Senior Saints Fall Retreat 2020

Retreat to the colorful Appalachians for an October weekend in God’s Word and music, fellowship and activities, dining and sightseeing. By the time you leave, you will have new friends and an encouraged heart.

Speaker: James Johnson

Pastor James Johnson grew up in a rural, small town setting near Rocky Mount, Virginia. He married his high school sweetheart, Patricia Quinn, in 1971. They have two daughters and 4 grandchildren.

Pastor Johnson surrendered to the Lord’s call to full-time pastoral ministry at the age of 17 and has now been preaching the Word for over fifty-three years. He received a Bachelor’s degree from Piedmont Bible College (now Piedmont International University) as well as a Master’s degree and some doctoral studies from Bob Jones University. He currently serves as Pastor at Harper Heights Missionary Baptist Church in Beckley, WV. Pastor Johnson views his opportunity to speak at the Senior Saints Retreat as a distinct honor and looks forward to ministering the Word. He and Patricia have always felt a close affinity to the seniors that they have ministered to and were privileged to serve as the director of a Senior Citizens ministry called Jolly 60’s early in their pastoral ministry.

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
