God has blessed Truett Conference Center & Camp with incredible volunteers and workers. Here are some of the key members and how to contact them!
Blake was born and raised in nearby Blairsville, Georgia and grew up in the church at New Union Baptist Church. Blake served for nearly a year as an intern. During that time he showed a strong initiative and work ethic, particularly with tasks involved with improving the camp and maintaining it. In August 2022 he joined the team as the Facilities & Grounds Manager. He loves being involved in the outreach and ministry of Truett. With a diverse set of skills, he’s a great addition to the team.
Blake loves spending time in God’s great outdoors whether it be hunting, fishing, or working. He’s always up for making new friends, so make sure to say hi to him the next time you visit Truett.
Matt joined the Truett team in January 2019. As Operations & Special Programs Coordinator he enjoys helping guests have a memorable experience. But more importantly, he loves seeing people of all ages grow closer to God. In his free time, Matt enjoys writing novels, woodworking, talking about Tolkien, and hiking.
Our RISE Leadership Program is an 11 month program designed to give young men and women the opportunity to grow in their faith and have hands-on experience with ministry.
The program normally starts mid-September. We encourage applications during the spring and summer.
Bryson is from Northern Georgia, where he attended New Union Baptist Church for many years. He’s worked a variety of trades, and is very excited to now work in a ministry setting, particularly in the outdoors. His love for the outdoors was initially found through time spent with family in God’s Creation. Camp is a wonderful union of his skills, passions, and faith in Christ.
Isaac grew up in Arizona and now lives in Waxhaw, NC (the same town as fellow intern Ray, though they didn’t know each other before working at Truett). Isaac loves disc golf, mountain biking, and being outside. In 2022, he worked a summer at a Christian camp, which gave him his passion for camp ministry. In 2023, he joined our summer staff team before starting as a RISE Leader. Isaac brings experience, passion, and a love for the Lord to our team.
Ray was born in the Philippines, where his parents were serving as missionaries. He grew up in Waxhaw, NC. Motocross, mountain biking, rock climbing, and working outside interest Ray greatly. His skills and experience in Graphic Design and Photography will be a great asset to the camp. Ray has recently worked at Camp Cedar Cliff in Asheville, NC for two summers, where he discovered his love for Camp Ministry. He’s excited to be part of the team at Truett and take steps toward making ministry his full-time career.
Kaleigh grew up in Jackson County Georgia. She was very involved in Christ Place Church, especially with kids ministry. Her childhood passions included camping and dancing. She also enjoyed going to summer camp. For the last two summers, she has done an excellent job working on our summer staff. She brings her passion for ministering to children and the outdoors to our RISE Leadership program.
Volunteers play a critical role in our camp’s operation. Their invaluable service is a great witness in and of itself. Our primary needs include kitchen, maintenance, ground, and medical, especially during the summer. But whatever your skills, we can utilize your heart to serve the Lord.
Summer is primetime for camps, and Truett is no different. Approximately 1,000 people will come to camp during this short two-month window. Our summer staff plays a crucial role in ministering to campers, serving guests, and helping the camp operate smoothly. Being part of our summer staff is a tremendous opportunity to grow as a leader, employee, and Christian.
RISE Leadership Program
At Truett we are always investing in the next generation. The Real Internship and Spiritual Experience gives rising leaders genuine and valuable experience. The nearly year-long program lets them experience all aspects of the camp industry and gives them a leadership role during the summer season!
