Influencing Church Leaders
Rev. Dan Pickering
I don’t know about you but my life has been marked and guided by some pretty special places. The farm I grew up on, the Canadian lakes I fished as a boy, the woods where I first learned to hunt, the Elmira Wesleyan church where I was saved, the college I attended, churches I’ve pastored and Chambers Camp. Some of those places impacted me through certain stages of my life or over several years, but Chambers Camp has been a part and influence in my life since 1972. Every summer through attendance at Family Camp and service in other camps, my family and I have been privileged and impacted by fellowshipping with friends, sitting under great teaching and making significant spiritual decisions.Our children, and now grandchildren, couldn’t wait for the wonderful days of camp. For us it has become a place of heritage and a place where they can learn that Jesus is an integral part of life! It was at Chambers Camp that I answered my call to ministry and I have no doubt my children have been equally impacted by the influence of that holy ground. I can only hope and pray that our grand kids find the fullness of life in Christ that Chambers helped us find!
