Ambassadors Soccer Camp was offered during the summer of 2023 from July 31 through August 2, with an average attendance of 67 per evening. We sponsored the camp for the thirteenth year, and cooperated with ONELife Community Church in presenting it. Lord willing, the dates for camp in 2024 will be August 5 through 8.
In 2022 we welcomed approximately seventy children each evening. Children had fun, learned many skills about soccer, and learned about Christ’s good news! RRPC sponsored the camp in cooperation with OneLife Community Church and with the help of believers from a total of six local Christian congregations.

Head Coaches Chris Miller and Nick Miller from OneLife Community Church orchestrate the action on the field, and Pastor Ned directs the camp, with his wife Lois providing registration skills and organization. In addition to our cooperating church, RRPC has received enthusiastic support for the camp over the past ten years from some of the youth and adults of Adamsville Community Church, Durkeetown Baptist, Pine Knolls, New Hope Church, Truthville Baptist, and New Creation Church for which we are very grateful. Financial support comes from Christians in Orange City, Iowa who have caught a vision for reaching out in the name of Christ in the greater Glens Falls area. We are grateful for their partnership. Contact Pastor Ned at 518-932-1967 for information about the camp, including registration.
Ambassadors Football in Ohio imparted this soccer camp ministry philosophy to us through the on-site mentoring of a former high student of Pastor Ned when he taught at Stony Brook School in the early 1980’s. From 2010 through 2023, Ambassadors Football has provided a high quality “Bible Time” sets of lessons which we use to present the good news of Christ clearly.
