We had an incredible camp season this year.  The Lord gave us 12 salvations, and 3 rededications.

Thank you to all of our directors for your service to our youth. Kamp Keirsey would not be able to carry out Gods mission without the cooks, lifeguards, nurse, summer missionaries, counselors and other staff. Thank you all for a great summer.

 KAMP KEIRSEY LIAISON PROGRAM

li·ai·son . A person who acts as a link to assist communication or cooperation between groups of people.

Here is how the program works: One person from each church will act as the Kamp liaison to promote Kamp activities, distribute Kamp news and information, recruit workers for specific projects, and encourage the other church members to take an active role in our association’s Kamp. We are truly blessed to have our own camp and I believe this program will help unite ORBA around its historical Kamp. So far we have 16 of our 30 churches represented. If you would like to represent your church please call me at 660-679-1004.

For His Glory Alone!
