Camp #1 June 20-23, 2021
Family Church Worker Camp
Guest Teacher – Tracee Swank, Leader of Church Doctor Ministries
Guest Preacher – Pastor Todd Stocker

It’s not just challenging to serve in ministry – lately, it seems like it’s just plain exhausting! Trying to figure out how to effectively lead, disciple others, and reach unchurched people is overwhelming at times. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have simple and clear systems and strategies that empower you to equip and send others as you carry out your ministry calling. 
In these session brought to you by certified church consultant, Christian leadership coach, and strategic guide, Tracee Swank, you’ll learn how to effectively multiply the unique gifts God gave you to become more effective for The Great Commission. Simple strategies combined with effective systems can help you grow spiritually and help you effectively invest in others to do the same – in ministry, the marketplace, and in your community.
We’ll provide easy to implement practices and resources you can take with you that will help you discover more joy and freedom in ministry! Our hope and prayer is that you will be energized and renewed for all that God has in store for you – no matter what your ministry setting might be.
Church Doctor Ministries is a nonprofit Christian ministry offering proven strategies to help Christians, pastors, and ministry leaders become more effective at their mission: the Great Commission.

Timing: Sunday evening through Friday lunch. We’ll provide plenty of time for togetherness with family, friends (old and new), and God!

Camp #3 June 27 - July 2, 2021: "Jesus is Trustworthy"
Guest Teacher - Ted Hill, Canadian Lutheran Bible Institute Program Director
Guest Preacher - Dr. Russell Lackey
Guest Musician - Christian Hoff

In an age of much complication, evil, and frantic activity, it can be easy to wonder how it is possible for light to not be overwhelmed by so much darkness around us. Jesus was never rattled by accusation or confrontation; Jesus never gave up on the disciples who didn’t seem to get what Jesus was about; Jesus never lost interest when it seemed people were trying to use His notoriety to gain something for themselves; Jesus never succumbed to the pressures around Him. In the midst of what would definitely defeat me, He was compassionate, spoke with wisdom, taught with weight and eternal substance, proclaimed with joy and engaged with love. It boggles my mind what Jesus did and what Jesus still does. We will walk through some of Jesus’ parables, miracles and challenges to the disciples, religious leaders and gentiles to uncover how beautifully trustworthy Jesus is in our lives today!

Camp #4 July 3-9, 2021: "God's Promise, Abraham's Faith - Walk Through the Life of Abraham)
Guest Teacher - Pastor Dave Wollan
Guest Preacher - Pastor Nathan Hoff

From his initial call and departure from Ur to the miracle birth of his son by Sarai and his journey into the land promised by God, Abraham’s life story is full of unexpected changes, hardships, and miracles. This week, come and journey through the life of Abraham. Dave Wollan is a pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Hutchinson, Minnesota. 

Camp #5 July 10 - 16, 2021: "The Light of Christ in Our Homes"
Guest Teacher - TBD
Guest Preacher - Pastor Julie Smith
Guest Musicians - Milt & Andrew Scott

In a climate of constant fear of attack from church authorities and governments, the original Protestants made parents House Bishops and the Holy Spirit’s primary instruments for handing on faith to their children. They have left us many resources that can still be used today: hymns, catechisms, collections of sermons, and the tradition of the common priesthood in which all Christians are expected to read scripture. These resources can also be applied in the present in new ways. Whatever the state of our churches and governments, preaching God’s Word in the home to the family is essential. This week will help turn this fact from a burden into a great freedom. 

Camp #6 July 17 - 23, 2021: "Life's Lessons from the Bible's Flyover Country"
Guest Teacher - Pastor Paul Cross
Guest Musicians - Milt & Andrew Scott

This week we will highlight some of the more obscure episodes from Scripture, the folks involved, and what we learn about the nature of God. Paul Cross is the senior pastor at Atonement Lutheran Church in Fargo, Minnesota. He is a gifted teacher and preacher who has traveled around the country to various speaking engagements. 

Camp #7 July 24 - 30, 2021: "TRANSFORMED"
Guest Teacher - Bill Yonker
Guest Preacher - Brian Spahr
Guest Musicians - Swen & Dean

“DARE to be different, DARE to make a difference,” Romans 12:1-2


Jesus causes transformation. Through the power of the Gospel and with the presence of the Holy Spirit, we are made brand new and changed to live different kids of lives than the ones who are simply of this world. What does it look like for a person to have their life directed by the Holy Spirit? How different would they look? What differences could they make?
