Campmeeting takes us back to a simpler time; just good old-fashioned worship of God under the 100 year-old open arbor with hymns like, “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder,” “Revive Us Again” and “Love Lifted Me.” Camp Meeting affords us the opportunity to worship and to teach our children to worship in the same place our ancestors did, in the same way. We can go back to a single, uncomplicated time and place and always know that God is with us and He loves us.

Today many people believe the usefulness of the Camp Meeting has passed. They consider it an old mode of operation that needs to be put to sleep. We strongly disagree. Instead of allowing the Camp Meeting to die we should renew our efforts to bring it to new life. Far from being a dried relic of the past, Camp Meetings still provide the opportunity for many people to hear the message of salvation and scriptural holiness.
