Spring groups 2012

by Jonathan Miller - Director of Camps & Retreats

What’s going on with Camps and Retreats these days? Well, let me tell you. My name is Jonathan and I work with the spring and summer camps here at Holsby. This spring season the Lord has blessed us with full camps and a great staff to share Jesus’ love and truth with our guests.


This past week I was talking with a guy named John who has been coming to Holsby for over eight years. He started visiting as a child with his church and now he is back leading his youth group to Holsby, a place where he personally has experienced so much growth and change. John talked with me about how Holsby has been such a blessing to their church for so many years. This year we had the chance to not only have the whole church out but also the youth group. We did the high ropes course, giant swing, “pamper” pole and team building activities. We also had some great sharing and hang-out time around the fire and lots of food and games around the table. A couple of rich and full days!

This year we also hosted our annual group from Tärnaby, which is a 20-plus hour journey up into the north of Sweden. As always, we had a blast as we had many times of sharing where we talked about what a relationship with God is all about. To help you visually we made a short video of the camp. I hope you enjoy it! It’s been great sharing with you how life at Holsby has been the last weeks.

Until next time!

About Jonathan Miller - Director of Camps & Retreats

Aware of it or not, a life with God is something all people deeply desire - the creation meeting its Creator. By God’s grace, as a young adult this longing was fulfilled. I found God waiting for me. My desire is to see people, young and old, satisfy their deepest yearning and come to God. I can tell you a few things about myself. First, I’m a huge fan of my wife Trista, who is the coolest and funniest person ever! She is my gift from God. I have twins Huxley and Hazel with one on the way. Being a papa is a rewarding adventure and it's getting better with every new stage of developement. In addition to this, I can never get enough of sports and adventure. I love playing sports or games that have me running around, getting exercise and having fun with people! I also enjoy hanging out in God’s playground - the great outdoors, lounging with people, playing ‘board’ games, and competing... in anything. On top of this, I love my job here at Holsby! I’m responsible for directing the camps and retreats part of the ministry. I get to go to “work” outside on the ropes course, hang out with youth and adults, teach, go on all kinds of adventures and the list goes on. That’s me!
