A Place Unlike Any Other

7/27/2015

Throughout its years of ministry, Lutheridge has been used by the Lord to  touch the lives of many in profound and lasting ways. Camp is a place where campers can forget who they pretend to be, and remember who they truly are. Camp is a place free of judgment and full of “cool kids” who achieve this “cool” status by being imperfect, weird, loving, and accepting. Camp is a place apart from the world and a place truly unlike any other. This is no exception for Outdoor Adventure Program camper Victoria Deal, of Hickory, North Carolina. With her first trip to Lutheridge taking place when she was only ten days old, she has seen the impact the camp has on individuals and has experienced that impact personally. 

In her confirmation faith statement, Victoria says, “At first it was just fun and a place away from home, but it later became a place where I was surrounded by God and a place that made my relationship with him grow.” Victoria placed “Lutheridge counselors” on a list of people she thanked for helping her learn more about the love of Christ. Lutheridge rejoices in the opportunity to be a part of Victoria’s faith story, for it’s our mission to “provide places set apart to inspire and empower all in Christ’s love.” Thank you, Victoria, for allowing us to be a part of your story. 

If God has used Lutheridge, Lutherock, Luther Springs, or Lutheranch to “inspire and empower” you in Christ’s love, we’d love to hear from you! Contact Kara Beck at kbeck@novusway.org.
