A Vision for Ministry: 2017 and Beyond

Director Jamie Fischer will periodically share updates on the LeTCC ministry. Here is his latest Director’s Update for May 2017:

We exist to serve the church and to build up the Kingdom of God for the Glory of God and the Joy of His People.

We delight in dreaming BIG for God and His Kingdom. We want to max out our potential and use every resource He has blessed us with to fulfill our mission. With faith, we are looking to the Father for discernment, wisdom, provision, and direction.

The following are areas we hope to build up in 2017 and beyond.

1. Host Ministry

Quality Improvements: We are improving how we serve our guests every week. We are evaluating everything we do and making improvements. Our facilities are also receiving some much appreciated improvements. (See VI. for more)

Getting the Word Out: We have also begun the process of reaching out to 500 churches in Rochester, Syracuse, Buffalo, and throughout this region, which do not currently use our ministry. These churches are between 1 and 2 hours from our facilities; perfect for a retreat. A new marketing team will soon take the lead in development material and a plan to connect with these churches and others. A new website will be launched in May 2017!

2. Events Ministry

Expand our Children’s and Youth Ministry      

Easter Egg Hunt: We hosted our first annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 8. There were 60+ kids enjoying a day at camp. These children enjoyed games, the “candy store,” face painting, food, a Bible story, and more!

Day Camps and Youth Camp: In 2017 it will be our mission to continue our Children’s Day Camp program and summer Youth Camp to disadvantaged youth. We will raise funds that will allow up to 100 students to join us throughout the summer.

Kid’s Night Out: In keeping with our desire to reach children, we hope to establish periodic nightly events for children throughout the year. We will feed, entertain, and share the truths of scripture with these children. Can we say, DATE NIGHT!

3. Expand our Family Ministry

Easter Sunrise Service: Easter morning we had more than 60 adults join us for a special time next to the lake. It was 62 degrees and beautiful with the sun rising over the hill just as we concluded our special service. Afterward, we enjoyed breakfast together in the Dining Hall and spent the time fellowshipping together and praising our risen Lord.

Women’s Ministry: The Blessed Hope Ladies ministry continues to be a wonderful part of the LeTourneau ministry to ladies. To complement their work, if the Lord allows, we would love to bless women, and especially mothers, with a periodic night out. These ladies would have an opportunity to have some much-deserved fun and be inspired by other women. Child care would also be provided!

Family Fun Day: On June 17th, we will be hosting a Family Fun Day. There will be a delicious Chicken BBQ and family activities throughout the day, including swimming, mini golf, basketball, paintball, and a lot more! Watch for more information.

Family Camp: It is our sincere hope that we will be able to host a family camp week in July 2017. Please check the calendar in May for dates and details…Lord willing!

III. Conferences and Retreats: If the Lord allows, we would love to provide a Pastor/Laymen Conference, foster family conference, a marriage retreat, and youth retreats in 2017/2018.

4. THE WAY Program:

Summer Program and School of Discipleship: Our heart is to disciple young people. We will continue discipling students through our summer program and our year-round young adult ministry, the School of Discipleship. It is our goal to disciple these students and send them out into society better equipped to share the Gospel and build up the Kingdom.

5. Laymen Institute:

Exciting News: As THE WAY School of Discipleship has grown, so has the interest from laymen in our area who are eager to participate in the same classes our students are taking (i.e. New Testament, Old Testament, Theology, and more). In collaboration with pastors throughout the region, we are hoping to see the establishment of a laymen’s institute, in conjunction with our School of Discipleship, for the building up and training of future church leaders and perhaps even pastors and missionaries. Several pastors in our region are hoping to form a counsel to develop and lead this ministry in 2017-18.

6. Renovations, Recreation, and Facilities:

Moving Forward: In January we added a new staff member, Bob Anderson, to be our Project Manager. Bob is leading our renovations and future building projects. This year we are busy with numerous renovation projects including the renovation of bedrooms in the Bethany House and 1st Floor of the Lodge. We are also updating the stage, sound system, and lights in the Tabernacle. Several buildings will have new roofs by the end of 2017. A new waterfront patio with seating for 30 is also being added at the lake. Lord willing we will be adding new recreation options and beginning the process of raising funds for a new multi-purpose facility to better serve our guests and fulfill our mission.
