CHANGING LIVES THROUGH YOUR GIFTS

Luther Crest Bible Camp spreads the good news of Jesus Christ to thousands of people each year! As an extension of the Lutheran Church, we are proud to serve a multitude of denominations and member congregations and their members!

Our work is based on two income streams
• Our fees for our summer camp, retreats, and events
• Your gifts!

​Almost 50% of our income needs come from individuals, congregations, families, businesses, and corporations. You are so important to the life and breath of Luther Crest.

Your gift to Luther Crest:
• Provides needed scholarships to young people who need financial assistance to attend camp;
• Maintains and improves the grounds and facilities;
• Assists with the development of new programs to enable the ministry to better serve our guests;
• Strengthens our ministries for future growth and development!
