Camp's Staff House Build
Only 2 tasks remain to complete the house construction, and the first $3,000 donated will be matched!
Choose "Finishing Touches Matching Grant" below to double your gift.
On June 14, 2016, less than one year from the July 18, 2015 ground breaking ceremony, the new Director's House was dedicated to God's work. With Board Members and guests present we celebrated every gift of time, talent, and treasure that makes this house a reality.
Your generous sacrifice impacts every staff member during the summer and year-round. In addition to housing the director's family, this house hosts trainings, Bible studies, and fellowship times. You have created an amazing space for sharing the love of Jesus.
We thank you for your gifts, and we hope that you will visit often!
Today - There is still work to be done to put finishing touches on the house, and there are always a variety of places to serve at camp. Remaining tasks (to be funded by the matching grant!) include:
- Covering the foundation exterior
- Grading and seeding the construction site
If you are interested in helping to finalize the house exterior, contact Karl Ruether at 330-571-3397
