Young at Heart – August 2024

August 25 - August 30

Join us for our 2024 Summer Conference Season here at America’s Keswick!

Young at Heart – August 2024

Sunday – Friday, August 25th – 30th, 2024


Our theme is “Embraced: Renewed in God’s Delight” focusing on Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT), “For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”




Rev. Chris McCarrick

In 1979, Chris McCarrick received Christ, got married and moved from NJ to Oregon where he became grounded in the faith at Applegate Christian Fellowship with Pastor Jon Courson. There he began to serve in the ministry in various ways. Years later he returned to NJ, where he became involved in Calvary Chapel Old Bridge until the Lord called him to Toms River.

In 1994, his small home group grew into a church, Cornerstone Calvary Chapel which is now Cornerstone Church in Howell, NJ. After 26 years, his son, Mike is taking on the role of Senior Pastor at Cornerstone, but he will be remaining as a support in the ministry in a new role. Now, since then he has joined Poimen Ministries, which exists to strengthen pastors as they strengthen churches. He, along with his wife, Marion, have had the opportunity to travel and come alongside pastors and encourage them.

He, along with Pastor Lloyd Pulley had a vision to see radio in this area before The Bridge Christian Radio existed and his radio ministry, Upon This Rock,  has aired on The Bridge since it began. It can be heard daily at 4:30am.



Music & Worship:

Jeff & Sue Duffield

Aside from the fact that they have new life doing contemporary hymns and even the “Oldies”, they have always been exceptional and creative artists. Since the early 70s, while Jeff and Sue had major media venues of opportunity and exposure (PTL Club, 700 Club, 100 Hundred Huntley Street – Canada) they never strived for commercial success. Sue not only has an incredible vocal ability, she also writes much of the material they perform.Jeff is a sought-after keyboardist, playing, producing, and arranging for artists/ministries such as: Jimmy Fortune (of the Statler Brothers), Doug Oldham, the Original Couriers, Ben “Cooter” Jones of the Dukes of Hazzard, Sammy Hall, Dave Boyer, Canton Junction, and John Hagee Ministries. The choice to perform a more jazz, soulful-influenced repertoire instead of mainstream gospel, a more conservative direction, proved to be their signature strength. The Duffields were performing this worship flavor a decade or more before it became popular.Their music is rich with many layers. They are truly musicians’ musicians, but most will say Jeff and Sue’s hearts are even bigger than their music. In their later years, it’s become quite evident that their real joy is helping other artists and ministries. Their love for Jesus shines in everything they do.



Each meal starts with a staff member’s blessing in the food. When you enter the doors to the dining hall, located in the Raws Building, you will be greeted by the buffet line. Guests are able to grab a plate and choose from the variety of options that are available during the course. Most times there are 1-2 main entrée options with 2-3 sides dishes. During breakfast, there is a cold bar that is fully stocked with assorted cereals, milk, yogurt, and freshly cut fruit. During lunches and dinners, we have a freshly prepared salad bar where guests can create their salad exactly to their choosing. Once guests find their seat at a table,  our friendly servers will bring you beverages and help clear away your plates. You will also see our dining room hostess who is available to you at any time should you need any assistance. If you have a dietary restrictions or allergies, please inform your server and they would be happy to help.
