In the next few months we will be adding 12 new cabins plus expanding and renovating our dining hall. God is opening doors for us to reach more people each year with the gospel of Christ, and we need more space. What a blessing!!! This new phase of building will add over 100 beds and increase our dining hall capacity by 1,500 sq. feet.
Keep checking this page as we post pictures of our progress. If you want more information about Timber Creek or how you can help us with this building project call our office at 601-536-2127

We are now half way through our summer season, and needless to say it has been an amazing first half. Over the past 6 weeks our summer staff has been on site, serving multiple groups each week. We want to thank them for their hard work and for being willing to answer the call God placed on their hearts this summer. Everything that is done at Timber Creek Camp is done because of their hard work and love for our guests.
So far this summer, we have witnessed and heard the bell ring over 37 times. This is a cause for celebration for the new lives that have chosen to follow Christ. Please continue to pray for the individuals who will come to Timber Creek and for our staff as they serve our groups.
Timber Creek Camp is excited about the final selections of our 2013 Summer Staff. This year we will have the largest staff we have ever had. We would like to welcome our 5 girls on board: Lauren Aycock, Jessica Barnett, Claire Griffin, Emily Marler, and Casie Tadlock. We are excited about the impact they will make for the Kingdom over the course of 10 weeks at Timber Creek. We would also like to welcome out 5 guys for the summer: Cody Jenkins, Ian Lanthrip, Rob Parker, Brady Power, and Jesse Vaughn. God has some awesome things in store for these 10 students who have sacrificially given up their summer to follow His calling to serve. Follow us on Instagram @ TimberCreekCamp to keep up with what all that is happening at TCC this summer!!
Summers at Timber Creek Camp are very busy and would not be possible without the dedication of our summer staff. We truly can not put into words how great the sacrifice they make for Timber Creek is, and how much we appreciate their servant hearts. They were able to encounter God in a different way this summer, and also saw Him change the hearts of countless individuals that came through the gates of Timber Creek. So thank you once again on behalf of the Timber Creek staff. You have all blessed us as we have watched you be the hands and feet of Christ. Thanks.
In today’s society, social media plays a major role in communication. This is why Timber Creek Camp has now joined Instagram.

If you would like to follow Timber Creek on Instagram just search for timbercreekcamp. We also are on Twitter and Facebook, just search Timber Creek Camp on there as well. We hope you will enjoy being able to catch a glimpse of what goes on at Timber Creek.
We are closing in on the half way point of our summer season. So far it has been a life changing summer for the staff as they have looked closer at the characteristics of Christ. Some of these include His extravagant generosity, His disruptive honesty, His fierce intention, and His playfulness. All of these characteristics are not of the norm within the church, so it has been very rewarding for all the staff to add to their perspective of how they view Christ.
In addition, the campers have experienced Christ in new ways as well. The bell has continued to ring constantly, sounding to everyone that the individual is now a follower of Christ. With over nine groups already having been at Timber Creek; over 750 individuals have encountered Christ in some form. Whether it was for the first time or just a retreat for someone that has been a follower for several years, God is still doing work at Timber Creek Camp. We thank everyone who has prayed for us this summer and ask that you all continue to pray as well.

Summer has arrived at Timber Creek Camp, and with an all new staff the summer has had an amazing start. Thanks to the groups that have already come through our gates, and also for the others that will soon be here. It is our prayer that God will use Timber Creek as a sanctuary from society, so that the campers can encounter the Living God!
We have also finished the “NEW” pool at Timber Creek, and we are already seeing the huge impact it has made with the groups. Thanks for everyone’s prayers and hard work in this monumental step in improving Timber Creek Camp!
At Timber Creek, we will have a huge new addition to our outdoors activities. In years past, we have maintained an above ground swimming pool for use during the summer. This year we are nearing the completion of our in ground pool. It will be located in the same area; however, the entire area surrounding the pool will be receiving a face lift as well. We hope the groups that will be coming to camp will be as excited about the new addition as we are. Summer is almost here!
