Montana Conference Announces 2023 Camp Meeting

Last summer, Montana Conference Camp Meeting ended on a high note, and we plan to pick up right where we left off. We are preparing for a fantastic week with great speakers, hobby classes, food, fellowship and of course, at its core, Jesus.

Camp meeting starts on Wednesday, July 12 and ends Saturday night, July 15. Our featured speaker will be Derek Morris. Morris currently serves as president of Hope Channel International, Inc. and host of Hope Sabbath School, an in-depth interactive study of the Word of God broadcast worldwide on Hope Channel. Born in England, his greatest joy is helping people experience a life-changing encounter with Jesus.

We will continue our hobby classes and breakout sessions for adults on Thursday and Friday. Last year, these classes and breakouts were a huge success. While many of them will return, new ones will be added. Whether you want to learn how to hold a Bible study, paint with acrylics, garden or share your faith, you'll want to be there for these workshops.

If you're looking for some relaxing time outside with your family or friends, we are floating on the Madison River on Thursday. On Friday afternoon, we reserved the pavilion at Hyalite Canyon. This is a great place to hike, swim, paddleboard or canoe. If these excursions don't interest you, there will be things to do on the campus of MEA in the afternoon.

Watchmen A cappella will bless us with a musical concert to close out the Sabbath. This a cappella group is different in its mission, as they help reduce tuition rates for other students who need help financially. In 2017, six students from six countries established Watchmen at Andrews University. You can learn more about their ministry and music at

We look forward to seeing you at MEA for Montana Conference Camp Meeting 2023. As always, plans may change, additions will be made and more details will be shared. For more details and the most up-to-date information, visit
