Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Psalm 37:4
Dean and Lorie have always loved camp. Both of them made life directing decisions at camp in their youth, so it was no surprise when God led them into camp work full time. The wonderful surprise was, though, that God graciously let them meet and fall in love at Red Cliff. Both have been privileged to know and learn from the founder, Phil Tubbs, and his wife Lois, as well as from co-workers, Dick and Deirdre MacGill. Those couples’ choices to live lives of faith and dedication to the calling of God has strongly encouraged Dean and Lorie to do the same at Red Cliff for the past twenty years.
Dean and Lorie have been blessed with four wonderful children: Phillip, Ellie, Gannett, and Isaac. Together the Loftus family enjoys the ministry of Red Cliff, the beauty of the great outdoors (esp. on foot, on skis, or on snow machines), and the friendship of so many people God has brought across their paths. It is truly a privilege to serve at Red Cliff Bible Camp.

Dick and Deirdre MacGill moved to Pinedale to work with Red Cliff Bible Camp in July 1975, immediately after Dick graduated from Frontier School of the Bible. Dick met Phil Tubbs and helped search for a camp property the year before. Dick worked under the leadership of Phil from that time until Phil’s home-going in 1986. At the request of the Camp Board, Dick became director of the camp for the following four years. In 1992, Dean Loftus stepped up into the position of Director and Dick returned to what he most enjoyed and where he feels his gift is- maintenance (of both buildings and vehicles), construction, and cooking in Dutch ovens for the Red Cliff Chuck Wagon. Deirdre has assisted in various areas as needed. She has done book-keeping for the Camp since 1986 and led the camper registration team for a number of years. Currently she is also working with the Higher Grounds coffee shop.

The Heyboers’ Bible verse is Psalm 27:14 – “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.” What an awesome and amazing God we serve! Keith began serving as Program Director at Red Cliff Bible Camp on June 1, 2019. We are excited for the opportunity to work at Red Cliff, using every facet of camp to break down barriers in the lives of the campers, allowing the Holy Spirit to work in each heart.
