We are grateful to our many supporters who have helped under gird this ministry with financial gifts. Recently, your gifts and support have helped Aldersgate begin to make significant improvements to our sites and programs.

There’s always more to be done, however; and your continued support helps us fill those needs and continue to make Aldersgate what it is and what we know it can be.

The Spirit of Aldersgate

Those who have experienced the spirit of Aldersgate have a common thread that weaves their lives together. With this bond, comes the opportunity and the responsibility to share that experience and to play a vital role in Aldersgate’s history of reaching people in a unique way. Each gift, no matter to what purpose it may be designated or the amount given, is invaluable to the ministry. As you review the giving opportunities, please remember that your gift, whether a financial gift, a prayer, or the gift of time, is the gift of life – the spiritual life of all who will spend time on this Holy Ground.

Annual Giving

The primary goal of the Aldersgate Annual Giving Program is to encourage a pattern of consistent support from past and present campers, parents, guest groups and friends of Aldersgate.

Annual giving is designed to foster support for current operating costs to help improve day-to-day operations of the ministry and provide for future ministry opportunities. Contributions to the Annual Giving Program help narrow the gap between actual operating cost and what each individual or group pays for use of the facility and programming.

Capital Giving

Our commitment to excellence requires constant attention to the job of upgrading and building facilities that provide our guests with the environment needed for spiritual growth. In the years to come, we hope to embark on several key capital projects that will propel Aldersgate into the next phase of camping and retreat ministry.

Scholarship Program

Beginning with our establishment in 1945, Aldersgate has provided a quality summer camp and retreat experience to thousands of children, youth and adults. Many have credited their Aldersgate experiences with helping to answer God’s call to ministry.
