Bud and his wife Rita come to Mt. Hope with a long history of serving in youth and children's camp ministries. They met in their early 20’s serving at Wolf Mt. Camp in Grass Valley. Bud was working as a counselor of a teen work crew and Rita was a lifeguard. Bud also worked as a young adult at Mt. Hope under Dave Delle. Later, when their four kids started attending church camps, they dove back into camp ministry. Bud volunteered as a medic and Rita as a counselor and later as an assistant director. Bud and Rita currently attend OroNaz Church in Oroville. Bud serves in youth ministries and helps wherever he is needed, and Rita is on staff working in children's ministries. Bud and Rita enjoy hanging out with family and friends and serving in various ministry and mission opportunities. Bud has an amazing testimony of how God led him back to serve at Mt Hope that he loves to share over a cup of coffee. Bud and Rita are excited for this new challenge God has given them and to see how God is going to work through their lives here at Mt. Hope Bible Camp

Board of Directors
Here at Mt. Hope we are blessed to have a Board of Directors that are unified by their desire to fulfill the "Great Commission" through Christian Camping. "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mt. 28:19-20) They are also committed to seeking God's will for Mt. Hope and are excellent stewards of the resources He provides.
