1 Corinthians 3:9
"For we are God’s workers, working together."
John Peterson, Keynote Speaker
John is an olympic wrestler from Comstock, WI. He took the silver medal at the 1972 Winter Olympics and the gold four years later. Both times he wrestled alongside his brother, Ben. Even though he is fond of those memories, he says they cannot compare to the joy of knowing the Lord Jesus and living for Him daily. This is something he realized at the age of twelve! Now he enjoys staying active in his community, working with Athletes in Action, and spreading the love of Christ with everyone around.


This year our offering will benefit Operation Purple.

 At OPC,  military kids are offered a FREE WEEK of camp where they connect with other kids, just like them. And purple happens to be the perfect mix of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine Corps red, and Navy blue. In the military world, purple symbolizes all who serve, and at our Association, we know families serve, too! 

Operation Purple Camp has served nearly 60,000 military kids since its inception in 2004, and the memories made last a lifetime. Learn more about Operation Purple by clicking on the logo.
