Harvesting the Great Plains: Episode 4 - Camping Ministry


Our fourth episode of "Harvesting the Great Plains" features our conference camping ministry.

Titled “Harvesting the Great Plains," this show draws inspiration from Mathew 9:37, which states “The size of the harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers.”

Each show will feature an interview with someone who is helping with the harvest so we can make more disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The goal is to tell stories of people and churches working in their respective mission fields and to provide information and resources vital to the mission of the Great Plains Conference.

This month’s webcast includes:
  • Sara Shaw, conference coordinator of camping ministries, takes us on a brief tour of the six Great Plains camps, complete with footage from each location.
  • Sara helps us understand the way camps can help start a young person on their journey with Christ.
  • The Rev. Bill Ritter, Blue River District superintendent, tells us about confirmation camp and how it can be a positive experience for kids exploring their faith.
