There’s a season for everything
and a time for every matter under the heavens:
2 a time for giving birth and a time for dying,
a time for planting and a time for uprooting what was planted,
3 a time for killing and a time for healing,
a time for tearing down and a time for building up,
4 a time for crying and a time for laughing,
a time for mourning and a time for dancing,
5 a time for throwing stones and a time for gathering stones,
a time for embracing and a time for avoiding embraces,
6 a time for searching and a time for losing,
a time for keeping and a time for throwing away,
7 a time for tearing and a time for repairing,
a time for keeping silent and a time for speaking,
8 a time for loving and a time for hating,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Although he will be missed, it is with much joy that we announce that Ryan Culby’s season as the director of Asbury Hills has come to an end. He has accepted a job with the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church as the Director of Buckhorn Camp in Bellvue, Colorado. Please be in prayer for Ryan and his family as they transition to life in Colorado. Buckhorn Camp has been faced with lots of challenges, and Ryan feels this is where God is calling him to serve.
It is with excitement that we also announce we have already begun the search process to find the person God is sending to Asbury Hills. Your prayers are also very appreciated as we are accepting resumes and creating our short list of candidates. We will keep you posted on the progress of the search.
In the meantime, camp continues to run strong with the staff going full steam ahead. Asbury Hills is also blessed to have Frances Hulme return this summer as the interim summer camp director. You may know Frances from her many summers at Asbury Hills both as a camper, CIT, and staff member. Most recently she has spent the past several summers as the summer office manager. She works during the school year as a guidance counselor at Pickens High School, and we feel she is the perfect person to serve as the director this summer.
We are looking forward with great anticipation to the next season at Asbury Hills…both for this summer and the summers to come under the new director. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to give our Executive Director, Arthur Spriggs, a call at 864.298.0125.
