I am thankful to be serving as a Director at Green Valley Bible Camp! After attending Harding University for undergrad (B.A. Management & Ministry) and working in the Admissions Office as a traveling recruiter for 4 years, I am thankful to be in full-time ministry. Church camp has always been a pivotal part of my life. For teens, specifically, this can be a life-changing experience. I take very seriously the challenge to embrace teens where they are, challenge growth in their own faith, and then to disciple others! Excited to see how God moves at GVBC!

I grew up going to Green Valley Bible Camp and it holds a very special place in my heart. It gave me the
opportunity to build a strong foundation for my faith and is where I gave my life to Christ through baptism. While attending college at the University of Arkansas, I became very involved in the college ministry Razorbacks for Christ and began working for them as an intern. Through that experience, I found an absolute love for ministry, then God led me to Bentonville church of Christ. Church camp can be life changing; I know it was for me. I want to help create an impactful experience for campers that will allow their faith to grow. I’m very excited to serve as a Co-Director this year!

I grew up in NWA and started going to GVBC when I was 10. I started with day camp and then when I was old enough got to go to overnight camp. I always signed up for Marshall Brown’s week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was baptized in the pool by my grandfather. Now I have my own children and they are starting to attend camp. I am excited to be a Director at camp.

Danny Boggs has been preaching the gospel for more than 30 years and has worked with the Hillcrest church of Christ in Neosho, Missouri since 2005. He became a Christian after a pivotal week at Bible camp in 1982. He has worked in Bible camps for more than 30 years. 2023 will be Danny’s 19th year at Green Valley Bible Camp and 13th as Director of week 2. Danny loves helping young people become Christians and grow as disciples of Christ. He is really thankful for a great group of faithful Christian counselors who support the camp sessions to ensure the young people enjoy a week that will be faith-building and fun. The theme for week 2 this summer is “The Way”. (Overnight Camp Week 2, June 11-17).

I have been going to Green Valley pretty much my entire life. My dad was a director, so I got to go to camp earlier than most kids. From a very young age the one thing that I looked forward to most out of my summer was Green Valley. I met my wife at camp in the 8th grade, and a few years later we got engaged on the softball field up the hill. Green Valley is a very special place to both of us. I am excited to share the word of God with the youth of our area. I pray that all who attend Green Valley will leave a better Christian than when they came, and that they will strive to tell others about Jesus.
I am super excited about directing camp this year! Camp week is an excellent time for some serious bonding, great fun, and a prime environment to challenge ourselves and each other spiritually. I have only attended Green Valley once but could tell from my first experience that this is no ordinary camp! It has a legendary following and for good reason. The lack of A/C and the softball create some of the strongest camaraderie around and makes this one of the best weeks of the summer. I am incredibly blessed to be directing this year and can't wait to be involved in so many fun memories to come! Hope to see you there!!!

Chris Brill is currently serving as the Family/Youth Minister for the Mountain Home Church of Christ. Prior to that he was the Youth Minister for the Greenbrier Church of Christ and in administration for Southern Christian Home and Hope Harbor. He has a B.S.E. from the University of Arkansas and a B.Th. from Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver.
Chris isn’t new to Green Valley. He served GVBC in several capacities for several years beginning in 1990--lifeguard, camp assistant, and week 7 counselor. He has a true passion for GVBC because it gave him spiritual direction by introducing him to many Christlike individuals--most importantly, Bobby and Loreta Vaughn (former Camp Director) and Bill and Kay McFarland (former Week 7 Camp Director). Both couples he describes as highly influencing his spiritual growth and even his marriage to Shirley Brill. They have three children and three grandchildren.
“I do not take lightly the responsibility the GVBC board has asked me to undertake as the new Director of Week 7. Likewise, I do not take it so seriously that I think that the week has become mine. The heart and work of the week is represented by all the counselors who continued to come back year after year as led by Bill. I look forward to carrying on that wonderful tradition.”

GVBC is a special place to me. I grew up attending as a camper. I committed my life to Christ in baptism while attending Green Valley Bible Camp. I had so many great memories as a camper and now I’m thrilled that in some small way I can help give that same experience to campers today. If you’ve never been to Green Valley you HAVE to come join us. I promise you will love it!

I grew up in Ozark, MO and went to Harding University where I studied Bible. I worked as a youth minister in Artesia, NM with the Hermosa Dr. Church of Christ for four years. I then moved to Rogers AR to work with the Southside Church of Christ three days before the Rogers week session of Green Valley in 2005 and I fell in love with GVBC right away. Some of the greatest events in my life occurred at church camp from my baptism at a camp in KS to both meeting and later marrying my wife Megan at Green Valley. I think that this camp is one of the greatest opportunities in existence to come closer to God alongside other amazing young people who are trying to do the same.
