Meet the CAMP BIMI Staff
Then Now
In 1993, there was no doubt who I wanted to teach specific topics at CAMP BIMI! Why? They
had experience in those areas and were transparent in sharing. 5 of those 7 faithfully taught for
25 years. Along the way, our CB staff increased! Their passion, dedication and commitment to
give of their time to mentor each individual and couple as they ‘find where their puzzle piece fits’
is obvious to students the moment they walk through that door. Working as a team, spending
time one-on-one in the classroom, at meals and free time to answer all questions has been one
of the keys to see so many leave with confidence that they know what the Lord’s Direction might
be for them. That may or may not be in foreign missions and they know it is OK. We encourage
anyone of any age from 16 through retirement to meet our missionary staff by reading about them
below. They teach from many years of experience on the mission field and having a burden for lost
souls. In July, Dr. Bailes and I passed the CAMP BIMI baton to Dr. Snyder, Bro. Bohman and Dr.

Maldoff. They have taught at CB for several years. We continue to take missions training teams,
be in Christian colleges and missions conferences to encourage people to consider missions and the
part they can have in that.

As you read the articles
written by CB alumni
throughout this issue,
you’ll know why CAMP
BIMI is one of the most
helpful places to get
answers! They did!
Thank you, Bro. Trask!
