Ken Slezak 1954 - 2021

 I’m saddened to announce the passing of Ken Slezak. Ken lost his battle with cancer Friday, September 17, 2021.

 I first met this tall man with a big heart at the Ohio Regional Shape-n-Race (pinewood) Derby events 20 years ago. Ken was using his talents on the tech side of the event. He was an important team member in helping to make the races exciting and memorable for all - and making sure we knew who won by the thousandth of a second. Ken was also very active in our summer camp scuba program as an assistant to our instructor. He used his talents and resources to make sure young men knew the gospel of Christ and the path to right-living with Him.

We will miss Ken until we see him when we meet our Lord and Savior face to face. Pray for his wife Loretta, his sons Eric and Ryan, and the rest of his family and friends as they pass through this valley of loss.

Herald of Christ, Jared Archer, heads to Chad

An extra dose of fulfillment in ministry comes when we see those whom God has allowed us to influence for His Kingdom seeking to influence others for the Kingdom of God.

I had the privilege of being a part of Hope UMC, Battalion 6859 meeting on Monday, and praying for Brigade alum Jared Archer.

Jared stopped to visit his home Battalion where he was awarded the Herald of Christ award in 2017. He has now graduated from Moody Bible Institute and is heading to Chad as a missionary. We had the privilege of hearing from Jared and praying for him and his ministry. As we prayed, we laid hands on Jared to bless him as he begins this next phase of life.

Pray for Jared as he seeks to live out God’s calling on his life to impact the world for Christ.

2021 Summer Camp Report



Wow, summer 2021 is in the books. It was great to get back to normalcy in so may ways. However, God's working is never ordinary.

Since we were unable to run our normal camp programs last season, were were prepared in advance in some areas. Other areas took extra work and intentionality to get back into the rhythm of camp. When it all came together, it was another extra ordinary year of Brigade Camp in Ohio - our 86th year.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support for this important ministry. A special thanks to all who work and volunteer to make this ministry so special and fruitful. God continues to use camp to add members to His Kingdom, and to raise up leaders to carry His banner forward into a culture in great need.

Please take a few moments to read our camp directors report to get a small picture of how God worked at camp this season. Please pray for us as the team begins to plan for our next season of Brigade Camp at Stony Glen! See you at the Glen in 2022, DV!

2021 Camp Director Report

From Dave Buncher

“let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” - Hebrews 10:22

Draw near to God. That is what I saw this summer at Brigade Camp at Stony Glen. Young men, boys, fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, drawing nearer to God. Each year God shows me a unique thing about Himself through my time each summer as the camp director. This year was God showing our campers drawing nearer to Him and his response.
