Family Camp

Save the Date for Family Camp 2020: July 4 - July 11 with Aaron Couch speaking. More details coming soon.

Family Camp

For the past 130 years, families have come together at Winding Creek Camp to experience spiritual revival and renewal, connect with other families, and enjoy the peaceful and laid-back environment. When you’re not in a seminar or involved in any of the other activities, which are available all week long for all ages, you can visit the candy store, enjoy a homemade meal in the dining hall, enjoy a game of horse shoes, or a round of Frisbee golf.

Reserve a cabin or tent site. Park your RV at one of our sites with electric/water hookups.
Activities for all ages, Great Food, Relationship Building and Worship.
All are welcome at our Evening Rallies, Sunday Services and Morning Workshops.

Children’s Ministries Nursery thru 6th Grade are available during all workshops and rallies.

Meet the 2019 Family Camp Speakers and Worship Leader

Chris Garner has been in ministry for almost 25 years as a student ministries pastor, lead pastor, camp speaker, and missionary overseas in Fiji. He has served most of his years in the Missionary Church Denomination. He currently is leading a Missional Outpost in his local community and is the Executive Director of the Bristol Community Food Pantry serving 400-500 people a month.

His proudest moments have been being married to his wife Melissa since 1997. They have three adult children – Wesley (21), Brenna(20), and Cayla (20). The girls, who are identical twins, both are getting married in 2019. God has led them in and out of many journeys and experiences over the years. His passion is to see the Kingdom of God come alive in our lives and communities around us. Chris has one mode – to challenge us to change and become all that God intends. Chris is our main speaker and will also lead our 9:00 seminar.

Doug Swink is no stranger to our district. Doug has been around ministry in West Michigan for quite some time, whether by involvement at Holland Central or Winning at Home or leading a church like he is currently at Lighthouse in Kalamazoo. Doug says he is serving the greatest city in Michigan, maybe even in the United States, quite possibly the world. 

Doug was born and raised in San Diego, California. He has been married to Shawn for 28 years, and they have three daughters. He enjoys traveling (most recently Israel where he’s known as Jack), serving, and learning. We are honored to have him sharing with us in both the Thursday and Friday evening services at camp. Side note: Doug could easily win a Michael Keaton lookalike contest.

Chris Lehane is our worship leader for camp. He is excited to work with our team and lead us during Family Camp.

Chris has served in ministry for over 20 years in Northern Indiana focused in Student, Young Adult and Worship ministries. Chris is an experienced worship leader having led worship in numerous church, camp, conference and retreat settings. As a worship leader his heart’s desire is to help people connect and experience God in a real and authentic way through worship. He and his wife, Rose, have four daughters: Jordyn, Kara and Madilyn, and Taylor. 

Bart Hall has been in ministry for over 20 years, serving as a youth pastor before his current role of Lead Pastor at Central Wesleyan Church in Jackson, Michigan. He also serves as a hospice chaplain in Jackson, and he is in his second year as director of Family Camp. He has a strong passion for God’s people to live into the calling God has placed on their lives as His childnre.

Bart has been married to Kristy for 20 years. They have two sons, Corban (16) and Micah (14). Their family enjoys games and sports together, along with music and traveling to warm places when it’s cold in Michigan. Bart will also lead our 10:30 seminar, exploring Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.
