Work Week/Youth Meeting
May 4 - 8
September 28 - October 2
Since August 12, 1942, the mission statement of this Campground has been to be used “for the continual care of God’s children[,]” “to promote the cause of the Christian faith and to provide a place of worship for persons of the Christian faith and for such persons to meet and worship on the premises[.]” For many years, the sign behind the Tabernacle has said it more succinctly, “All of God’s people welcome.
Gospel of the Kingdom Campground was founded to be a place of refuge for all of God’s children, regardless of color, nationality, or religious background. The campground belongs to the people — for the people. Many who now attend the camp meetings have grandparents and great-grandparents who lived and served alongside Brother Sowders — their blood, sweat and tears are forever engraved into the buildings, cabins, and history of the campground. Others are honored to begin such a tradition for their descendants.
Generations pass, but the work continues. The campground continues because the vision of Brother Sowders continues, inspiring the devotion of new generations.
