The Stretcher Program is a program designed for spiritual leaders – those that have a strong desire to serve God. It is not just another week of camp and it is not for everyone. The focus is on being a servant as Christ was a servant. During the week you will work closely with the summer staff as well as have sessions with the leadership. It is our desire that you have the mind of Christ… Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus…”
As a Stretcher you will work side by side with our operational staff in serving the campers. As we work we will examine our methods and motives to see if we do indeed have the mind of Christ in service. Do we serve selflessly or do we serve selfishly? Do we serve because we love God or do we serve because we want the praise of men? We will consider all of this and more as we meet together twice each day and examine God’s Word.
If you would like to be a part of the Stretcher program please download a Stretcher application and honestly answer all of the questions. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers… these questions are to help us help you. They will be kept in confidence and will only be viewed by those working directly with the Stretchers. It is our desire to grow spiritually, and it is our desire to help you grow spiritually. If you love the Lord and have a desire to please Him and a desire to grow spiritually… this program is for you!
