Mission & Ministry

“A Meeting Place With God”

More than a slogan, Camp Lebanon’s identity has been a “Meeting Place with God” since it’s founding in 1947. Read more about Camp’s story or listen to a word from our Executive Director, Bill “Bobber Bill” Abeler.

OUR MISSION
Camp Lebanon is dedicated to providing A Meeting Place with God to help the Church do the work of Christ.

Church friends and leaders, we are here as a partner and resource for you.  From renting the facility to attending a program (youth, family, men, women) to getting away for a Pastor’s complimentary overnight stay, we are here to serve you.

OUR VISION

Through the “funnest” fun, loving relationships, beauty inside and out, and Truth declared and illustrated, Camp Lebanon guests-both young and old-will taste the delight of being desired by their Creator God.

“Funnest Fun” – the kind of joy that comes when delighting in life according to God’s design.
OUR MINISTRY OBJECTIVES
POWER

Respecting the Sovereignty of Almighty God and the realities of spiritual warfare, Camp Lebanon’s first ministry is PRAYER in and for all facets of Camp’s enterprise.

POINTS OF IMPACT

More than a DESTINATION, Camp Lebanon will be a BASE from which staff and guests will touch the world with the love of Christ.

PROCLAMATION

In a world deceived by and lost in sin, Camp Lebanon’s message will be UNMISTAKABLY JESUS and UNCOMPROMISINGLY BIBLICAL… no matter the cost.

PARTNERSHIPS

As servants of the CHURCH and allies of the FAMILY, Camp Lebanon will seek to forge dynamic partnerships with parents, pastors, and program leaders.

PRIORITIES

In serving the entire church community, Camp Lebanon will above all else love KIDS into the Kingdom, encourage FAMILY as God ordained it, and facilitate GUEST GROUP ministries.

PROVISION

Forever needing to trust God for every provision, Camp Lebanon will operate with full integrity within its means while keeping camp affordable, fully-staffed, and well-maintained. 

OUR BELIEFS & PHILOSOPHY

Camp is for the campers. One person counts. Campers must be shown before they are told.  It’s a “sin” to bore a camper.  We have no “problem campers”, only campers with problems. Discipleship requires loving discipline. Prayer really does change things. An opportunity to commend should not be missed.

OUR CORE VALUES
God-honoring service. Christ-illustrating love. Excellence. Team unity. Celebration of God’s creation. Integrity in everything
OUR FOCUS
The love of Jesus is served here.
OUR STRATEGY

Christ illustrated and communicated in all of camping by a staff of fun-loving, God-honoring servants.
