Camp Glow exists to spark creativity in the children of all generations as we disciple
them to Go Love Others Well.
The story of Camp Glow has been years in the making, with precious winks from God along the way. If you want to hear the long version of it, schedule a sit down with us and a s'more at the bonfire. But here is the short version. In 2016 God began stirring Tony and Lauren Wagoner's hearts to disciple people using God's creative heart and the beautiful outdoors. They both encountered Jesus in an incredible way that changed the course of their family. There was a calling to teach people in unique ways using Lauren's creativity of photography and Tony's love of pastoring and teaching the love of the Father. They felt a stirring within them of Family... first finding it with the identity of walking as a son of God, and then extending that to generational families.
At the same time (around 2017) God was birthing The Glow Mission through Andrew and Dar Draper to Go Love Others Well all over the world. He took them on a journey of stretching as they took GLOW to Ukraine working with the orphans and widows. In 2023 The Wagoners and Drapers visions collided on a beautiful camp at Cedar Grove Retreat owned by the Benham family. June of 2023 we sat together and said "yes!" to Camp Glow. We feel His heart stirring to His children of all generations to come meet Him at camp. Walk the property, take a class, pray in nature, meet a friend, connect with your family, worship Him together. We cannot wait to have more starry night bonfires filled with more stories of His goodness.
We have felt the Father tell us many times that this place will be one of Encounter. We love to walk the land and listen to His heart for the people that will come. We believe this will be a land where people from many different walks of life will unite in one common mission of deep discipleship and equipping to send people with the Gospel.
We look forward to teaching and hosting Creative Co-op classes for children, Young adult Worship Collectives, Camp Meetings, Glow Kids Clubs, Marriage and Family Discipleship Classes.
Life is so much better when we do it together! We know it takes much more than just us to tend to the land and mission God has put in front of us. But here is a bit about the 5 of us who are in the daily running of Camp Glow.
