How did you first discover Delanco Camp?
My friend Ray Brown told me about a great opportunity to get away from Galloway for a week…

What is a dean and what made you want to be a dean?
A dean is a recruiter, among other things. I wanted to be dean this year to have the privilege of bringing great people on staff and to give them an opportunity to unleash their gifts and talents to further God’s work in the lives of teenagers.

What’s the theme for your week and why?
The theme is “NOW.” It’s about God’s desire for His Kingdom to be realized in the lives of believers today, and not just someday. It’s also about focusing on the coming God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven and what that looks like in our families, our schools, our work, our communities… basically our everyday lives.

Why should people come to camp the week you are in charge?
Because God meets us all at Delanco Camp in great ways. I also am very excited about the staff that we have for the week, and their passion for God and for others.

What surprises do you have in store?
I can’t tell you – it’s a surprise!

What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Participating in God’s work in the world!
