Evan and Faith Latham
Special Programming Directors

Evan grew up in North Dakota and Faith grew up in Georgia. They met at college in Minnesota and got married this past August. Evan worked at Deer Creek Camp the summer of 2019 as a camp counselor. Evan and Faith felt the Lord calling them to ministry in the states rather than overseas where they originally had planned. Evan oversees Water Safety as the head lifeguard and will also be the trip director that will lead the three day camping trips that take place for the SBTW campers. Faith will be co directing the camping trip as well as overseeing the camp store. They are so excited to be working at Deer Creek Camp and learning all about what a ministry entails.
