Favorite thing about Delanco Camp: You can see and feel God’s presence in so many ways.
Elevator testimony: I was born and raised in a family who attended church regularly but never really felt God’s awesomeness until I attended Creation Fest with my friends in 1985. I have been lucky enough to be able to return several times since then (and to see my daughters experience it) and it never ceases to bring me closer to our Creator!

Why permanent staff? I heard they were in need of a Head Cook, I needed a summer job, so I went for it. But actually I saw what working at Delanco has done for my daughter and I am very excited to see what the Lord has in store for me.
I am looking forward to working with such a great team and to see what we can accomplish through God’s love.

What is your fondest memory of Delanco? Since I didn’t actually camp at Delanco, my fondest memory was going to pick Briana up from camp and watching the video of what they did all week. It was great to sit in the back of the Tabernacle and watch the campers reactions to the video.

What is something interesting about you that didn’t come up in the interview? Something interesting that didn’t come up is that in my free time I take pictures of my friend’s band for them to post on their website.

Do you have a hidden talent? My hidden talent must be so hidden that even I’m not aware of it.
