Craigsville Campground Beef Fund

Did you know it costs over $500 per day to provide meal service at camp? The Craigsville Campmeeting Beef Fund is more than just beef. The Beef Fund helps reduce the annual food service costs. The food service budget not only includes the cost of food for the cafeteria, but for the snack bar, as well as paper goods and garbage bags for camp meeting, Camp Agape, the ministers retreat and two work weekends.


The Beef Fund began in the early 70’s with a local farmer annually donating a side of beef to be served in the cafeteria during camp meeting week.  In later years, Billy & Jackie Mooney had a passion for the Fund and devoted many years of service to promoting and developing it.  Most recently, the Fund experienced a tremendous vacancy when the Mooneys resigned due to Billy’s illness and subsequently passing. 


During the 2017 camp business meeting, while listening to Pastor Rick Walker speak about a need for a volunteer to fill the vacancy, God spoke to my heart and I felt led to step up to the plate. Billy & Jackie certainly set a high precedent with their dedication and commitment to the Beef Fund.  With my wife’s help, we can only aspire to fill their shoes.  Our vision is to raise enough funds so everyone can eat for free while at camp.  We know this vision may be farfetched. However every donated dollar reduces meal costs for everybody.  We want everyone who attends to enjoy good food and great fellowship, while not having to worry about the price of meals.


We certainly appreciate and thank those individuals and church congregations who have supported the Beef Fund in the past.   We humbly ask you to please consider giving to the 2018 Beef Fund so the Craigsville Campmeeting Association can continue to offer great meals for as little as possible. Think of it as paying forward. Cast your bread upon the water! Your generous gifts to the Beef Fund are tax deductible. For your convenience you can give online with a debit card, credit card, or by using PayPal at The option to set up a recurring monthly payment is also available.
