Our Values

A Christ-Centered Philosophy

Our staff is committed to give each guest a clear understanding of the Gospel as presented in the Bible. Through a variety of teaching methods, we strive to guide people to study and understand God’s Word as relevant, absolute truth. Our staff are selected based on their spiritual maturity and their ability to model the Christian life in grace and truth. We believe that we serve Christ by serving the people that God has placed in our ministry.

A Guest-Focused Environment

A guest is the most important visitor on our grounds. They are not dependent on us; we are dependent on them. They are not outsiders in our ministry; they are our ministry. We are not doing them a favor by serving them; they are doing us a favor by allowing us to serve them. Our desire is to find out where each guest is in his or her life physically, socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and to help each one to grow in every area for the glory of God.

A Challenge-Based Program

Life is full of challenging opportunities that mold us to become more like the Savior. Our purpose is to provide guests with adventure experiences that lead to the discovery of God’s grace, thereby confronting each person to grow in his or her relationship with Christ and others. We seek to provide a safe environment where each guest can choose to step beyond his or her comfort zone into a new level of learning and growth. Ultimately our goal is to help people trust more fully in God by encouraging them to voluntarily participate in challenging activities.

Coronavirus UpdateSummer cancellations & adjustments

May 8, 2020

Dear Friends of Alpine Ministries,

As you can understand, Alpine is facing a severe challenge from the pandemic. Because of this, a plan to have our normal summer ministry is not possible. Therefore, after much prayer and with heavy hearts, we have decided that we will not be able to hold our 2020 summer Alpine Bible Camp schedule. Our Adventure and Retreat opportunities still have limited availability. Please call to learn more about Adventures and Retreats this summer: 800-806-2180.

This change does not mean that the summer will be void of any ministry or activities. We are prepared to provide alternative summer camp experiences for local churches utilizing our permanent Alpine staff. As our governor updates us, and the guidelines for re-opening continue to develop, we will be available to minister within the environment that emerges. For now, only the Lord knows what the future holds. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook for developments, and sign up for email updates.

We have closed registration for the camp options that are currently offered and we will be processing refunds to those who have already submitted a payment.

Thank you for praying with us and for us as we trust the Lord in these uncertain times. Please be in prayer for our summer staff as they face this disappointing adjustment to their ministry plans. Also, pray for the many lives which will not be reached through Alpine because of this unavoidable cancellation. And pray for God’s special financial provision since the summer is when we receive the majority of our revenue. If you would like to designate a gift for Alpine Ministries, you may do so here.

In His Service,
Dave Holloway
Vice President for Extension Ministries
