We are pleased to have Garrett Kahrs from Forge Ministries as our speaker for Veritas 2019.



Have you ever wondered what the Prodigal Son did with his life after his return home to his “but while he was still a long way off” father? Garrett doesn’t. He’s fairly certain the son spent the rest of his life telling others about the love and grace his father lavished on him.


Garrett knows the prodigal life. He also knows the love and grace of the Father. That’s why Garrett has dedicated his life to telling others about the God who loves deeply, forgives entirely, and empowers completely. Garrett is passionate about helping people discover an intimate and ongoing relationship with Jesus and equipping them to walk in their unique gifting and ministry.
Garrett lives in Kansas along with his wife, Talia. He was born and farm-raised in Nebraska. He’s a graduate of Fort Hays State University, has a Master’s Degree in Applied Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute.  

We are excited to announce Hope Radebaugh from Forge Ministries as our Momentum 2019 speaker.



Hope Radebaugh believes in God’s transforming power to change lives. Why? She’s experienced it! And she’s watched God bring healing, wholeness, and freedom to countless men, women, and children as they’ve encountered God in His Word and through His Spirit.

Hope and her husband, Barclay, currently live in South Carolina. They have three adult children: Anna (and her husband, Don), Reid, and Sophia. Through basketball (The Radebaugh’s are a lifelong “coaching family”) and mission trips, Hope has been privileged to travel extensively in the US and abroad (Spain, Poland, the Dominican Republic, and Canada) to share good news: there’s purpose, joy, and freedom in living life with Jesus.     

A 6th generation great niece of Daniel Boone (it’s true!), Hope has adventure and trail-blazing in her blood. No wonder God instilled in her the same passion and purpose as Isaiah “to proclaim good news to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, to comfort all who mourn, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for those imprisoned.”

"Our adult mission group spent a wonderful week at Camp Whispering Pines.  While in Mobile rehabbing two houses, the camp was our home away from home.  The staff, who became more like friends, was responsive from first contact throughout the trip.  The food was wonderful, rooms clean and comfortable, and the grounds a pleasure to roam.  We only wished our schedule had allowed more time there."  
--Marianna Killbride, Director of Missions and Outreach, Congregational Church of New Caanan.

"My daughter loved it! She was involved in several activities and made a few new friends. When she returned from camp she immediately asked if she could go back next year and has repeatedly asked since! Great job CWP!" --Bryan B.

"We went with our church last year and we had such a great time. We are going back this year and I can't wait." --Jenniffer O.

"Love these people!! Love their servants' hearts and how they teach our children to love, get into action and share the message of Jesus!!" --Leah W.
"Our kids had a fabulous time with all the activities. I was lucky enough to be early for pickup and got to go to the ending worship service. I was so blessed. I know they learned a lot. We are definitely coming back next year and hopefully for youth camp also! Thanks to all of the camp staff for being so welcoming, caring and friendly with our kids. I have heard great things about each one of the counselors that worked with them!" --Kim N.

"On behalf of the entire Servant Heart Emmaus Community, I would like to express our thanks & appreciation for all that you have been & are currently doing to make Camp Whispering Pines a better place for all who use it! Your efforts have not gone unnoticed! The camp is looking better than ever & we are grateful for all of the improvements. Your staff is always kind & willing to go the extra mile for us."
