Ten years ago today at a Perkins restaurant in Ashland, OH, the original board of directors met to sign the documents to launch the ministry of On Target Outfitters. While we had many dreams of what could be, God had much bigger plans. What started with a trailer (no truck - literally the cart before the horse), a few sets of archery equipment and a couple of day camps has grown into a full-time endeavor with a beautiful property, a great team of volunteers and staff, and hundreds of kids and families.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.
1 Corinthians 2:9
This has been a journey that we could not have done alone. Thank you to all the families that have entrusted their kids to our care, to our volunteers and staff making our programs possible, and to the many donors who have invested in us.
We are excited to see what God has planned for our next 10 years.
For this "Throwback Thursday" post, here are a few photos from year one. See if you can identify some of these kids today.
