OCF and Leadership

[…]Europe conference is exercising leadership. Coast Guard cadets running the children’s program at White Sulphur Springs Conference Center during the Easter retreat are exercising leadership. A colonel who has been selected for promotion to brigadier general acting as the registrar for a LEAD! is exercising leadership. An area coordinator organizing the leaders of all Christian ministries at the installation is exercising leadership. Our chief means of encouraging and equipping officers for biblical leadership and effective ministry is-and will remain-the small group. I get really encouraged when I see the young officers leaving Pensacola eager to get involved in military ministry; […]

OCF at Garden Tomb

[…]Captain (British Army) Rosalind Meryon, who have spoken many times at OCF’s conference center in White Sulphur Springs, PA, invite OCFers travelling to the Holy Land to contact them. The Meryons oversee the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. “Rosalind and I greatly want to greet OCFers and their churches and groups. We will endeavor to welcome every one of you to this pinnacle experience during your time in Israel.” The Meryons were on the British Naval Staff in Washington, DC, from 1985-88 and back again from1992-1995 at the NATO headquarters in Norfolk, VA. Their son, David, who was born in 1987 […]

Spiritual Success

[…]a group coming together to worship Almighty God. Participate in OCF retreats and conferences. White Sulphur Springs and Spring Canyon offer continuous programs such as retreats, family events, and Rocky Mountain High. Use OCF as a meeting place to network with Christians on your base, in your unit, on your ship. Post updates on the Internet. Consider journaling your walk with God. Include prayer requests and answers. Remember that God selected you to serve in the exact position you are in so that you might learn to speak the military “language” to communicate about God and His love for those […]

Stretchmark Sorority

[…]“I’m not going to tell you again!” They dream of someday wearing a clean white blouse, which will still be free of stains by the time they get to wherever they’re going. Mothers could teach our world leaders some great negotiating skills from what they’ve learned in checkout lines; how do you refuse to buy candy, gum, and crayons and still keep the peace? I thought my mom was brilliant because she understood which way was left and which was right; how can you know that? And how could she pour all that “stuff” in a bowl and produce delicious […]

The Line Officer and the Chaplain

[…]is the vision we should have for our chapels! The words of Jesus call to us today. The fields are white unto harvest (John 4:35). Pray that the Lord will send forth laborers. (Luke 10:12). A spiritually live, praying chapel congregation is just such a disciple-making and disciple-sending ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ to use in expanding His Church throughout the military and throughout the world. The chapel offers you many opportunities to use your spiritual gifts and to express your commitment to Jesus Christ. All chaplains welcome volunteers to serve in their programs. The transient nature of military […]

The View from the Top

[…]around the campfire each night. The final day was just for fun and relaxation — if rafting down white water rapids can be called relaxing! The beauty was out-of-this-world, and the fresh water in our faces was invigorating. We got a great view of the Royal Gorge — from the bottom looking up. My RMH adventure was fun, exciting, and took place in stunningly beautiful scenery. But much more than that, it was a close-up encounter with God and a great time with fellow Christians. I met God on the mountaintop. Will you? There is room for you at one […]

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 […]

Two Greedy Institutions

[…]Shine, USA, Ret & COL Don Snider, USA, Ret. It was Thursday of a very intense and exciting week at White Sulphur Springs where we had been focusing on the role of the Christian officer (or officer-Christian) in his or her profession. Through Paul’s letter to the believers at Colossae, God challenges us that “just as we received Christ Jesus as Lord,” we are called to “continue to live in him.” This means that if we are military officers, we are to continue to live in Christ in the role of military officer. But we also have other roles and […]
