As quickly as our calendar in 2018 is moving, the CRC staff is moving faster! Each week we have the joy of welcoming groups to our wonderful facilities. With each group that CRC hosts, ministry is happening! Lives are being restored in terms of physical rest & spiritual renewal. Lives are also being challenged & encouraged to go forth & redeem their sphere of influence as individuals return home. Please be praying for the camp staff so that we may be encouraged & continue to serve joyfully without grumbling & complaint.
Pray for Sharon Engle, our Development Director, & newest staff member. Pray that Sharon may be an example to others as she seeks to demonstrate how the body of Christ can support each other in order to present a restoring hope through the joy of giving and trusting our Heavenly Father with all we have!
Pray for Mindy Palm, our Food Service Director. Pray that Mindy serves well as she creates menus for our guests to enjoy. Pray that she may lead the way in hospitality as she invites our guests to enjoy a meal seated around the dinner table with friends & family. May the dinner table be an invitation to see and enjoy the company of those around us!
Pray for Cheryl & Amberly Zimmerman, our wonderful House Keepers. Pray that the may see their job as more than cleaning rooms, folding laundry, & collecting trash but that they know they are creating atmospheres where rest & sleep can happen in the bedrooms, where conversations can happen in the lounges, & where teaching can happen in the meeting rooms!
Pray for Matt Sieber & Jacob Henson, our Maintenance & Grounds team. Pray that they don’t just fix & maintain buildings & equipment at camp but that they may practice the subtle art of pushing back against our broken world of sin. By maintaining our grounds & keeping buildings in great condition may they show those who enter CRC that our lives don’t have to be chaos but that we can have order as our Creator orders our Universe!
Pray for Esther Bashore, our Reservations & Office Manager. Pray that she may be a positive voice to all who call the office. In a world where customer service lines are tedious & mundane, pray that Esther may bring life to all conversations as she believes in the ministry of CRC & has a foundation of hope based on the Kingdom of God!
Pray for CRC’s Board of Directors. Pray for discernment & wisdom as they partner with the staff to help guide the camp forward. May their involvement & guidance be an example to others of what can be accomplished when Christians are moving in the same direction with the same goal, which is to ultimately make the name of Jesus of known so that others may faithfully walk in obedience to him as Lord & Savior!
Lastly, pray for me. Pray that I may lead well while remembering the legacy of individuals & families that have worked so hard over the years to make a CRC a holy ground, where sacred moments happen throughout the year because people meet Jesus & form lasting relationships.
CRC greatly appreciates your prayers!
With the addition of Sharon Engle to our camp staff, Bud Wagner (former Executive Director) will also be volunteering & partnering with Sharon as a collective effort is made to significantly reduce the camp debt over the next few years. We are excited & grateful for his involvement & that Bud still has a desire & passion to see CRC grow & reach lives.
