SUMMER STAFF TEAM 2013

Summer Staff 2013

 

Our summer was incredible! Our Summer Staff came with a desire to draw closer to the Lord and to build Christ-centered, lasting friendships. They served our guests with enthusiasm and with kindness and their efforts were greatly appreciated by campers and retreat guests alike.

In June - August, Trinity Pines had:
  • 45 full-time staff                                                                                                                                                            
  • 8,500 guests
  • 22,749 nights spent by guests
  • 115 different guest groups
  • 615 day guests  
 

 Prayer Note: Please pray that Trinity Pines leaders are constantly looking to see where the Father is at work, so that we may join Him and celebrate his provision.

 

FALL 2013 PROJECTS 

 

As our Volunteer groups prepare to arrive, here is a sneak peek at our latest work project.

 

We are beginning the development of the back loop of Trinity Pines. Below are photos of the initial work on the first of five new lodges. This lodge will sleep 64 guests. It will have 8 rooms with a queen sized bed and 3 sets of bunk beds in each room. Also featured is an outdoor kitchen.

Prayer Note: Please pray for each of the ministries listed above, as well as the continued health and protection of the marriages and families of our volunteers.
   

 WHY CAMP MATTERS

 

We ask for reports of decisions made by the groups we host and though we haven't heard from everyone, the news for this summer so far is fantastic!!!!
 
Of just those reported, our Trinity Pines summer camps saw over 500 decisions!!! Half of those were decisions to trust Christ for the first time.

So grateful for the time, resources and effort that each of the camp leaders, sponsors, churches and ministries have invested to bring their students. So grateful for our staff's commitment to serve the Lord and then others in a less than glamorous ministry role. So grateful to our Lord and Savior, Jesus who truly leads the life change we see through summer camps.  

 

Prayer Note: Please pray that as churches and ministries make plans for Summer 2014, that camp remains a priority and that many lives will be changed as a result.
