Cameron Boys Camp
Cameron Boys Camp, a ministry of the Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH), is a therapeutic wilderness camp for troubled boys. It is an alternative, non-public school whose primary goal is to foster happy, well-adjusted boys confident and eager to learn. Located on 902 wooded acres, the camp offers the freedom of being outdoors and the structure of small groups with constant, caring supervision. Boys live in groups of ten with three counselors called “Chiefs.” With the help of their peers and Chiefs, each camper learns discipline, positive behavior patterns, and self-worth. Residential wilderness camping uses a team, or group-work approach, to help boys grow socially, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. The goal is to build positive, healthy relationships that hopefully will transfer to their home situation. Campers and their Chiefs plan daily activities such as building their own living shelters, cutting wood, cooking meals two days each week, maintaining equipment and trails, planning trips and, importantly, having fun! As authentic adult role models, Chiefs wear many hats – from counselor to friend to teacher. Solid values and strong standards are the backdrop of a Chief’s life. They are deeply involved in the boys’ lives, daring to love unconditionally, building relationships, and challenging them to grow and succeed.
Camp Duncan is a wilderness camping experience designed to give girls and their families an opportunity to work out problems through a highly structured alternative service designed to help them grow socially, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically, and academically. Therapeutic camping takes a team, or group-work approach to building relationships between camp staff , the family and the camper. Through these relationships, deep hurts are healed and lives are changed. Located on more than 600 acres, Camp Duncan offers the freedom of being outdoors and the structure of small groups with constant, caring supervision. Girls live in groups of ten with three counselors, called “Chiefs.” With the help of their peers and Chiefs, campers learn discipline, positive behavior patterns, and self worth. Camp spirit and team effort are vital. A girl at camp soon learns that she is an important part not only of her success, but also of the success of her group.
Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) is a ministry that exists so that everyone at Sandhills Community College has an opportunity to hear and respond to the love of Jesus Christ. We desire to provide a place for students and faculty to be introduced to the Gospel, grow in their faith, and then sent out as life-long laborers for Christ through discipleship, Bible studies, retreats, and regional conferences. We are trusting (and asking) that the Lord would continue to raise up student leaders and that students would truly invest their lives well while in college and beyond. We hope to challenge and see students attend our conference opportunities and our summer missions opportunities (especially as we partner with college campuses in Senegal).
Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care is a state-chartered, non-profit corporation founded in 1986 by 12 concerned churches that provides numerous different services to thousands of Moore County residents on an annual basis. More than 75 area churches currently support these efforts to meet the emergency needs of Moore County neighbors by providing food, clothing and financial resources. Each weekday, volunteers and staff work together to provide emergency services to residents of Moore County. Clients are given an opportunity to privately discuss their needs with a trained volunteer. The Coalition not only helps with food, but also provides transportation, financial assistance, clothing and employment services.
Friend to Friend offers emergency shelter and services for victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking victims. This ministry began in 1988 as a way to serve victims in Moore County regardless of socioeconomic, religious, or immigration status. We serve all persons, but primarily women and children. Friend to Friend is the only agency of its kind in Moore County. To achieve its mission, it offers a free crisis line that operates 24/7, emergency housing at an undisclosed, secure shelter, court advocacy program and sexual assault advocacy programs, court accompaniment, community education, counseling services, hospital accompaniment, legal aid, referrals to substance abuse recovery programs, mental health support, and referrals to other community resources.
Manor Care Nursing Home provides short and long-term as well as post-surgery care for Pinehurst and surrounding area residents. Members of CCC assist by sharing God’s word and love with those who find themselves moving into a new season of their lives. Residents are encouraged through scripture showing that God has a purpose for them where they are. Through weekly Bible studies, activities and visits from volunteers, CCC pastors and music ministry members provide church services the first Sunday of each month. The Faithful Friends ministry also plans events throughout the year as well as holiday celebrations. We never forget that it is a privilege and honor to minister to the residents in the last season of their lives as they prepare for their final destination, Heaven.
