Hidden Acres

Christian Camping ministry of EFCA Central

Hidden Acres Christian Center

From a modest start in 1979, Hidden Acres is now the largest camp in Iowa and one of the most significant in the entire Midwest. With a campus that covers 640 acres, it is able to accommodate large groups but also provide intimacy for smaller groups. While they provide excellent summer camps for all ages, they have the ability to provide programmed retreats and to host retreats that you design. Growth has required us to recently complete a state of the art dining center that can handle 1,000 guests. The ministry of this camp is one of the greatest blessings of our EFCA Central. Contact Hidden Acres today to schedule your retreat!

Reach Students Central District (RSCD)

Student Ministry of EFCA Central

Student Ministries

The goal of Reach Students Central District (RSCD) is to encourage, equip, and serve the churches and leaders of the EFCA Central as they build ministries that lead students to follow Jesus.

Rob Sanders and Brent Thomas along with the entire RSCD Support Team, are here to help you understand and grow your ministry. There is always an open invitation for any youth pastor or volunteer leader to join us at any of the "every-six-weeks" morning meetings. These gatherings are always followed by lunch to build relationships while discussing and planning ministry.

EFCA Central Women in Ministry Leadership

Women's Ministry

Women are called to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ and His call to them as His disciples.   Established in 2023, the role of this ministry is to encourage and equip women in ministry leadership roles within their churches in spiritual growth and leadership development, as well as disciplemaking the next generation of leaders.  This includes women’s ministry, children’s ministry, youth ministry, worship, and administrative roles.  

We support the mission of the EFCA and EFCA Central - to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people. And we honor the EFCA’s position regarding women and ordination, which is reserved for men. If you are looking for a speaker at a women’s event, need guidance with establishing or growing your church’s women’s ministry, or to attend a training event, contact Mary Lou McDowell (mmcdowell@efcacentral.org) for more information.
