Alpine Couple's Escape 2020

Take a break from routine and ESCAPE with your mate!

Soak up God’s word, fellowship with other couples, and extra time with your spouse.

Speaker: John King

John King retired in July 2018 as the Senior Pastor at Johnston Chapel Baptist Church in Princeton, WV, the church where he was saved as a child and called to preach as a teen.  After completing Bible college and pastoring churches in three other states, he returned to Johnston Chapel, where he ministered for over 26 years.  He and his wife Jeanie have been married for 48 years, and rejoice in God’s gifts of three daughters and eight grandchildren.  John and Jeanie have served together in ministry for 47 years, 43 of those in pastorates in North Carolina, Florida, Indiana and West Virginia.  John also served for two years as an instructor and Dean of Graduate Studies at Appalachian Bible College, while Jeanie served for 12 years on the ABC staff.  He earned a Th.B. from Piedmont Bible College, an M.Div. in Pastoral Ministries from Grace Theological Seminary, a Th.M. in Systematic Theology from Grace Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry in Church Management and Leadership from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Dear Friends of Alpine Ministries,

While we are not holding our day camps and resident Bible camps, we are continuing with our Adventures and Retreats programs on a limited basis. Due to the uncertainty of the summer, we made the decision to not hire any seasonal staff. However, with our full-time adventure staff and occasional help from a few guides who are nearby, we are able to facilitate groups up to 50 people.

We are following the operational and sanitization guidelines set by the state of West Virginia and the CDC. We are continuing to monitor these guidelines and to implement changes accordingly.

Since we are operating on a smaller scale, the calendar is quickly filling. Call now to check availability and schedule your adventure trip or retreat. We are also planning to run a full Gauley Season this September-October. Book your trip on the "The Beast of the East": 304-877-6427.

In His Service,
Dave Holloway
Vice President for Extension Ministries
