Chris Rivers

 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 5 years.  This place is such an amazing place and I know this will be an amazing summer.  I am also excited to evangelize to the campers and help them grow in their faith.  I also hope to grow closer to God.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? This summer, God has really showed me the importance of being a true believer in Him. He has made this one of the best summers so far. The campers that have been put in my life have tested me in a spiritual way and helped me grow. I can only hope I have had an impact on their life and can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? This summer was another great one on the Rock for me. God asked me to take a leap of faith and leave my job to come back to Lutherock, it was the best decision of my life. This place truly is my home away from home and God has blessed me with amazing campers and new friendships with the staff. I have found what I truly love in this world, letting the Lord speak through me to all of my campers. Lutherock is really a place apart and will always be my home in the mountains!
