Deerfoot and World Missions
Deerfoot's historic interest in world missions grows naturally out of its mission to build godly men. Many Deerfoot alumni who have gone into missionary service report that their Deerfoot experience was formative to their calling and preparation for missionary service. Missionary work is promoted and an offering is taken to support missions during each session at camp.
In an effort to promote world missions before Deerfooters, we have established a list of 'endorsed' DL missionaries made up of alumni or ministries that have close ties to Deerfoot. DL endorsement means that we highlight the work of these missionaries as a global extension of Deerfoot's mission. While endorsement by DL does not include a promise of financial support from the camp, individual Deerfooters, as led by the Lord, are encouraged to contact DL-endorsed missionaries to subscribe to newsletters or provide personal support.
Missionaries interested in applying for DL endorsement can learn more about the criteria and application process here. Endorsed missionaries wishing to update their listing can email here.
