Why I Joined God At Kenbrook
As I was recently sharing with the pastor of a local church that my family and I had just moved to Kenbrook from Arizona, he gave me a strange look I have seen a few times since arriving like, “What were you thinking.” He said, “We don’t get a lot of people here from Arizona”, and then he laughed.
Even though there are some significant differences in weather and geography from the Southwest to Pennsylvania, when we were considering making the move, it was very obvious to my wife Melissa and me that over the last 60 years God has been at work changing lives at Kenbrook. It was evident to us that there have been a large number of people that have really cared enormously for Kenbrook either as guests who were impacted here or as people who invested their time, money and energy to make Kenbrook a place where others could be transformed by God.
This is why we are excited to join God in the work he is doing at Kenbrook.
If you are considering coming to Kenbrook as part of a retreat, as the leader of a retreat, or as the parent of a summer camper, there are several reasons for you to be excited about Kenbrook as well.
I am sure you are aware that the potential for having lives changed by getting away to a unique setting is immeasurable. During the history of mankind back to Jesus and earlier, people have been changed and encouraged by God when they have taken time to get away from their normal life and expose themselves to some new possibilities and relationships.
One of our staff members recently had a guest share with him that he had come to Kenbrook for a weekend with major parts of his life falling apart. This guest was able to find comfort from connecting with other guests and grow closer to a family member that he brought with him to Kenbrook.
If you are a business leader or leader of an organization, Kenbrook is a great place to bring your people for teambuilding activities. Most of us are open in a unique way to change and growth when we get away from our normal schedule and surroundings to have others around us who will encourage us to face our challenges with courage.
