A Teriffic Beginning

The Right Future Campaign concluded in2012 with final pledges being fulfilled by the end of 2015, resulting in a total of $3,536,726.43 raised! This incredible support has led to Epworth Forest Conference Center’s improvements by adding two waterfront lodges, a new entrance road, and a maintenance endowment fund.

Thank you to each of the over 300 donor families who supported this first campaign to reach the future generations for Jesus Christ!

More opportunities are awaiting supporters with a passion and opportunities to prepare ministry encounters through camping for generations to come. Together, we will reach more and more students each year with the gospel of Jesus Christ that transforms not just individuals, but our world through discipleship.
