Married? How’s it going?

It’s always a good time to invest in your marriage! Married or engaged, looking to learn skills, or in need of significant restoration, this weekend is for you. Watch the video below to hear Dr. Marks give an overview and invitation to this meaningful 2-night investment in your marriage. The next Marriage Conference is April 22-24, info here.

When did your faith become your own? When did you really know Jesus is real?

For me, it was at a Fort youth camp. I’m honored to share my story in hopes that other parents, grandparents, and mentors of young people would give youth the joy and opportunity to attend camp.

Jim Fleming – Passed on to be with Jesus 

Jim Fleming, on staff from 1996 to 2017 as a part of the Operations Team at Fort, met his Savior after a long battle with cancer. Please join us in praying for Jim’s wife, Vicki, and their children and grandchildren. A special tribute from Fort can be found here

Jim loved to get campers outdoors – serving up both breakfast and fun!

Prayer is powerful 

Would you join us in praying for…

  • The Fleming family to feel God’s comfort and peace
  • Winter weekend retreats – for campers to experience the Lord in a new and deeper way
  • The open missionary staff positions at Fort – for the Lord to raise up new staff who will courageously step out in obedience to serve at Fort

We are looking for more applicants, specifically those 18 and older who are seeking a summer of growing in responsibility and leadership, experience living in community, and serving others well. Did I mention how much FUN these young people have at camp in the Northwoods of Wisconsin? See the details hereAvailable Positions: Find a position!

Another need we have is for counselors for Step-Up middle school camp from June 11-17. This is a 1-week commitment for those 17 years of age or older. Volunteer info and application is here.
