MT. CARMEL FAMILY CAMP
JULY 12-16, 2023
Registration begins 2pm -- Camp concludes with a noon meal July 16.
Bruce Inion Sr. is an ordained elder within the Evangelical Church and resides in Moorhead, Minnesota. He has served in ministry since 1998 at Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church (Plevna, MT) as a solo pastor, at Glendive Evangelical Church (Glendive, MT) as a Student & Families Pastor, at Circle Evangelical Church (Circle, MT) as a Senior Pastor, at Frontier School of the Bible (LaGrange, WY) as a Bible professor, and presently employed at Marvin Composites (Fargo, ND) and as the sophomore Evangelism teacher at Park Christian School (Moorhead, MN).
Bruce has been married to Christy since 1998 and has three children: BJ Inion (married to Olivia) residing in Omaha, NE (They are expecting in September!); Paige Cranfill (Married to Kasin) living at the US Marine base at Camp Pendleton, CA; and Ellie (who will be a HS senior this fall at Park Christian). Bruce enjoys skiing, longboarding, swimming, cooking, hunting and (most of all) spending time with the family.
Kurt and Cynthia Zimmerman have been missionaries with World Gospel Mission since 1991. After both were teachers in public schools in Kentucky, they sensed God leading them into mission work. They taught for many years at the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center in Bolivia and were very much involved in church nurturing while there.
When they returned from Bolivia in 2018, they were off to the Texas Mexico border ministries to teach at Taylor Christian School in McAllen, Texas. During the 2019-20 school year, COVID changed everything. Taylor Christian School never rebounded with the last year of teaching having only 7 students. God was preparing us for a new work that would have a greater impact in the Rio Grande Valley.
Using the facilities and finishing a $400,000 phase on our gym building, God has greatly expanded existing ministries and led us to start others. We have the Sparrow's Nest used clothing ministry, the Soccer Lion Academy and a Gospel Martial Arts Union class. We are partnering with local church groups for a youth ministry called Youth in LOCOmotion. The Pregnancy Resource Center is encouraging couples and young ladies making pregnancy decisions to choose life. Our Immigration Connection office counsels and helps with paperwork for people working on legal immigration. We have several Bible studies and the Sublime Gracia church meets in our chapel. A new ministry to senior adults in the community brings them together to get to know each other better. There is a crochet class, English conversation class a guest house ministry and frequent help to people displaced from their homes. We have two home school cooperatives that use our buildings for their classes.
This summer we are looking to have a basketball camp to offer while our soccer program is in a break. Kurt is the director of the Taylor Community Center and oversees all the ministries and Cynthia is the assistant field team leader and heads up the emphasis on prayer for our field.
Adult Sessions Teacher:
Juwle S. Nagbe, I am an Ordained Elder in the United Methodist Church, Pastor of the Ebenezer United Methodist
Church and the Salem United Methodist Church in Streeter and Napoleon respectively. I came to Streeter from pastoring two other United Methodist Churches in Lisbon and Enderlin, and a Presbyterian Church in Lisbon, North Dakota for seven years. Before I went to Lisbon, I started the First African United Methodist Church in Fargo, N. D. While in Fargo, I helped in starting what is now known as the Midwestern Ministerial Association through which I work with a group of pastors around the Fargo-Moorhead area.
Before coming to North Dakota, I completed the Haggi Institute of Advance Leadership Training, I attended and graduated from Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina and completed my Pastoral Counseling Education at the Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
Before coming to the United States, lived, administered as a school principal, and pastored a large refugee congregation in the Ivory Coast for four years. I am married to Martha Nagbe and together we have four young adults. Our older girl, Dave-Marth B. Nagbe went to the with the Lord on April 8, 2022.
As a young man, I played soccer in school and loved to fish. The love of the Lord is the foundation of my life. The Lord has been blessing me even before I got to know Him as my personal Savior and Lord and since I turned my live over to Him on August 18, 1975, He has led me through many valleys and shadows of death. I am deeply grateful to Him for laying down His life that I might have life in and through Him.
