Our resident staff team at Camp Grace works year-round to provide Christ-honoring, quality camps and retreats for churches in the West.
Marlin and Leah Driskell have been with the camp officially in 2010, but without their constant help and leadership over the past thirty-plus years, Camp Grace would not exist as we know it. Marlin is our director, and for most camps that would mean that he sits behind a desk, does lots of paperwork, and calls people to promote the camp. He still does all of that, but so much more! He is often up at the camp repairing a water line, fixing a door, or working on our latest building project. Leah is in charge of the delicious food we have at Camp Grace. If you’ve ever shared a meal with us, chances are that Leah has had a part in cooking it for you. Leah not only is the head cook, but she also makes all of the menus, orders the food, picks it up each week of the summer, and works on many other projects with us throughout the year.
Scott and Christina Schulman have been on staff since 2013 when they had been married for less than a year and had no children. Now they are in the middle of raising a five-year-old, four-year-old, and one-year-old on top of working for the camp! Scott is our program director, so he gets to plan out all of the games, activities, and the spiritual themes for our camps and retreats. He also does the bookkeeping, recruiting, and a lot of promotion for the camp. Christina is in charge of registration, social media, and recruiting and speaker correspondence. Both Scott and Christina are excited do be a part of a ministry that has such a rich history rooted in biblical principles but also a ministry that has an exciting roadmap for the future.
Jordan and Melody Hoff joined our resident staff team in 2019. It has been a joy to have a couple who is excited about seeing young people’s lives changed for God’s glory. Jordan is our operations director, so he is in charge of landscaping, projects, and maintenance. That keeps him very busy even in the winter! There’s always something to build, fix, or plan at Camp Grace. Melody does our graphic design, is in charge of the store, and plans out all of the crafts we do in the summer. She also works closely with Christina on creating our brochures that go out for each camp. Jordan and Melody have done an excellent job of integrating into our team, and we are excited to see how God uses them here over the years.
