Support Raising

We understand that serving at camp involves sacrifice, but it also provides great opportunity! Being a part of this ministry is a blessing, and you have the opportunity to invite others to partner with you in your ministry at camp. We encourage our summer staff to invite ministry partners to support you in your role at camp. This means that they can financially support you while you serve at camp.

1.  You contact people to let them know you will be serving at camp and explain what you will be doing and why. You can do this in person, by phone, email or letters. A combination of all of them is most effective.

2.  You provide them with the opportunity to partner with you by supporting you financially. You can explain to them that their financial support allows you to serve Christ at camp.

3.  You share with them how to partner with you: They send in their support to camp (via mail or online) and designate it to your name – support.

4.  Camp will add your support to your pay, up to the limit shown based on your time of service and position.

Below are several helpful documents to get you started. Please feel free to ask if you have questions about raising support or need more information. You can contact Brian for help, or (585) 535-7832.
