Why Hickory Cove?

Thank you for looking further into this exciting opportunity!

Hickory Cove has been around a long time.  We turn 60 in 2019!  It began in the late 50’s as Grace and Truth Bible Camp and later became Hickory Cove.

From the ministry’s inception, there was a desire to bring young hearts to Jesus and help them develop into His committed followers. In recent years, we have seen incredible growth and blessing as we serve approximately 3,000 people over the course of the year and about 1,000 during our summer programs.

While the ministry’s roots are as a summer camp, we continues to grow more and more into a discipleship ministry built around ongoing year-round relationships. The truly exciting thing is that there are more and more opportunities to minister in and around our community and partner with and serve a variety of Christian groups to point people to the Lord.
