Fire. It can be destructive and devastating. However, fire can also be inviting and life giving. As I prepared for the 2016 Vision Dinner Tour in February, I was reflecting on the Rough Fire. I thanked God that the 13th largest fire in modern California history, which surrounded Hume Lake Christian Camps on three sides, […]

Always in Awe

The First Winter Camps at HNE Immediately and without hesitation; that’s how it happened. I stood in the back of the chapel at Hume New England. I listened as the speaker presented the truth of the gospel to a room full of junior high students. When he challenged campers to respond, they stood up. Immediately […]

Dam Restoration Update

April 8, 2016


#PrayforWater Over the last year you’ve likely heard us talk about the restoration of the Hume Lake Dam. Considered one of the most at-risk dams in the control of the Forest Service (you don’t want a dam to be leaking ya know?) the restoration work on the 108 year old dam was a welcomed project […]

    Come Live & Work at Hume

    Have you ever thought about working for Hume? Life at Hume Lake is not for everyone (it’s a three hour round trip to get groceries) but there are so many awesome things about being a part of the ministry. If you want to use your God-given skills and talents to reach thousands of people a […]

    The Gift of a Day

    In what seems like just the blink of an eye, another year has passed. In fact, the decades seem to be moving quickly as well. I remember as a kid, time seemed to move slowly. As a little boy, it felt like nap time would never end, birthdays would never come and the winter snow […]

    Hume Staff & Families During the Rough Fire

We are hopeful that this coming winter season will change all that for Hume Lake Christian Camps because it has taken a toll on the property and the ministry.

    Hume New England Tour & Cruise

These days there is so much more to Hume than just that one beautiful place in the mountains. […]

    Offsite Ministry Fall 2015

    The Rough Fire brought both unforeseen challenges and incredible offsite ministry opportunities for us this fall. With the cancellation of all Hume events from the end of August until the end of December, we looked for ways to continue ministry, but away from the lake location. In the Fresno area we were able to provide […]

    Pioneer Spirit

    When I think about our country, the legacy of this land was laid by people with a sense of adventure, clear vision and a pioneer spirit. I am filled with that same pioneer spirit as I walk the grounds of Hume New England. Much like the early American settlers, I believe we are breaking ground […]
