Meet A Staff Member: Marc Nelson

For Marc, ministry is all about impacting and changing lives for Christ. His first ministry, since signing on at Camp in 1999 to help organize its books and harness technology, has been to serve Christ with the gifts he’s been given. His overriding vision is to bring focus and clarity to Camp’s financial position.  His passion is to research the tools and technologies that will best serve to enhance God’s Ministry. “For me, the many ways in which lives are impacted and changed is confirmation that God is at work here!” Marc said. “And that’s just a neat thing! And knowing that I somehow have had a small part in all of this brings joy to my heart!”
