Meet Charlie Renner, Greene Hills Site Director
My Experience with Camp & Retreat Ministry: My earliest memories of Camp & Retreat ministry are of winter youth retreats at Mount Asbury.  These were great times of fellowship, food, and digging deep into God's word.  During my college days, I felt God's calling to pursue a full-time career in Christian Camp ministry.  I served on summer staff at Greene Hills Camp and at Mount Asbury, where I met my future wife, Joanna.  The Lord called me back to Greene Hills, in my new role as Site Director, in January 2011.  Since then, it has been a blessing to be a part of an amazing ministry at an amazing place.  

My favorite things about being involved in Camp & Retreat Ministry are: seeing and feeling the presence of God's love and grace in others (campers, guests, staff), working outdoors in God's beautiful creation, and having an extraordinarily wide range of job duties and tasks.  My days as a Site Director are never boring or mundane!  

Things I like to do with my family: My wife Joanna, and I have been married for 8 years.  We live at Greene Hills with our son Caleb (5) and daughter Grace (2).  We enjoy spending time at our church (Church of the Good Shepherd in Tyrone), participating in activities such as small group Bible Studies, VBS, pot-luck meals, and family game night.  We also enjoy hiking, finding new playgrounds to explore with the kids, visiting the beach, and camping.

Things I like to do in my free time: Life tends to keep me pretty busy, but whenever I have free time, I enjoy hiking in the woods, fishing, hunting, and spending time at our family cabin in Tioga County.  I also enjoy playing guitar and singing, preferably somewhere near a campfire.
