All Things New

Posted by & filed under Alumni, Associates, General, Kindling.

Do you like “new?” New car? New boss? New school? New child? New neighborhood? New friend? New job? New challenge? New problem to solve? New In-laws? I guess it depends on what is “new,” right?  In a powerful passage of Scripture found in Revelation 21, it talks about a day when all things will be […]

Posted by & filed under Associates, General, Kindling.

  Each summer Mount Hermon hosts the largest weekly Family Camp in the country – if not the world – as over 700 people of all ages descend upon our grounds to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience that spans the generations. Personally, Family Camp has been a huge part of my childhood, teenage and adult years, […]

Making It Amazing

Posted by & filed under Associates, General, Kindling, Stories of Ministry.

It Works … So keep it going! Recently I asked the Lord for a “vision” for Mount Hermon, the ability to dream big for the future. But, to be honest, I’ve never had God hand me a five or ten year plan for a ministry I’ve led. Instead I’ve learned to stay one step behind the […]

One-One-One: 2016 was quite a year.

Posted by & filed under Kindling.

By Mike Romberger, CEO/President Mount Hermon It was a Leap Year, Pokemon Go entered our existence, the Rio Olympics were a surprise success, and the Cubs won the World Series. No really, they did! You never know what a year is  going to bring, and as we have now entered 2017 we aren’t sure of […]

One-Hunder-Ten: 2015 Annual Ministry Report

Posted by & filed under LOG, Staff News, Stories of Ministry.

As I wind down year number one as a staff member at Mount Hermon, I have enjoyed experiencing Family Camps, guest groups, marriage retreats, men’s and women’s gatherings, teen weekend camps, and so much more. But that is nothing compared to God completing one-hundred-ten years of impactful ministry at this special place. Think of that, […]

To God Be the Glory!

Posted by & filed under LOG, Stories of Ministry.

  Spring. It’s the season that closes out winter and ushers in the summer, the season of beautiful blossoms, lush green grass, and water rushing from the mountain snow melt. I must admit – having moved here last May from Colorado – that it has been strange seeing trees in bloom, no snow on the […]

Each number represents a group of incredible Mount Hermon staff members! 67 full-time year round 282 part-time year round and seasonal 264 summer staff = 613 total Mount […]

Always Abounding in the Work of the Lord

Posted by & filed under Alumni, Kindling, Stories of Ministry.

While recently sitting around a table flanked by Mount Hermon’s Trustees I was impacted by a man who was stepping down after over sixty faithful years as a key leader of Mount Hermon. I’m referring to 91–year–old John Jenks. John has been both on the Board of Directors and a Trustee for over half of […]

As a new leader I have enjoyed discovering our storied history, viewing our present vibrancy, and dreaming the hope of an even brighter future. As we move toward 2016 and beyond I want to […]
