Strengthening a network of healthy leaders and healthy churches
The Windsor Center For Leadership Development operates in association with and in support of the New York Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God.
Who We Are
Windsor Center for Leadership Development is an extension of the New York Ministry Network. The WCLD Board is comprised of business leaders with a heart for developing healthy leadership based on Biblical principles and empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Board seeks to develop the property with facilities the Network has identified as crucial to the development of Healthy Churches and Healthy Leaders. With God’s direction and help, and with the participation of our New York Ministry Network credential holders and adherents – WCLD will become our premier destination for Leadership Development.
Beginning in 1987, Doug and Rita Saunders began taking steps of faith toward a God-inspired goal – to develop a Christian campground for families in the Assemblies of God, and other Christ-centered organizations. As the Lord provided, they accumulated portions of land resulting in a large 425-acre property near exit 78 of Interstate 86 (Route 17). They built a log-style home and operated Country Haven Bed & Breakfast for many years, while continuing to pray for the larger vision of a full campground.
At the 53rd New York District Council at Binghamton in May 2007 the proposal for a Camp & Conference Center, Hills of Windsor, was presented to the District family. The vote was just short of being unanimous! The Saunders family rejoiced! Twenty years of faithful planning, preparation and prayer had been answered! The property would be used for the Lord’s service and was being transferred to an organization that can maintain and preserve the property for generations to come.
- Our Log Lodge offers an excellent setting for conferences with seating for up to 40 people. Additionally, the lodge offers overnight accommodations. The Log Lodge has 13 beds (5 Queen size, 8 Twin size). There is a full kitchen and a dining area where catered dinners are served to our guests.
- Our Hilltop Lodge has 10 beds (5 Queen size, 4 Twin-Bunks, 1 Double), has a small group sharing space / living room, and a game room. There is also a full country kitchen and dining area – family style setting. Large groups will often use both lodges for sleeping quarters.
Launching in 2018, we are providing a Bed & Breakfast experience – each night’s stay includes a catered breakfast and lunch. There are four bedrooms in each lodge offered for B&B reservations. Each lodge has one premium suite – with full bathroom.
The WCLD Board and NYMN Presbytery have also initiated a sponsored Ministry 2 Ministers program that provides a short respite to ministry couples needing to get-away. This is provided at no cost to the ministry couple, although love offerings are accepted. Sections have set aside funds to help cover the operational costs. Contact your presbyter or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In December 2018, the original purchase debt will be retired. Phase two will begin with the construction of eight full-hookup RV sites and eight dry sites. Not only do these sites provide camping opportunities for our Network, they also are an essential resource for construction teams like MAPS when the campground construction begins in 2019.
We’d love to hear from you!
