"The Camps Farthest Out are dedicated to the purpose of discovering the wholeness of that abundant life which Christ promised, that life which is our rightful heritage whenever we dedicate our body, mind, and soul completely to God through play, work, and worship. We invite our campers to enter the kindergarten of creativity and discover all the joyous opportunities for normal spiritual expression… the highest art of life is a living prayer."
-- Glenn Clark

2017 SpeakersBarbara Deal
Life is a mystery to be lived, a journey into God to be explored.
Barbara began to discover this mystery and wonder in CFO as a teenager. Her first camp was a transformational experience of coming home, finding true spiritual family. It fired her lifelong yearning for the life of the Spirit.
The adventure led to working for church and parachurch organizations in pastoral counseling, youth and music ministries, and as a CFO leader, before serving as coordinator, with husband Bob, of CFO International for 15 years. CFOI took them to 27 countries to share in camps, train leaders, nurture prayer groups and plant the seeds of CFO.
More recently Barbara established a literary agency that specialized in working with authors to develop and publish books examining mind (psychology, self-help), body (holistic living, integrative health) and spirit (spiritual growth, mysticism, philosophy and new frontiers in consciousness.)
Over the past 15 years her life took an unexpected turn, caring for four beloved family members through their latter years, final illnesses, and the deep learning and enrichment of walking hand in hand with each of them to the door of Eternity.
Barbara will explore with us some of the great mysteries: learning to discern and embrace God's plan for our lives, to see each event and person in our lives as a gift from God, and the greatest gift: learning to embody the mind of Christ for the healing of the world.
Like many of us, Jay has been influenced in immeasurable ways by the writings of Glenn Clark and the experience of the CFO camp. A camper at Winni CFO for 33 years, he comes prepared to discuss how those experiences have expanded his vision, built a foundation of visceral prayer in his life and shaped his contributions as husband, father, scoutmaster, volunteer emergency medical technician and network engineer. Stories of success and failure on the path to, "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, [and] give thanks in all circumstances…"
"…The Camps Farthest Out are the unformalized, silent, creeping leaven that is needed to revitalize a dying civilization." -- Charlotte M. Clough quoting Starr Daily, from the preface to The Way of Holy Affection
