Ministry

Outreach

  • Holding home Bible studies to assist local church planting programs.
  • One-on-one discipling of new believers or those searching.
  • One-on-one discipling of believers to help them grow in their faith.
  • Reviving “Pinewood Car Derby” car races.  There would be individual races at churches (potentially about 20 churches) that are associated with the camp, with a Grand Finale held at the camp where all local church winners (and parents) come to compete.  There would also be a time of fellowship with a gospel message being presented at each race.
