Our Missionaries

woodard family 2022
Brent and Beth Woodard have been missionaries at Camp Ozone since 2015. For 12 years before that they were missionaries at our sister camp, Camp Grace, in North Carolina. Brent is our Area Director and Beth is our bookkeeper, webmaster, and main cook. Homeschooling their four children, the Woodards also keep busy with many animals, which are used in outdoor education classes.
Avery and Lauren have been married for just over a year and are our newest full time missionaries. 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 is serving 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. Avery and Lauren have reached 75% of their support goal but are still fundraising to get to 100%. If you are interested in supporting the Berdeaus or would like to contact them for more information, please contact our offices and we will put you in touch!

Bruce and Michelle Cook met in 1983 and were married in 1986. They graduated from Appalachian Bible College, Bruce with an MA in Experiential Education, and Michelle with a BA in Elementary Education. They have served passionately in youth and camp ministry for over 30 years.

In 2021 God called them to serve here at Camp Ozone. They serve as Director of Experiential Ministries (experiential team building, high/low ropes course elements, backpacking, etc), Director of Teen Ministries, (including Directors of Servant Leaders, our amazing summer high school volunteers) hospitality, homeschool days, retreats and other events as we grow.

They are currently seeking to grow their team of support partners to reach 100% support! If you are interested in meeting with them, we would love to help you connect!