Life Care Pregnancy Center (LCPC) is a non-profit organization and a Christ-centered ministry that promotes the sanctity of human life through Christian direction, compassionate care, accurate information, and assistance for individuals and families facing unplanned pregnancies, or related crises. LCPC is committed to offering free assistance to women who are pregnant or have children under 2 years of age. We offer hope for facing the future by assisting them to develop a plan for themselves and their children. This ministry never discriminates, but seeks to represent the love of Christ to all regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, age, or the marital status of its clients. It is LCPC’s policy to never advise, provide for, or refer women for abortion, or pro-abortion counseling.
Young Life believes that high school and middle school students are awesome and deserve to know what life can hold for them. Its leaders are caring adults who share hope and the possibility of lasting friendships with high school friends. From club and camp to Campaigners and other activities, teenagers laugh and try new things gettin’ crazy about life! Young Life is active at Pinecrest and Union Pines High Schools and maintains a growing presence at The O’Neal School. Through the middle school initiative called WyldLife, we are involved at Southern, New Century and West Pine Middle Schools as well as O’Neal. Young Life is making a difference! For example, at one high school where “John” served as a Young Life leader, he began to attend the basketball practices. After a time, one of the players approached him. “You come to watch us practice a lot, don’t you?” he asked. “Yes, I do,” John said. “That’s cool,” the player said. “Nobody does that.”
The Mother’s Morning Out (MMO) program at CCC provides parents with a safe and fun place to leave their children ages 1-3 while they take a much-needed break. While at MMO, the children learn about the love of Jesus through Bible stories, songs, crafts and the care and attention of their teachers. MMO hopes to not only support those families that already have a home church and a relationship with Jesus, but also to connect and build a relationship with those who may not.
Family Promise of Moore County (FPMC) provides shelter, meals and case management services to homeless mothers with children. FPMC partners with more than 20 churches in the Moore County area to support families and encourage them to achieve independent living. Christ Community Church has been a vital partner in this ministry for more than five years. Volunteers build bridges of understanding and love by providing dinner and serving as overnight hosts to families.
Sal DiBianca and his wife, Debby, founders of the Sandhills Teen Challenge ministry, have served for more than 29 years as its directors helping youths, adults and families alike. Since pioneering the men’s residential recovery program in 1987, thousands of men, ages 18 and older, have received hope and healing as they commit to overcome drug and alcohol addiction. An ideal place for recovery, the Sandhills Adult & Teen Challenge facility is located on 31 tranquil acres in the heart of Moore County. The 12-month residential program offers food, clothing, a warm bed, and academic materials as well as the spiritual, emotional, vocational and academic training needed to overcome the problems that led to addiction. Sandhills Adult & Teen Challenge truly is “Bringing Wholeness to the Hopeless.”
Sandhills Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) at CCC is on a mission to celebrate motherhood as a community of women who love one another as family. MOPS connects moms within our community to experience the love of Jesus through each other. MOPS meets at CCC every other Wednesday from 9 -11 a.m. enjoying uninterrupted conversation and guest speakers. Our MOPPETS program offers loving attention, creative activities, and brunch for children. Play dates, community projects and leadership opportunities are abundant! Motherhood is celebrated as we unite to impact our families and the world for Christ.
The Motorcycle Ministry of CCC is a unique outreach to the community of biking enthusiasts regardless of church attendance or affiliation. It offers an opportunity to meet like-minded people who find pleasure in traversing the open road with the wind in their face and observing the beauty of God’s creation all around. The power of a motorcycle can be exhilarating, but in the process of harnessing that power, there is freedom to clear the mind and escape from the cares and monotony of everyday life. In addition to meeting on a regular basis, bikers participate in rides designed to raise money for worthy organizations such as Teen Challenge and Cameron Boys Camp. The camaraderie of those who enjoy this sport makes it possible for us to share the love of Christ whether through word or deed.
