UPON THE ROCK STAFF FROM 2000 - PRESENT
Our BOARD OF DIRECTORS!
Husband / Father / Camp Director / Home School Teacher / Volunteer Fire Fighter and EMT
Purpose Statement: My goal is to glorify God through my actions, words and my desire to work with children and their families. I also want to fulfill God's great commission by using my God given ability to serve His perfect will and to try to follow the examples set forth by my personal savior, Jesus Christ.
Wife / Mother / Home School Teacher / Camp Secretary and Treasurer / Camp Program Developer
Purpose Statement: My desire is to serve the Lord with joy and to impact people's lives by demonstrating as much of a reflection of Christ's love as is humanly possible. I feel privileged to play a part in the leadership and management of Upon The Rock Christian Camp. It is a blessing that God has given my husband and I a mutual vision of helping people know God and His principles.
Husband / Father / Owner & Operator of a Home Inspection Business
Purpose statement: My goal is to be conformed daily to the image of Jesus Christ. I desire to have eyes that see the abilities in people that are valuable but not recognized by our culture as valuable. Then be able to show individuals as well as those around us the values of these unrecognized abilities. My hope is that I can meet these goals without trying to glorify myself, or those around me but only the God of the Holy Scriptures.
Wife / Mother / Physical Therapist with a Master’s Degree in Biblical Counseling
Purpose Statement : To use the skills and knowledge I have been given through education, life experience and learning about God, to affect others (including future generations.) The end purpose of this goal is the worship of God.
Husband / Father / Awana Worker / Choir Member / Sunday School Teacher
Purpose Statement: As a born again Christian I enjoy the grace and love of a personal Savior. I also have the responsibility to live in such a way as to glorify God and show the lost, the love God has for them. Part of this relationship includes a life of ministry to Christ, fulfilled in service to others. The most powerful impact I can make on the lost is when I combine a Godly life with a loving witness.
Wife / Mother / Sunday School Teacher /
Choir Member / Awana Worker
Purpose Statement: As a born again believer, I believe my objective in life is to glorify God in all that I say and do. Although that is impossible in myself, with God's help I try to be the best wife, mother and Christian that I can. I believe that the best and most significant impact I have is on my family. Thus, God's purpose for my life is fulfilled in serving them.
Raised in the heart of Upon The Rock, Grace is the newest addition to the Full-Time Crew in La Veta, CO. She serves in many different facets, both in the Camp Office and outlying locations, and is often heard remarking about how she "can't wait for summer!"
A longtime camper, and Full-Time Staff Member, Tina has served as Big Mark's right-hand for many, many years, and continues to dedicate her time to the ministry. All of our campers and Staff know that if they ever need something at camp, all they have to do is ask Tina!
2019 Summer Interns
Although Colorado isn't at all like the sunny California Faith usually experiences, she's looking forward to serving God this summer at Upon The Rock! She enjoys skiing, hiking, warm weather, and spending time with her friends!
After many years of attending camp as a camper, and then Staff, Shem just hasn't had enough! We've loved watching him grow over the years from a kid shooting off homemade rockets in his backyard to a young man...doing the exact same thing.
