We’re developing a movement where church planting leaders are reproducing healthy churches. Our mission and philosophy comes from Acts chapter 13: Learn more about how to plant a church by clicking here.

What types of camping programs to you have?

Conferences and camps have proven to be one of the best means in the Church’s toolbox to bring about exponential ministry impact. In a simple weekend retreat, Men’s and women’s groups, leadership teams and youth groups are experiencing life change. Campers come to our camps to rest, regroup and refocus while attending programs that invite people of all ages into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, guide them to be fully committee followers of Christ, and equip them to become people who impact the world for Christ.
