I grew up in River Falls, Wisconsin. During my high school years I worked at a camp during the summer as the Maintenance Director. While working at that camp I met my wife, Angie. During my service at that camp I knew that someday I would want to work in the camping ministry full-time. Angie shared this dream with me. We were living in Duluth, Minnesota when our pastor brought us an application to work at Crescent Lake Bible Camp. We were so excited to have the opportunity to serve at a camp. We started here in December 2001 where I serve as the Maintenance Director. We have three daughters who also serve here with us. They help in the kitchen, with housekeeping, and wherever else they are needed. We are incredibly Blessed to be able to call Crescent Lake Bible Camp our place of employment and our home.
Jeremy says, “Thank you Jesus for working so powerfully in the camping ministry and for letting us be a part of this journey!”
We are honored to be able to serve our Lord by serving others at camp.
We first came to CLBC in 2003 as volunteers teaching water-skiing for three summers.
February of 2006 we became full time missionary staff, teaching water-skiing during the summers and Dale doing Program Maintenance and New Construction the rest of the year, with Desi helping when needed.
We are extremely blessed to be able to use the talents and abilities God has given us to serve our campers and we enjoy being a part of a Christ-centered team here at CLBC. We cannot think of anything we would rather do.
I first came to Crescent Lake Bible Camp during a youth retreat in January of 2008 as the sound tech for Kneel, a worship band from the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area. I spent three years with them playing for CLBC’s summer youth camps, and we really enjoyed getting to know the staff and campers. I began to really appreciate the work God was doing at camp during that time. The changes that could happen in the campers’ lives during just a single week of youth camp were remarkable.
In 2011 I joined summer staff and stayed on as year-round staff as 2012 began, taking on a number of technological projects around camp while also serving as the technical expert behind The Trek’s new online video curriculum.
Abbey “joined” camp staff when we were married in 2013 and has served as the Coordinator for the Canteen and Bookstore’s operation during the summer season. She keeps busy during the rest of the year as a stay-at-home mom to August, the latest addition to our family. Both of us also enjoy volunteering on our church’s worship team when time allows.
