Attend Mountain View Conference 2022 Camp Meeting

Through the years, there have been many dynamic speakers and baptismal decisions made on the beautiful grounds of Valley Vista Adventist Center. We expect this year’s camp meeting to be the same, as the 2022 line-up of speakers and activities won’t disappoint.

To the hundreds and thousands of individuals who live around the camp community, we will have an open invitation on the first weekend to come to our Gospel Jamboree, featuring The Lesters, along with talented musicians from the Mountain View Conference. The rest of the week will follow with gospel presentations geared for the whole family.

Each morning after breakfast, we will gather to enjoy a “family style” worship with Uncle Jon from Your Story Hour. The remainder of the morning will include programming for all ages. In the afternoon, there will be a two-hour slot for social activities: swimming, horseback riding, caving, cycling, tubing, a zipline/ropes course and more. There will be an afternoon meeting and a featured speaker each evening.

We pray the entire camp meeting time will motivate and spiritually inspire us all. Come join us as we prepare to “tell everybody about Jesus.”--Tim Bailey, Mountain View Conference president


The Mountain View Conference English Camp Meeting will be held at Valley Vista Adventist Center, Huttonsville, W.Va., June 24–July 2. | Find out more at

The Lesters’
greatest desire is to carry the message of Jesus Christ to others! Brian Lester’s grandparents, Harvey and Opal, began this Christian music ministry in the 1920s. The current group is comprised of Brian (left), his son, Jonathan, and daughter-in-law, Bailee. They are dedicated to leading people to Jesus by sharing the joy of Christ through music and personal testimony.
