Thanks to the overwhelming support of churches and individuals, the financial strain on Daniel Springs is beginning to ease. If donations continue to pour in, the camp will be able to continue changing hearts for Christ in future years.
“I believe the camp is worth it. Not because of the campgrounds, but because of the 54 young souls who professed Christ as Lord this summer, and the twelve who surrendered to ministry. That’s why we have camp. That’s why Daniel Springs is worth the investment,” said Prewitt.
After a time of questioning the future of Daniel Springs, donors have given the camp hope for the future. “We’re not out of the woods yet,” explained Camp Director Jason Prewitt. But things are looking up.
Over the past year, as Prewitt has shared the camp’s needs with churches, many have taken special offerings, begun monthly giving, or increased budget giving.
“It’s been a blessing to see our general offerings increase steadily all year. God is answering our prayers through our local churches,” commented Prewitt. “Many of the offering increase has come through special gifts, and we are so appreciative. Now, however, as we look to the future of Daniel Springs, the most crucial factor will be consistent giving on a monthly or quarterly basis. For the camp to continue operating, we still need to see more churches and individuals partner with us monthly.”
Currently, the general offerings for this calendar year are up nearly 50 percent from Daniel Springs’s budget!
According to Prewitt, “If folks out there have been considering supporting Daniel Springs but are wanting to make sure it’s going to make it before they give, now is the time to invest. The momentum we are experiencing financially is stronger than ever, and we are so close to resolving these issues and moving forward. We just need a few more people to help us close the remaining gap.”
The Daniel Springs board of trustees will meet in September to review the finances and discuss the future of the camp. Individuals and churches desiring to help close the remaining financial gap have an opportunity to show the trustees a positive outlook for the future of Daniel Springs by acting now.
As said before, the camp isn’t out of the woods yet. Help keep the momentum moving forward. Offerings for Daniel Springs should be marked “Daniel Springs” and sent to PO Box 1749, Conway AR, 72033. Online giving is available at danielspringscamp.com/give.
