What’s So Special About CLBC?

If you’ve been around me any length of time, you’ve heard me talk about Crescent Lake Bible Camp in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.

After four decades of speaking at camps across the Nation, CLBC remains my favorite. In fact it’s where I am as I write this article.

The pictures are worth zillions of words and show in part how beautiful the place is. I say in part because like most things in life unless you’ve experienced it you are just kind of guessing.

But there’s more to it than the physical beauty… There’s more to it than the phenomenal staff…

I cannot adequately describe it. I certainly can’t explain it. But it is here.

I’ve seen things happen here that didn’t happen anywhere else. I feel very close to thinking I should take my shoes off when I get on the grounds. I know everything belongs to God but there’s something unique, indescribable, and challenging about CLBC.

And my hunch is it begins and continues because of two men who knelt on the grounds of what would become the camp in a time of economic depression and asked…begged…God to do what was seemingly impossible and He did and He does and He will.

And I am humbled, blessed and excited that I get to be part of the ongoing mi

racle of Crescent Lake Bible Camp.

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
