Time, Talent, Treasure: Academies

[…]by OCF’s conference center ministry by speaker Jim Wilson whose gospel message stirred Bryan at White Sulphur Springs, and Tom and Cheri at Spring Canyon, on their first vacation as a married couple. Cheri’s OCF legacy goes back to when her parents, CH(LTC) Russell and Lois Stroup, USA, hosted Dr. Bob Smith and C.N. Tokatloglou (Mr. Tok). Both men have participated in God’s kingdom work through OCF by leading and coordinating Bible studies wherever assigned during active duty, and holding varied OCF leadership positions. Tom’s OCF resume includes ROACT Council, and USMA and USAFA ministry teams with Cheri, while Bryan […]

Time, Talent, Treasure: Retirees

[…]lieutenant proudly said to a chaplain, “LTC Vaughan just commissioned me.” The chaplain at the White Sulphur Springs-hosted event laughed, “LTC Vaughan commissioned me too-forty years ago.” Retreats, conference center ministry: so much of the life-changing transformation occurring through OCF for a lifetime sits squarely the acreage of its two conference centers, where the living water of Jesus Christ is continually poured into others’ lives. As with so many others over the years, both Jeff Silliman and Joe Orosz and their families drank deeply from the conference centers’ spiritual well of programs and events. Serving in many OCF capacities along […]

Time, Talent, Treasure: ROTC

[…]years now, OCF’s conference center ministry—first at Spring Canyon in Colorado and later at White Sulphur Springs in Pennsylvania—has refreshed countless guests via activity-filled, Christ-extolling retreats and programs. The culmination of those things is a faith infusion, a reservoir of God’s truth meant to be spilled over into others.  Reaching future generations for Christ in the ripe-for-harvest mission field of college ROTC is where Rob and Chandra Enos and Tim and Penny Wiseman have taken the fruit of their respective conference center ministry experiences in service. Rob and Chandra are at Virginia Tech while Tim and Penny are at East […]

God, are you with me?

[…]repose beneath the cold ambience of the fluorescent lights overhead. Dark gray blankets and crisp white sheets, tightly stretched and tucked, left a choke-hold on each bunk. Deep inside he could feel this same choke-hold. His crying words had jolted the perfection of military order. A few other Soldiers, in a confused curiosity, peaked into the room from a dark distant doorway. Witnesses, they were, to a breaking point. They mumbled among themselves—this is how rumors were born. And then life went on. It was time for mail call. Name after name was read. One by one, a fortunate Soldier […]

A day in the life of OCF

From Mid to Married to Mom

[…]to the planetarium. We officially started dating one month after attending an OCF retreat at White Sulphur Springs, married fifteen months later, and were then both assigned to the same duty station upon our commissioning. But because of our conflicting schedules, during the first two years of our marriage we were together less than six months.  Everything changed when my husband was given the opportunity to pursue his dream job. But I had no idea what I was in for. He would come home day after day, bruised and beaten up, utterly exhausted from the harsh training necessary for his […]

Laborers and Laboring as Unto the Lord

[…]green leaves take on the rusted glow of autumn. And lest risking a fashion faux pas–no more white purse or slacks past September 5, either! Oregon was the first state legalizing a holiday in honor of workers, doing so in 1887. Seven years later Congress followed suit nationally by declaring the first Monday of each September a legal holiday in observance of Labor Day.
