Call Dave Burns, Director of Adult Ministries, at Mount Hermon to recommend a military family or to ask any questions about how you can participate in sponsoring a military family.
Mount Hermon sees a crucial need to support the families of service men and women who are stationed in harm’s way overseas. We are desirous of supporting and encouraging family members who are left behind. We are currently working with chaplains from various military bases regarding this ministry opportunity, and they are incredibly excited and grateful that we would consider doing something to benefit military families.
The opportunity to minister to these families is three-fold:
Mount Hermon will provide a peaceful setting, comfortable accommodations, and superb meals. Counseling and Life Coaching are also available for each family. The need is tremendous as returning vets work through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and readapting to life at home after being gone for upwards of 12 months per deployment. These families enjoy a wonderful Mount Hermon Family Camp experience completely free of charge!
We are asking individuals and churches to sponsor “one family for one week." The average cost per family is $2,500. You may sponsor all or part of this cost. The testimonies from the families (48 last summer) who have attended is overwhelming. It’s an amazing ministry!
