Partnering for Transformation

Working together to invite people to come to Jesus Christ is the best!

When trusted relationships join in providing transformational experiences, people’s hearts and minds are opened to a gracious God who loves them. Partnering for transformation combines efforts with trusted leaders in providing transformational experiences to connect 1 million people with Jesus by the end of 2027.

This year, we are on a mission to work collaboratively with leaders to structure their time at camp in unique ways to meet their needs and goals, maximizing the impact of transformation. Through these efforts, we will gather people through camps, retreats, conferences, experiences, and events in a way that keeps the path clear to the cross of Jesus Christ.

This will only be accomplished by God’s leadership and our faithful obedience. We look forward to how God will transform lives through Black Diamond Camp, Rainier Camp & Retreat Center, and Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center this coming year. Stay tuned for opportunities to partner with us in transforming lives for Christ.

One poignant example occurred when I was 14 years old. I ...
