Highlands Ministries Camp for Couples
2015 Dates Not Yet Scheduled
During our Couples Camp we invite ten couples to come for three days of intense conversation, as well as a great deal of fun. The camp is held at the home of Highlands Ministries President, Eric Owens, in Bristol, Virginia.
We will not only talk about how to be a kingdom-building, King-serving family, but we will talk about it in the context of such families. If you come, we may even teach you the secret camp handshake. We hope we’ll see you here!
Who: married or engaged couples
Cost: $149 per couple.
What will we study?
- The biblical view of the family
- The sovereignty of God
- The unstoppable spread of the Kingdom of God.
We will see how God has established families as His building blocks for the sovereign work of building His kingdom. We will talk together, with plenty of time for questions and answers.
Camp will begin on Thursday, June 19th at 4:30 p.m. We’ll get settled, have supper and a couple of talks. Friday we will have four talks and then have another three on Saturday. We will arrange, on Friday evening, an ice cream social and music with the good folks of Saint Peter church. On Saturday night, we like to have dinner together at a local restaurant called The Tavern. This fine dining experience is optional.
When we are not in our more formal meetings, there will be plenty of time for discussion on the topics we are studying, as well as anything else of interest. We will be eating our meals together, playing horseshoes, and perhaps we will even have some fun together. There is no curfew.
We also like to encourage our campers, if at all possible, to stick around and worship with us on the Lord’s Day. We have yet to have any campers regret taking the extra time. Worship is not only the end of our lives, but the most fitting end to camp. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you.
What about childcare?
Children — though we affirm with great vigor that they are a blessing — are not invited, and childcare is not provided. Nursing babies, however, are always welcome.
What about meals?
Your meals during the three days (Thursday dinner thru Saturday lunch) of the camp will be provided. If you have any food restrictions, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
There are many options in either Bristol, Virginia or Bristol, Tennessee. Here are a couple about ten minutes from our meeting location at exit 7 off I-81 in Virginia:
