About This Camp
The Houston County Turkey Camp began the weekend of March 17-19, 2017 with host Dr. Don Spillers. Don was already involved with 30-30 Ministries after hosting his first Deer Camp in December 2013. He decided to increase his ministry involvement with the introduction of a 2017 Turkey Camp.
Before Don’s first Deer Camp in 2013, God was dealing with him about getting involved in some sort of ministry. One day while Don was working at his orthodontic practice in Warner Robins, a man walked in asking for donations for an upcoming 30-30 Ministries’ Turkey Camp at Ruth Baptist Church in Bleckley County, Ga. It was that conversation that spurred Don to contact 30-30 Ministries about hosting a Deer Camp, which in turn led to his Turkey Camp.
Phil Collier & Hal Keels
Phil Collier first saw a 30-30 Ministries’ Camp the weekend of April 1-3, 2022 while at the Houston County Turkey Camp hosted by Dr. Don Spillers. Being completely on board with the spiritual fruit he witnessed that weekend, he brought his friend Hal Keels back to Don’s Deer Camp the weekend of Dec. 9-11, 2022. Their first stint as co-Camp Managers was at Don’s March 24-26, 2023 Turkey Camp. Currently, they serve as Camp Managers for both of Don’s Houston County Camps.
Hal said that he accepted Christ as his savior in 1980, while Phil did so in 1968. However, both share that it was later in life as young adults when they truly sold out to Jesus and began to serve Him with their whole hearts. Hal says it was during those times when Jesus truly became Lord of their lives.
Hal and Phil are both members of Windmark Beach Church with Senior Pastor Scott White, who has spoken at several 30-30 Ministries’ Camps. WBC is a church plant of Hiland Park Baptist Church in Panama City, Fla. and recently celebrated their one-year anniversary. Hal says, “During this time we have seen many people accept Christ and have baptized 38. Our attendance has grown to more than 300, but our greatest joy is to see people make Jesus Lord of their lives. This is the same reason we are excited to be a part of 30-30 Ministries.”
