The George Shinn Foundation Partners With Deer Run Camps and Retreats

Home / Blog / The George Shinn Foundation Partners With Deer Run Camps and Retreats

Recently The George Shinn Foundation made a commitment to help Deer Run Camps and Retreats expand their ministry in support of their mission: To transform lives through a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ while connecting with others in a camp or retreat setting.

Deer Run is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nondenominational Christian camp and retreat center founded in 1998. By creating unforgettable camp and retreat experiences for children, youth, families, churches, schools, and community organizations, Deer Run seeks to lead individuals into a relationship with Jesus Christ and to empower Christ followers to share the Good News, disciple other Christ followers, and create revival in their families, schools, churches, and communities.

George and Denise Shinn met with Deer Run founders, David and Liz Gibson, to observe first-hand the positive impact that Deer Run is having on the community.

Founder David Gibson said, “We are so thankful to be partnering with The George Shinn Foundation! It is exciting to know that there is a foundation that is committed to the same values and purpose that we are! As God continues to bless our efforts and expand our opportunities for impacting lives it is vital that we have strong ministry partners that we know we can count on to help us accomplish all that God has called us to do!”
