Lake Maurer Missions July 19-24, 2019
July 19th - 24th, 2019
This summer we have an amazing opportunity to do a missions trip right here in our own back yard at Lake Maurer Retreat Center.
Now you may ask, “How is Lake Maurer a missions trip?” Let me explain. Lake Maurer for those of you who may not know is actually owned by the Northern Missouri Assemblies of God District Council (NOMO Youth.) Since we purchased the campground nearly 50 years ago approx over 30,000 people have come to camp, over 3000 people have given their life to the Lord, with thousands of other filled with the Holy Spirit and called into full time vocational ministry. Lifelong friendships have been started at Lake Maurer, as well as relationships that turned into marriages. Grandparents that once attended camp at Lake Maurer and had their lives forever changed are now seeing their grandchildren’s live changed at the exact same place.
Outside of the attendance at our camps, which is reflected in the numbers above. Lake Maurer has served as a retreat center for countless other denominations and youth ministries over the years. Through that time Lake Maurer has seen a lot of usage, wear and tear and plenty of weather phenomena that has taken its toll on our campgrounds.
We have amazing caretakers that serve the grounds full time selflessly, but cannot do it all by themselves, nor should they have to.
This summer we have a chance to give back to a place that has meant so much to many of us and our churches and youth groups. We have a chance for a fraction of what it might cost to go on an overseas missions trip to come and get a full blown missions trip experience right here in our own backyard.
Along with working at the camp to help restore some of the buildings and structures, we will partner with local churches to do outreach in the evenings, as well as we will have services led by some of our district staff.
I Invite you to come be a part of this incredible opportunity this summer. Spots are limited to the first 100 people that sign up, don’t miss out!
