Dave & Jan retired from Riverside in 2018. They loved their 22 1/2 years at camp, and they are thoroughly enjoying retirement! Seeing more of their family in the summer is a special bonus! It keeps them pretty busy seeing 5 children and 12 grandchildren!

      They live on 7 acres 1/4 mile from camp & love watching all the amazing things that are still happening at God's camp, Riverside! 

Three goats and three horses take up some of each day.  Jan continues to love, & work with horses & Dave spends a lot of time caring for their acreage. 

       Dave & Jan still feel called to ministry and are involved in their church and at Riverside, loving  to spend time with people of all ages.  Dates now include movies in the middle of the day (because they can!!)! You will often catch them laughing and enjoying life. 

Their favorite worship song is "Goodness of God"

"And all my life you have been faithful

And all my life you have been so so good

With all my breath that I am able

Oh I will sing of the goodness of God."

They hope to rejoice in God's goodness with you at Young at Heart in September!
