisions happen while at camp. Many friendships are often strengthened while attending a week of camp. Those shared experiences will leave an impression on the hearts of the kids who attend and they are not replaceable. Camp also is a place where kids and students learn the gospel truth (or at least they should be) and they are also challenged to not only live it out when they leave but to share it with others who were not able to be there. There are so many advantages to camp ministry. I love it!
What is your favorite camp memory?
I was baptized at camp when I was 13 years old by my Dad. I remember standing in the lake with fish swimming around my feet waiting for my turn to step up to my Dad who prayed over me and baptized me. It was a wonderful feeling and it’s an experience that I will never ever forget.
What is your favorite dessert?
