Shaun’s Top 5 List :: #2

Why working at Whisper Mountain is living the dream for Shaun: #2 investment in campers!Campers

Along with investment in summer staff as I mentioned yesterday, is his love of relationship building with campers. May seem obvious…we are in camp ministry!! But really!  Shaun lives for the moments that can be teachable, that can make spiritual truths make more sense.  I've been married to the man for over 12 years now and the times that I have seen him most joyful, most full of life, is when he is with teens, loving them with God's love. He may not be the best at what he wants to be the best at, but he sure knows how to love teens!  Isn't that what it's all about?

Shaun’s Top 5 List :: #3

We are back to Shaun's countdown of why working at Whisper Mountain is living the dream…

#3: summer staff relationships

Developing leaders for the future is an exciting aspect of ministry for Shaun!Ss 1With the coming of summer camp is the coming of summer staff! Helping to train and then oversee summer staff is one of Shaun's roles at camp!  For a man who loves to invest in others so that they will invest in others (multiplication pyramid!), this is a beautiful work to be a part of! Sure he loves the goofing off, the dramas and rules videos.  Ss 2

Ss 4 But walking with the staff through their spiritual discovery, helping to equip them for ministry, observing them spiritually invest in others and keep up that investment even after the campers have gone home…that's where the energy, the joy, the reward of ministry is found! 

Two things campers remember from camp: the food and the staff!  Building into the upcoming leaders is a beautiful investment.  Ss 3Oh, and while we are on the subject…if you know anyone (or you yourself!) that would like to be on our summer staff, have them contact us. (Our information will soon be on the web!)  Our hunt for quality people with a love for God and people is about to begin!
