Join us in August for a truly faith-based Family Bible camp this summer next to the Glacier Mountains in northern Montana.
Mjorud Family Bible Camp, an evangelistic, prayerful, Bible-based ministry, came into being during the Charismatic Movement of the 60’s & 70’s, with the first one being in the summer of 1969. Although not affiliated with the AofG, it found a home at Glacier Bible Camp; an Assembly of God Campground in Hungry Horse, Montana. There, it grew from a small group of about 70 people to as many as 1,000, with an average attendance of about 600.
Mjorud Camp has operated for years without charge to the hundreds of diverse families who have attended and continues to do so. Families received housing, three full meals a day, solid speakers, prayer, music, sports, hiking, fellowship and rest at no cost. Nightly, the ministry made a request for free will offerings. Every year, by God’s Grace, they met their budget. Yet, there has never been pressure to donate.
Twenty years ago I told Pastor Mjorud that if not for this camp, my family wouldn’t be able to afford going to any family Bible camp. He responded, “That’s why we do it.”
The camp has historically had a strong conviction that we are to believe and proclaim that the whole Bible IS the Word of God, and then to actually DO God’s Word in our daily lives, homes, churches, businesses and governments.
The results have been manifold as many came to the reality of being Born Again and experienced the powerful touch of the Holy Spirit.
After 30 years under Pastor Mjorud’s leadership, he and the rest of those in leadership retired from the camp ministry in 1998, passing the reigns on to new and separate ministry. Pastor Mjorud went to be with our Lord Jesus the next year. Then, 9 years later, some asked about having a 10 Year Reunion. After praying and consulting with many that had previously attended the Camp, several members of the former leadership agreed and the Camp was held in 2008. God richly blessed each of us.
Mjorud Family Bible Camp is scheduled again this summer, August 4-9, 2018, in Hungry Horse, Montana. The Family Camp continues to rent the Glacier Bible campground for the week, where there are cabins, lodge’s, camping spaces, a cafeteria, and large sanctuary available, as well as playground, miniature golf, and close proximity to Glacier National Park.
The program format is basically the same as always: classes, music, sports, prayer, etc. for all ages with Holy Spirit anointed speakers and leaders, having liberty in the Spirit for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit to operate – and wonderful fellowship!
Most importantly, it is a chance to pull away from the business of the world and spend precious time in worship, prayer, discipleship, and fellowship. We’ve always come away blessed for having taken the time.
So in the words of the organizers, “Come and renew acquaintances with old friends – and/or make new ones. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Expect great things from our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ as we gather to honor, worship, and learn from Him.”
Mjorud camp is Christian, evangelical, and non-denominational, and praying fervently for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit this year. Visit – http://mjorudfamilybiblecamp.com/ – to find out more or to register.
