The camp committee operates under the leadership of the overall Midlakes Baptist Association Executive Board. The camp committee meets regularly throughout the year to plan and prepare for camp. The committee is made up of members of churches in the MLBA. Each committee member must be prayerfully considered and voted on before joining the committee. Other leaders and visitors are more than welcome to attend committee meetings, they simply will not have a voice in official voting business.
Our current Camp Committee is made up of these wonderful leaders:
Ezra Piper (Berean Baptist Church of Bolivar)
Sarah Spurgeon (First Southern Church of Stockton)
Judy Coppedge (FBC of Bolivar)
Other leaders that are a part of meetings, but not officially on the Committee include:
Tim Cossins currently serves on the MLBA Board as a Youth Ministry Chair.
Bre Piper currently serves on the MLBA Board as Children’s Ministry Chair.
