Ohio Youth Pastor Wins Vacation!
by Doug Clark
Gary and Debra Schrock are headed to Myrtle Beach for a vacation!
The Ohio youth leader of Berlin Christian Fellowship had his name drawn from over 100 attendees at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference in Louisville, Ky. on Monday. He and his family will enjoy at least a week at a golf-course home in South Carolina at a time to be worked out with the owner.
The drawing was part of the Network's partnership with Simply, where more than 100 people joined NNYM's membership, and started 14 new networks over the course of the weekend.
For Gary, who serves at his church and also works at a car dealership so he can work with the youth, the trip will provide a chance to enjoy his wife and three adult kids, plus a grandchild, for a getaway they couldn't otherwise afford.
"None of my kids could afford a vacation like this," he said. They will enjoy Myrtle Beach, hanging out at the pool together, and exploring historic Charleston.
"I never win contests like this," he exclaimed when NNYM staff texted him at SYMC to tell him his name had been drawn. "Is this for real?"
