Dean and Joy Guthrie

Oklahoma

Dean Guthrie is the Children's Ministry Director for the Oklahoma District Assemblies of God. He and his wife, Joy, oversee ministry opportunities for kids from birth to 12 yrs old. Those opportunities include Royal Rangers, Girl's Ministries, BGMC, Junior Bible Quiz, and serving as directors for our district kids’ camp. They also travel to churches across the state holding kids’ crusades and family-themed services. They have two children, D.J. and Tori, that are a big part of their ministry as well.

Camp Volunteers

I once heard what I thought was the perfect description of kids’ camp for a child. It was in an online article. The author was Dick Gruber. He described kids’ camp through the eyes of a child, as a week-long glimpse of what heaven is going to be like. I wholeheartedly agree with this statement. However, in the running of kids’ camps, kids are not the only ones that are a part of the kids’ camp experience. It’s the children’s pastors, moms and dads, and volunteers that help you achieve that goal for our kids.
