A Man of service

Steve and Jacque Johnson began volunteering at Warm Beach Camp over four years ago. The couple dedicated their lives to service for the Lord and enjoyed working with youth and overseas missions. Steve spent 41 years working with the youth group at Wenatchee Free Methodist/Sage Hills Church. In 2005, Steve and one of his best friends, Ron Bundy, bought a shop where they repaired cars for single mothers and widows, and spent years ministering to hundreds.

Steve’s life was cut short at the age of 73 by cancer. Those who knew him would say he did more for others in those 73 years than most do in two lifetimes. Steve gave every ounce of himself away to others. He was kind, generous, and very hard working.

Warm Beach Camp was blessed by Steve’s service. The work of his hands is evident here. He helped build the new Chinook Cabins, a new storage building at the stables, and helped to remodel 19 rooms of Cascadian Lodge. Steve also helped upgrade the lighting in Cedar Lodge, fixed countless Camp vehicles, and volunteered at The Light of Christmas!

We praise the Lord for the life of Steve Johnson!

She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
