Eagle’s Nest Staff & Jobs
The Fehr Family (Peter, Martha, Bethany, Benjamin, Natalie)
We are excited to be part of SCA Eagles Nest ministry team! Having served at SCA Eagles Nest since 1999 in various roles, we look forward to what the Lord has for us in full-time ministry. As a family we seek to build and deepen relationships with our neighbours. One of the thrilling things about this ministry is being part of the vision of the greater church body in this area. We thank everyone who partners with us.
God in His faithfulness and incredible wisdom has called me back to this dear place; I am thrilled! I’ve been in and out of my hometown, La Crete for the past several years. The Lord revealed His character to me as a strong, solid rock, while I was moving back and forth and questioning my place in this life. I came to realize that no matter where I went, my journey with God continued right where it left off. God’s love and presence remained the same everywhere! As the Lord continued (and continues) to work in my life, to mould me into what He’s created me to be, He’s put a great burden on my heart to reach out to my neighbours. I have responded to God’s calling to be a part of the SCA ENMC’s team. I started this new endeavour on September 5, 2011. I’ve taken on the role as full-time Office Manager, and am also helping out in whatever ways needed.
I arrived in northern Alberta in this past summer; that’s a long way from my hometown of Lachute, Quebec. I believe the Lord has given me a heart for ministry among the First Nations people of Canada. I heard about SCA Eagle’s Nest from fellow students Jake and Anita Derksen (a couple from La Crete) while at Bible school, and when I finished there, coming to camp was about the only opportunity that opened up. My desire is to learn and gain more experience and this is a good place for doing that. I am staying at camp where I will work on some general maintenance and upkeep of the property, as well as helping out with whatever ministry opportunities may arise. Please pray that the Lord would continue to guide me clearly in whatever He has for me to do. God bless!
It is a privilege to be a part of what God is doing within the lives of the First Nations people and our neighboring communities! After spending a brief time nursing on some of these reserves, during the summer of 2012 I learned about SCA Eagle’s Nest and “officially” joined the team on November 1, 2012. I am looking forward to being able to connect more in relationships within these communities. “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” (Heb. 12:2) “…That all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the Lord, that it is mighty” (Joshua 4:24). It is encouraging to see how SCA Eagle’s Nest is an extension of the local church… a picture of the body of Christ laboring together with the goal of the gospel being shared. To God be the glory!
The Ruehl Family (Marcus, Marilyn, Malachi & Sophia)
I (Marcus) have enjoyed being a part of SCA Eagle’s Nest for over ten years, starting as a cook’s helper in 2001 and moving on to be a cabin counsellor. I met my wife Marilyn through camp and in recent years we have taken on a weekly Camp Director’s role. I have also been the volunteer committee secretary for several years and I have joined the SCA International Board as a local representative. It excites me to see the body of Christ work together to accomplish His purposes and I can’t think of a better example where La Crete, Fort Vermilion and High Level churches work together in unity and harmony to see God glorified and the gospel shared with the lost.
For God, Who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. – 2 Cor. 4:6
Thank you for all of your faithful support, GOD Bless!
