CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

In this twentieth anniversary year, we look forward to the next twenty years as we implement on our five- year strategic plan, 'Gathering Momentum'. This plan will refocus and refine everything we do to make sure we are following 'The Deer Run Way'- 'as unto the Lord' - with integrity, stewardship, servant-hood, excellence and community. We are looking at everything from the board structure, governance, finances, communication, fundraising, programs, staff, and succession planning to insure best practices in accomplishing our mission to 'provide excellent camps and retreats that inspire a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and strengthen relationships with family and friends.' We are very excited about the future and invite you to join us on this remarkable journey!David GibsonFounder / CEO
