Celebration: 125 years - Holiness to the Lord

Psalm 145:4-7
One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works and I will proclaim your great deeds. They celebrate your abundant goodnessand joyfully sing of your righteousness.

Dear Friends,

We write as the board of the Wilmore Camp Meeting who have seen “wonderful works” of God in
our hearts and in the lives of others, who have experienced His “great deeds”. This year marks 125 years since the camp began making a time and a place for many to come and receive the fullness of life in Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. John Wesley Hughes and Henry Clay Morrison first held camp revivals in 1890. Over the years God’s Word has been faithfully proclaimed “from one generation to another.” Many have given themselves fully to Jesus and welcomed Him to transform their hearts in His holiness. Others have heard His call on their lives and allowed Him to lead them
in His Kingdom’s work. Imagine all the eternal, mighty works Jesus has done over those 125 years
at every altar call and in every heart. It is surely time to celebrate His “abundant goodness.”

As a board we have prayerfully come to the decision that the season of Wilmore Camp Meeting is ending, as many new opportunities and ministries are available in Kentucky for those who are hungry to grow in Christ. We would like to end the camp by telling what the Lord has done down through the generations and praising Him for His presence and grace in touching many lives. We are excited to return to the original campground for our celebration. If you have any photos or memorabilia of the Wilmore Camp Meeting or if you would like to write a brief testimony about how the camp made a difference in your life that we could share at the event, please contact:
