Sam & Marlena
Sam and Marlena have been married seventeen years and have six children. Their first interaction with Life Action was through a Summit at their home church in Illinois in 2011. They learned about Family Camp from a church friend, and have attended Camp since 2015. At Family Camp during the summer of 2017, Sam and Marlena felt led to enter the mission field full time. In 2019, after much prayer, guidance, and seeking God's will for their future, their search led them to serve at Family Camp. They will be serving at the Family Camp as CREW Directors. CREW (young adult volunteers from all over the country) serve the guests during the weeks of summer Family Camp as well as the weekend retreat season. While serving, Sam and Marlena will interview, organize, schedule, and mentor CREW members. They are eager to get started in this role as both Sam and Marlena have a heart and passion for young people. The main focus of Life Action Ministries is to inspire your next YES to God. Family Camp's purpose is to ignite movements of authentic Christianity within the families and individuals who attend. Camp staff and speakers encourage families and individuals to PAUSE from the grinding routine of life, RECONNECT with God and each other, and return home refreshed, ready to ENGAGE community and make disciples. Sam and Marlena are blessed to have experienced this first-hand as campers, and are thrilled to encourage more families to do the same as they begin serving Camp families full time.
