Over the last century – God has used the concept of camp to draw thousands of young boys and girls to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Over Camp Gilead’s 61 year history, since 1948, countless numbers of boys and girls, children and adults have heard the gospel message inside the walls of our chapel. This chapel has heard the sounds of campers voices singing at the top of their lungs. It has seen that hand rise up as a camper’s heart is stirred to accept Jesus as their Savior.

And tonight…was no different.

Pastor Kevin Hearne shared with campers that as they have come away and “unplugged” from their electronics and equipment, God is calling them to connect with Him! He challenged those that have never had a connection with God to begin that relationship tonight. He encouraged those that have connected with God at some point in their life previously to renew their faith and walk closer with himself.

As the final song played, campers stood to sing and some found their way down their row and to the back of the chapel where they met their counselor. Counselors took campers outside the chapel to talk with them as they did “business with God.”

What a joy it is to be part of eternity in the making!

Thank you God for using such a cracked vessel.

To God be the glory…GREAT things HE has done!!!
