Hey, Camp Challenge Family!!!


If you have yet to hear, big things are happening at Camp Challenge right now!

We welcome our next Executive Director, Chase Standefer!!!  Chase will be joined by his wife, Thais, and his two daughters, Evangeline and Emmalyn. They are looking forward to becoming the next stewards of Camp Challenge. Chase and Thais have served many years in young adult and student ministries and are both currently serving as leaders at Bedford First Church of God.  Chase enjoys playing sports and being with his family, while Thais enjoys coffee, fall time, and a good movie. We look forward to seeing them use their experience and giftings to lead Camp Challenge into the future and expand the camp’s mission to develop followers of and leaders for Jesus Christ. Please help us welcome the Standefers as they enter their new role this September!
