From the Camp Director
I do not do this as often as I should. But, I just want to brag on our Board of Directors. They get very little credit for all that they do and how they serve here at Hanging Rock, they do so without wanting any credit. We have a great group of guys that are serving with humility in a lot of different roles to help Hanging Rock make a HUGE difference in the lives of youth and adults.
I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that our board does and let everyone know that I appreciate their dedication to this important role of Leadership at Hanging Rock.
Just in the month of February alone, we have had board members serve in the kitchen-wiping down tables after Jr. High kids made a HUGE mess. We have had a board member volunteer his time to lead an outreach of this camp- Mission Crossfire. We have had board members faithfully come and serve next to Tom and help him with projects and maintenance issues of the camp, we have board members that are working on our policies, finances and so much more!!! They have taken steps to address and resolve issues in a way that keeps Christ at the center of it all.
I know that our supporters and supporting churches aren't always aware of what goes on behind the scenes and that they don’t get to see all of the different hats worn all throughout the year. I do, however, recognize our board's faithful service. They give time, energy, finances and heart to this service, and for that I am thankful.
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.”
–John 12: 26
This verse from the gospel of John provides us with the clear truth about servanthood: those who serve Jesus must follow Him, and our Father will honor His servant.
You know, serving on the board of Hanging Rock is no easy task, especially overseeing the camp director! LOL! Yet they have accepted that responsibility and remained faithful in service. They serve with grace and turn their eyes upon Jesus, and we could not ask for more.
If you see any of our Board members please thank them for what they do! Here is a list of our board members:
Pat Conder (Second Church of Christ), John Peterson ( Hickman Heights), Jim Morgan (Williamsport Christian Church), Neil Ellis ( Rossville Church of Christ), Forest Tague (Sterling Christian Church), Owen Moudy (First Church of Christ of Covington), Chris Smith (Lebanon Christian Church), John Clausen (New Brunswick Church of Christ), Dave Adams (New Hope Christian Crawfordsville), Brad Hiller (Attica Christian Church)
