From the Ground Up

Cultivating Faithful Leaders for a Sustainable Future

CTA Image for Our Mission

Be the Bellwether. Since the Middle Ages, shepherds singled out one ram in a flock to wear a bell and indicate where the flock is going—the Bellwether. A bellwether has come to signify a herald of what is to come. We pray that through this new camp, retreat, and education center, and in each of our lives, we will be bellwethers of Christ’s redeeming and reconciling love.
