Ian Hartfield, Youth Ministry Coordinator for Sheridan Lutheran Church; had this to say about their mission trip to Lutheranch in 2021.

“Bringing our youth group to Lutheranch for our Youth Mission Trip, was one of the best decisions I’ve made in 15 years in youth ministry. This life changing, mountain-top experience was packed with meaningful service-learning, life-giving faith formation and worship opportunities, unique outdoor adventure activities and tons of fun! Plus, the camp facilities, meals and program staff are incredible! Our high school youth grew in faith, made a difference in God’s kingdom, and were challenged and inspired to live out their faith in their daily lives as they returned home. The caring community that was built there was transformational for our group. Our youth are still raving about how amazing our summer at Lutheranch was! This is a place and an experience not to be missed!
