Brian Shonka

 You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me.  I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutherock near Boone, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 700 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

 I have been on staff for 3 years.  I am excited to be on staff this summer because third time's the charm, right?  Also Jesus and the beauty of camp has called me back!


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? God has been at work in my life this summer by teaching me to live in the moment. To become detached from my outside worries and problems and life for the joy of my campers.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer has definitely been my most rewarding of the three years working at Lutherock. My faith has been strengthened through this amazing staff and the campers that inspire me every week. I have treasured my time here at camp and will carry these experiences with me the rest of my life.

To provide Brian with salary, room, board, and training, it costs over $2555 for the summer. We know this is worth it as it is the summer staff that have the greatest impact on the campers. We are inviting you to invest in their training. By investing in them, we will send you updates and post updates on this webpage about the ministry they are involved in and how it is impacting their life. Your investment in them frees other funds to provide scholarships and improve the program equipment and facilities.The cost of $2,555 breaks down as follows:

  • $555 provides for 1 counselor's training ($47,175 total cost)
  • $2000 provides for 1 counselor's salary
