Calling young leaders

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12 NLT

Young leaders, please jump in and lead. You are needed and wanted in the ministry of Warm Beach Camp. Feel free to speak into my life, and the lives of staff and campers. Please address the issues of the day through Jesus and bring lasting good. You are welcome at the table and around the campfire. Your influence is needed. Please don’t let people older or younger than you scare you off.

As you lead, please remember to set an example for all of us following Jesus. Let your words be helpful and useful. Please don’t just sound off with the latest opinion of the moment on social media. Consider your words and the impact of them. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Please use all avenues of communication to lift up Jesus and to encourage the world.

Your communication, creativity, and understanding of how to connect to people today is amazing. Thank you.

Please think about how you live out your faith. Be genuine and authentic. Keep the good news of Jesus in front of us always. Challenge us to reach out and stretch to help others in a broken and confused world. Live with courage. Do not be defined by fear.

Let your love, faith, and wholesomeness define your life.

At Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center, young leaders discover, explore, and launch into the adventures God has for each one. Life changes here. Thank you, young leaders.

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. 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 ...
