DONATE - the power of ONE

"There is no such thing as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple with no logical end." – Scott Adams

It’s incredible, isn’t it? Even the smallest object tossed into water will create ever expanding ripples whose effects gradually move far beyond the point where the initial action takes place. We have seen that same effect at work here at Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center – in the lives of students at summer camps, men and women at retreats, staff members at corporate meetings, athletes at team-building events, and children at school-sponsored functions. What happens here, in effect, changes the world.

A message from Dave Roever and Jaroy Carpenter about Operation Warrior RECONnect, and how you can be a part in blessing the lives of all those who come to Lakeview.

That is why it is a core conviction of ours that there is tremendous power in one.

  • One prayer
  • One event
  • One encounter with the Creator
  • One altar call
  • One worship experience
  • One outdoor activity
  • One lodging facility
  • One meeting room
  • One generous act

Through financial donations and prayer support, many have already tossed pebbles into the water so that Lakeview might create a ripple effect for the glory of God throughout the world. We are grateful. We are so blessed to have received the support for Lakeview to become the facility it is today. At the same time, we know that we have not yet realized the full extent of what the power of one can do.

With your help, we can renovate lodge rooms, update facilities, add attractions, and beautify our property to continue the ongoing process of excellence we believe God wants us to provide all who visit Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center. With your help, we can impact the lives of countless people who will, in turn, impact the lives of countless others.

There is new vision for the future of Lakeview. We hope you will prayerfully consider your part. You never know how your actions will impact others. What you can know for certain, though, is that your contribution, big or small, will have the power to create ripples that know no end short of eternity.

Ways you can participate in the power of ONE:
