Summer's here. It's time to kick back, fire up the barbeque and enjoy the sunshine. What better way to do all these things than to go camping? Enjoying the beautiful world God has created is also a great way to connect with Him. Ed Stetzer talks with Art Snead, Camp Director at Lifeway Ridgecrest Conference Center and Rob Ribbe, Director of Honeyrock at Wheaton College, about how the entire family can benefit spiritually from camping.
Art Snead is Executive Director at Lifeway Ridgecrest Conference Center and Camps in Ridgecrest, North Carolina. Art also served as Business Manger and Financial Analyst for Lifeway Conference Centers and Camps. But Art is not just a director at Ridgecrest, he was a camper there when he was a boy and also worked for eleven years as a counselor and administrative director, helping to shape young lives spiritually for Christ.
Rob Ribbe serves as the Director of HoneyRock and as faculty in the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership of Wheaton College. Rob grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
