Building On 40

Over the past twelve months Inspiration Hills has been host to more than 14,500 guests and more than 1,000 summer campers, summer staff and volunteers. Many of guests respond, "There is just something special about this place!" and "I can't wait to come back again."

Building on 40 is a three year campaign. We need to acknowledge that "unless the Lord builds, the labors work in vain." We also need to celebrate the past work of the Holy Spirit and the main lives which have been impacted. Lastly the physical facilities needs to be addressed as well as the potential spiritual impact in the lives of children and adults.

We need to reflect on 40 years of summer camps at Inspiration Hills, where God has blessed and impacted thousands of lives!


There are four parts that are involved:

#1 - Please Pray

The ministry at Inspiration Hills is dependent on the work and power of the Holy Spirit. Please praise God with us for the past. Thank you to all who have been a part of this ministry over the years and please prayerfully consider supporting these new ministry opportunities by providing a gift of prayer, volunteering, or finances. Any gift of any size is greatly appreciated! Please help build the next 40 years of God honoring ministry. Prayer - Asking God to lead us into the next 40 years.

#2 - Ministry Support and Bank Debt Payoff

We are committed to paying off all the bank debt before beginning new construction. Also, our experience has been that when a large project is presented, the general budget support wanes. In response, a small portion of the campaign funds will be used for budget support which include some of the exciting new ministry opportunities. These include retreats for Single Parents, Youth Leaders, Pastors and their spouses, retreats for elderly and several more.

#3 - Main Lodge Upgrades and Ministry Tools

Recently we have made a number of improvements in the Main Lodge, but more is needed. As the Main Lodge ages, it is important that we maintain it and keep things current. It is in need of new siding on all the sides as well as some repairs to the decks and beams. Upgrades are needed in the kitchen and carpet in a few of the meeting rooms. Also needed are some ministry tools such as multimedia equipment, radio system, weather warning system, and more.

#4 - Multi-Purpose Building and Retreat Center

The Multi-Purpose Building will be a welcome addition to our mission. It will provide a year 'round recreation and play area, which is especially valuable on those rainy days of summer camp and cold winter days. It will have a climbing wall and other fun features. There will be more opportunity for sport camps and training sessions as well. It will open the door to hosting larger group activities year-round.

Part of the Multi-Purpose Building will include a Retreat Center with rest rooms, showers, a lobby, mechanical, and storage area. The Retreat Center will have private and bunk rooms, meeting space and kitchen. The result is a great space fro summer staff and other group retreats. This area is essential for future ministry because of the demand and use of Eaglecrest Lodge. The hope is to locate the building just east and north of the swimming pool. From the front it will look like a single story building.
