Avery and Lauren have been married for just over a year and are very excited to follow the call God has placed on their hearts to serve together at Camp Ozone. Both Avery and Lauren have a passion for sharing the Gospel through camp ministry, each having worked for multiple summers at CBM Camp Grace in Fairmont, North Carolina. Avery is from Laurinburg, North Carolina, and graduated from Montgomery Community College’s Forest Management Department. He loves the outdoors and is looking forward to developing an outdoor education program at Camp Ozone that will help children see the beauty and handiwork of God through His creation. Avery also has experience in construction and plans to serve through groundskeeping and maintenance work. Lauren is from Chattanooga, Tennessee and graduated from the Global Ministries Department at Toccoa Falls College. Lauren’s current ministry goals at Camp Ozone are to assist Avery in the development of the outdoor education program, as well as maintain communication, build relationships, and give biblical instruction to the children of the community through mailbox club lessons. Please be in prayer for Avery and Lauren as they begin the process of raising support. They are excited to come on staff as soon as the Lord paves way through bringing together their support team.
