Joe cares deeply about people and their growth. Over the years this calling has taken a variety of forms: through eleven years at Twin Rocks Friends Camp planning and facilitating programs for children, youth, and adults; through the exploration of church history and Christian spirituality during his years in seminary; through his role coaching leaders and teams as a change consultant at Providence Health; and most recently as Director of Engagement and Culture at George Fox University. Beyond his work, Joe desires to pursue God’s calling by being a husband and father that demonstrates Christ to his family through both his words and actions. He has been married to Stephanie for 17 years and has two children, Hope (13) and Tad (10). Perhaps his greatest joy is seeing his children become more and more aware of the unique ways God has created them and the deep love God has for them.
Mark Johnson is an Associate Pastor at Northside Community Church in Newberg, and has many fond memories as a camper and counselor at Tilikum. Mark’s wife Elissa is a nurse, and he has a son, Micah (11) and a daughter, Sonya (7). Mark is excited to lead worship and spend time with other Fathers/Daughters at this retreat!

Cost for Family Weekends
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Tilikum has instituted a three-tier fee program. Tiered pricing is intended to help families recognize the full cost of Camp and then select the level that is most suitable for their family circumstances. By choosing to pay the full cost, Tilikum is able to offer financial assistance to families that need it. Please select the appropriate tier at the time of registration.
Scholarships are available for those who qualify. [LEARN MORE]
