Event description


Spend a great weekend with us at Camp Greystone, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Tuxedo, NC. Ask your campus minister to find out which week you are attending.


Week 1:

Ben Milner

Ben Milner grew up in Winston-Salem on the campus of Wake Forest. He was an atheist in college until he met Margie Morgan in London. During a semester abroad she mesmerized him with the beauty and majesty of Jesus Christ. He converted to Christianity that Christmas break as he read CS Lewis' Mere Christianity. He graduated from Wake the next year and followed Margie to Richmond Virginia where she was starting Physical Therapy school. He asked for Margie's hand in marriage that fall. She accepted.

For 3 years they lived in Richmond: she as a student, he as a High School Physics teacher and basketball coach. During that time God clearly called Ben to Seminary and after a very difficult struggle he and Margie headed to Princeton NJ. He graduated with an M.Div. (a bit of a surprise) and decided to accept a call as a pastoral intern at Redeemer. During their last semester in Princeton, Margie gave birth to their first of two children (Rosabelle, 5). Cooper, 3, was born two years later. Ben was elected to be an Associate Pastor in 2006.

Week 2:

Shawn Slate

The Slates

Shawn graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Biological Sciences. He spent about a year working for an achitecture firm as the "office jester" before serving as the youth director at Clemson Presbyterian Church until moving to St. Louis, MO to attend Covenant Theological Seminary in 1999. He graduated in 2002 and was ordained as the the Assistant Pastor of The Covenant Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, MO.

In the Spring of 2005 the Presbyterian Church in America called him to move to Charlottesville in order to serve the students at the University of Virginia. He is blessed with a fantabulous wife, Jennifer and three children (William-13; Mary Austin-10; and Annabel 7).

There are also tennis courts, basketball courts, a football/ultimate frisbee field, etc., if you want to bring your sports equipment.
