Welcome to THE ARK Christian Ministries
THE ARK Christian Ministries is a 70 plus year old ministry that provides creative ways for people to grow and develop into world changers by creating communities of grace wherever God leads!
We operate with these core principles:
Decisions are made and teachings are determined by the Bible. We strive to allow Scriptural teachings to impact everything we do.
Ministry incarnational--lived out and centered on the life, ministry, teachings, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. We desire everyone who comes into contact with THE ARK to personally encounter the risen Lord.
We practice discipleship as Jesus did by doing life together in community. Mentoring happens at all levels of the organization.
The focus is missional--locally and globally, following the call of God to reach the world "and make disciples of all nations." (Matthew 28:19-20)

Where did that one go?Larry Lipps
Don't look now, but suddenly it is past the middle of July and we here at THE ARK have only a few sessions of camp left. It has been an amazing summer with over 1000 campers and hundreds of faculty spending some time here learning about God and His relentless PURSUIT of them. We have been blessed with favorable weather. An amazing summer intern staff has worked very hard to make sure the facilities were ready, the activities were staffed, and our kitchen team made sure everyone was well fed. Thanks to all who have prayed for THE ARK and all that has taken place so far.
