John Fischer worked several summers on Staff at Mount Hermon. John led in Worship at Ponderosa Lodge for several years and provided a platform for new worship styles for High School students. He wrote several songs while he was on Summer Staff and they became favorites with the campers and went on to become favorites all over the country.
I was most impressed with John as an evangelist. He had campers lined up outside his door most days to learn more about Christ and so many campers at Ponderosa Lodge in the early days would trace their beginnings in walking with Christ to John Fischer.
In a recent blog post, John talks about this a little bit and I thought it would serve to remind and encourage you about your service here on Summer Staff too! If you want to hear more from John Fischer you can follow the links in this posting.
