I am grateful for… 

  • God. He has been showing His faithfulness and drawing me closer to Him. 
  • The generosity of others. People have been supporting the ministry with a level of generosity that is so encouraging through this time. Thank you! 
  • The Lights of Christmas: “A Drive-Thru Christmas” in 2020. It has brought encouragement to so many. It is quite likely that more people have come this year than ever before. Wow! It has brought provision to Warm Beach Camp Ministries. 
  • Black Diamond Camp and Rainier Camp joining the ministry of Warm Beach Camp. This gift of ministry was unexpected. It is exciting to see what God is doing. We give Him praise! 
  • The staff and volunteers that do the daily work of the ministries. So many have had to find other part- or full-time work during this time. Everyone is serving with such commitment and enthusiasm. What an amazing team of people! 
  • The Warm Beach Camp Ministries Board of Directors. God has been giving them courageous wisdom during this season. 
  • To be anticipating ministry on all three campuses in 2021. While the team expects the winter and spring to be quiet, they are planning on a summer of re-emergence in faith. 
  • The ministry we have been able to keep doing during this pandemic; School at Camp (Day Camps), Horsemanship LessonsTherapeutic Riding Lessons, and ministry to military families. 
  • To be praying and sharing. Let me know if there are ways I can pray for you. 

Giving thanks to God for all the work he has done at Warm Beach Camp Ministries and the work He continues to do through the staff and donors.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. 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 ...
