Donors who give $250 or more in a calendar year to support Mount Carmel Ministries are called Proclaimers. Proclaimers become voting members of this ministry and can take part in the Annual Meeting held onsite each summer the first weekend in August. As a Proclaimer, you receive regular ministry updates through a special newsletter called the Proclaimer’s Voice.
Members of the the Board of Trustees are elected by active Proclaimers and provide direction and governance for the ministry. Through their faithful support the ministry has grown and continues to hold forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ through camp weeks, retreats, worship, and the Daily Texts. The camp motto is “Jesus Only,” going back to its founding in 1938 by the Lutheran Bible Institute of Minneapolis. Now independent, Mount Carmel continues to serve generations of families, individuals, and others hungry to share in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
