Reflecting the Character of Christ

Brian Lubinski is a Minnesota native, husband, father, and grandfather. He loves outdoor exploration and discovery and is passionate about helping people see God’s fingerprint in the world around them. He uses Scripture to teach about the created world and takes people from the awe of nature to the Awesome One. As a speaker, Brian brings a lifelong passion for people, learning and the outdoors, with over 20 years of teaching experience. As a pilot-biologist, he has spent 10,000+ hours above planet Earth throughout North America, studying creatures and their habitats. As a married couple, Brian and his wife, Mary, are committed to strengthening and encouraging Christians through marriage mentoring and coaching, life-on-life ministry, as well as teaching biblical principles from the podium and the outdoor classroom. Brian became a certified career coach with Crown Financial ministries in 1999 and has been speaking and teaching for over two decades. Brian completed certification in 2017 as a professional coach, speaker and trainer through the John Maxwell Team.

 

Tim Collins serves as pastor of Inspiration Lutheran Brethren Church in Breckenridge, MN. Tim has been a long-time worship leader and has found the most exciting part of leading worship as hearing power of voices lifted together in praise to God. From old time hymns to the latest worship songs Tim enjoys them all, while listening to the wonderful praise of God’s people singing to Him. “Sing the praises of the Lord, you His faithful people; praise His Holy Name.” Psalm 30:4

Check-in begins at 6 PM on Friday, January 22. There is no supper served that evening so please eat before arriving at camp. Check-out will be after brunch on Sunday, January 24.

Worship and Seminars will be on the first floor.  Housing will be on the 2nd floor of the same building. Rooms have multiple sets of bunk beds, so please let us know if you have any special needs. Bathrooms and showers are in each room as well.

High School New Year's Retreat - POSTPONED

        It is with heavy heart that the Board and Staff of New Hope Christian Camp announce the POSTPONEMENT of this event. We plan to reschedule in the spring, so stay tuned for further details.

        Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in our area, and the affect this has already had on youth related activities, we felt it prudent to postpone the event until a later date. Thank you for your understanding, and pray for God's guidance as we seek to follow His will during these times.

New Hope is excited to offer a GREAT opportunity for all current high school students! We are offering a New Year's Retreat. Check-in for the retreat is at 2:00 PM Thursday afternoon, December 31. Check-out time is Noon on January 1, 2021.

 
Registration fee: $75.00
Pre-Registration is required. There is limited space, so register soon. Register HERE.

*See below for COVID-19 precautions taken.

Students will receive GREAT teaching by Alexander Daum of the Todd Becker Foundation. His teaching will center on the theme "Real Faith: Following Christ in a Post-Christian Culture". We will have times of GREAT worship as well. Ahna and Alex Daum will be leading worship at the retreat. There will also be plenty of time for games and activities, and if weather permits, fireworks and a bonfire to ring in the New Year!

Due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus, the Platte Community Student Ministry has canceled the Remedy Drive concert. New Hope has adjusted the schedule to reflect this change. We will start later in the day on Thursday and have a variety of other activities planned for that evening.

I hope you plan to attend this fantastic event. I know you will not be disappointed!

Worship and Seminars will be on the first floor at New Hope Camp.  Housing will be on the 2nd floor of the same building. Rooms have multiple sets of bunk beds, so please let us know if you have any special needs. Bathrooms and showers are in each room as well.

* New Hope will conduct an initial screening 2 weeks prior to the event. There will be a screening, with temperatures taken, at check-in. Temperatures will also be taken Thursday evening. Our goal is to create a safe environment by keeping the virus out of the facility. We believe this space will be safer than most other environments high school youth may find themselves in on New Year's Eve, except home, of course.
