Heavenly Hills is not defined by our physical location but by the loving bond shared in our community. Meet some of our family--our attentive Heavenly Hills Staff, our dedicated Supporting Churches, and our current Summer Staff.
Heavenly Hills Staff
A little about our Camp Directors
Seth and Mary Beth Sponsler have been in full time ministry together since 1995. They have served as youth pastors, associate pastors, and have provided pastoral care to missionaries and leaders through Bending the Bow International, a ministry they founded in 2008. Mary Beth is a Registered Nurse and Seth was formerly a High School Teacher, Athletic Director & Coach, as well as a pastor. They have three children living in California: Josiah, Jonathan, and Hannah. Joshua, their oldest, is married to Madison; they live in Texas where they are attending Bible College. Seth and Mary Beth were raised in Tuolumne County and are passionate about helping others encounter Jesus and grow in their relationship with him.
A little about our Camp Managers
Jamison and Hannah Glazebrook are native Oregonians who were born in the same city, by the same doctor, and even went to the same summer camp, but did not meet until their college years at Boise Bible College. They graduated in 2016 and afterward gained experience in youth ministry, adventure expeditions, and youth counseling. They love exploring the outdoors with their two dogs Denali and Juneau. Jack joined the little family on June 14th, 2019 and Rose joined up two years later on May 30th, 2021. They are both looking forward to exploring their own 40-Acre Wood at Heavenly Hills. The Glazebrooks are passionate about investing in people's lives, especially youth, in order to encourage, equip, and care for them in their present and for their future.
