"For we are fellow workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building." - 1 Corinthians 3:9

Our Mission

Our purpose is to encourage and celebrate the revelation of God’s presence in resort and leisure settings. In order to accomplish this, we have joined together as people who minister in such settings to enhance the effectiveness of our own ministry and to promote the understanding of resort and leisure ministries through the sharing of ideas and resources and by strengthening and undergirding professional and personal growth. Together, we will seek to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ to those who live, work, and play in resort and leisure settings.
