Greeting from the President

Worship.  Whether you’re looking for great preaching, choir singing, Bible teaching, or godly encouragement — in this sacred location, the Holy Spirit will inspire your soul to enter into the awesome presence of Almighty God.  Ocean Grove was founded in a prayer meeting on July 31, 1869 and the land was set aside for the perpetual worship of Jesus Christ. We’re all about worship in the Grove.

Renew.  Whether you entrusted your heart and soul to God decades ago or only yesterday, Ocean Grove is the perfect place to be renewed in your commitment to be a disciple. The vision of the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association is to be the seaside community where all generations can know and grow in Jesus. Every summer since our first, the presence of God’s Holy Spirit has refreshed believers, provided assurance of salvation, and heightened hope for a bright future!

Relax. Ocean Grove is home to a globally award-winning beach. So while you are renewing your commitment to be a disciple, come refresh in the clean ocean waters and bask in the sun on the beach. Stroll along our new boardwalk while enjoying the sounds of gulls and waves. Stop for ice cream at the local parlors and discover your new favorite flavor. Shop locally for your next treasure. Soak up an organ recital and a Saturday night concert; there’s always something going on in God’s Square Mile at the Jersey Shore. 

I look forward to seeing you in Ocean Grove this summer.

Michael J. Badger
President, OGCMA
