<strong>2023</strong>-<strong>2024</strong> OFF-SEASON PROGRAM GUIDE


Our History<br />

In May, 1869 a group of Methodist ministers felt called to search along the New<br />

Jersey coast for a suitable camp meeting location - a place of respite where<br />

“religion and recreation should go hand in hand.” After an extended search,<br />

they came upon a virtually uninhabited grove of trees, free from mosquitoes<br />

which had tormented them at other sites previously visited and pleasantly<br />

surrounded by two lakes and the Atlantic Ocean. Despite its isolation, Ocean<br />

Grove’s founders later wrote that, “it seemed to us that a more magnificent<br />

site for cottages could hardly be found.


From that humble start, Ocean Grove grew and continued to provide a place<br />

of respite for those seeking to come away from the hectic pace of life.<br />

Permanent buildings were added for worship and cottages were established<br />

year ’round until an entire community was formed. The original members of<br />

the Association laid out what would become one of the first planned<br />

communities of the Victorian age.<br />

In 1870 the New Jersey State Legislature granted a charter, setting Ocean<br />

Grove aside as a place of perpetual worship to Jesus Christ. Promoting that<br />

original purpose remains vital as the Camp Meeting continues to provide a<br />

place for spiritual birth, growth, and renewal in a Christian seaside setting.<br />

Our lives today are even more hectic than Ocean Grove’s founders could have<br />

ever imagined, the tyranny of the urgent often drives us, and a place of peace<br />

and relaxation is just as necessary to rejuvenate body and soul. We invite you<br />

to discover today what Ocean Grove’s founders did 150+ years ago. Indeed, “a<br />

more magnificent site,” can still hardly be found.


Off-Season Recap<br />

It's been an incredible inaugural season and what a privilege it has<br />

been to see God's hand on this ministry.<br />

We have had amazing attendance in the off-season despite cold<br />

nights, rainy days, and long drives from out-of-towners. People are<br />

still drawn to God's square mile because the presence of the Lord is<br />

the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow!<br />

Traveling from as far as Brooklyn, Dumont, and Little Egg Harbor,<br />

families came from all over to experience God in Ocean Grove in a<br />

whole new way in the off-season. From Family Movie Nights,<br />

Homeschool Ministry, Worship Nights, and various conferences, we<br />

are so grateful for all that God continues to do through the ministry of<br />

Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association. Even after 150+ years,<br />

Ocean Grove continues to be a place of perpetual worship to Jesus<br />

Christ.<br />

We look forward this season to continue to provide opportunities for<br />

spiritual birth, growth and renewal through worship, educational,<br />

cultural, and recreational programs for persons of all ages in a<br />

Christian seaside setting.


“I have attended and led<br />

worship at conferences for<br />

30 years - this was top<br />

notch outstanding.”<br />

“No wonder it's called God's Square Mile<br />

because He was definitely present this<br />

weekend! My soul was definitely refreshed!<br />

Thank you!”<br />

“Thanks so<br />

much for all<br />

that you're<br />

doing with<br />

this program.<br />

My kids are<br />

new and had<br />

a wonderful<br />

time on<br />

Wednesday!”<br />

“The speakers were solid, the<br />

gospel was brought and the<br />

whole event was gospelcentered."
