The ministry of Silver Spur Christian Camp & Retreat Center is expanding and we need your help! As more and more people are taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings, fun and excitement Silver Spur has to offer, we are faced with a good problem. We need more room! To meet this need we have developed a plan to expand and improve both the facilities and the ministries at the camp. Here are a few of the things we will be doing:
The total cost for this project is $1.3 million. We are able to accomplish all of these things with this very slim budget because of the efficient work crew at Silver Spur and through volunteer labor from various groups.
This project will be done in 3 phases starting with the Dining Facility and Operations Shop. Over $130,000 has already come in. We need $200,000 more to break ground. We would like all of our NextGen Churches to have a part in seeing this ministry expand to reach more lives for Jesus Christ. Here is how you can help right now.
Contact John Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more details. We’d be happy to send you more information.
Next Generation Churches has seen a number of new initiatives and changes over the past couple of years and we are serious about leveragering our network for the purpose of encouraging healthy and reproducing churches and leaders. This was evident at our annual gathering this past month.
It is hard to describe in a short note the impact that this year’s retreat had on our leaders who attended. Our goal was to create an environment for church leaders to bring their teams, for ministry couples to be encouraged, and for relationships to be developed and grow between leaders in our region. From the comments we heard and continue to hear, we hit that target. Mark Young, president of Denver Seminary ministered to our hearts as we journeyed through the Bible story of redemption—we all left wishing for more.
Having the retreat at our own Silver Spur Camp and Retreat Center created an environment that encouraged connection between our leaders. The Silver Spur staff served us well, showing us once again, this wonderful “tool” available to our association of churches. We also presented the plans for a new dining facility and other upgrades that will enhance Silver Spur’s ability to serve our churches and leaders.
I’m very grateful for what the Lord is doing in our current churches and leaders—and am excited about the new churches that are joining with us. I pray that because of our relationships and mutual ministry, we will see our region impacted for the cause of Jesus Christ.
