Where there’s a will, there’s a way

Leaving a legacy for Camp & Retreat Ministries

For some of us, Eastern PA Conference’s Camp & Retreat Ministries (CRM) has had a profound impact on our spiritual growth and that of our families and friends. That is so true for me that I have searched for a way to make a real and lasting difference for CRM.

Unfortunately, I’m not a rich person. But someone told me I could make a gift to support our Camp and Retreat centers that costs me nothing during my lifetime. How? By including CRM in my will.

By making a bequest to CRM I am honoring Christ by providing resources that will be used to extend his kingdom on earth through our wonderful Camp and Retreat Ministries program. When I am gone, my gift to support this vital, life-changing ministry will live on. It is an exciting win/win situation for anyone.

And it is so easy. You can choose to allocate a percentage of your assets or determine an outright gift to CRM. In either case, it is a very simple process. If you have questions, just contact me to learn more.

You can choose to leave your legacy with one of our four unique Camp & Retreat centers; or you can leave it with the “Eastern PA Conference CRM” to be used where it is needed most or divided among our four sites:

  1. Camp Innabah
  2. Carson-Simpson Farm Christian Camp
  3. Gretna Glen Camp & Retreat Center
  4. Pocono Plateau Camp & Retreat Center

Our camps have impressive Web sites and videos, so that you can see God’s people in action and be inspired by our traditional and specialty camp experiences for people of all ages. Learn about some of those experiences from John Coleman’s accompanying article on this page.

Giving is beautiful. So as you consider your final arrangements, consider giving a gift that will keep on giving and a legacy that will keep on living long after you’re gone.

“If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over.”   (Luke 6:38)
