He also has a passion to train men and women for the ministry and has since opened opportunities for youth to work on their college degree at camp. (Bridge-To-Campus) He and his wife Jennifer were married in 2000 and have one son, Nathan.

Carey Charles
Camp Director

Carey grew up as a Pastor’s kid and knew the gospel very well, but it wasn’t until he was twelve that he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior. He than began to help his father as much as possible at his home church. When Carey turned fifteen, God called him to preach and he started to preach in his home church as well as other local churches. Carey joined our team in the fall of 2019 working on our Marketing and Promotions group. He is excited for what God is doing the hearts and lives of all the people involved with The Edge Christian Camp. “I am here to glorify God and to see souls saved and draw closer to Jesus Christ.”

Caleb Biggs
Program Director

Caleb is the son of our Pastor back home, Pastor Ken Biggs. Caleb has worked in different areas of the church ministry, and we are glad to have him as part of the team here at The Edge.

Lydia Biggs
Guest Services

Lydia was raised in a church her grandfather (Warren Skinner) pastored. Her grandfather lead her to Christ when she was 8. Since then, she has had a strong desire to serve. Through the years, she has had the opportunity to serve in AWANA, Master’s Club, Jr. Church and Summer Camp Ministry. She is excited to see how God uses The Edge Christian Camp to accomplish His work."

Allan Toothman
Kitchen Director / Chef

Allan Toothman is a retired Navy Veteran and has been a faithful member of his home church. Allan has had the opportunity to work in many ministries over the years and has been at the property where The Edge calls home for 21 years as a staff member. Allan enjoys the kitchen and looks forward to meeting all the guest when they come in for meals.

Kyle Byrd
Program Assistant

Kyle thought he was saved at the age of 4 but, for many years he doubted his salvation. It wasn't until the summer of 2011 that he went with his youth group to a Christian Camp. It was there that the Lord showed him his need for salvation. He surrendered to full-time ministry in the summer of 2013 and felt God calling him into camp ministry in a college chapel service the fall of 2017. Eventually God led him here to the Edge Christian Camp the fall of 2021.

Nathan Carsley

When Nathan was seven, he heard a message he had never heard before or hadn’t ever paid attention to which was the gospel of Christ. He didn’t go down to the alter that Wednesday night but what he did was talk with his parents when he had gotten home. That’s where they showed him how to receive Jesus and how to live for him. Fast forward to 2018, he heard a message at camp about surrendering to what God would want you to do. And So he surrendered everything he had and his life for God's glory.

Andrew Gross
Maintenance Director

Born and raised near Baltimore, Maryland. Saved at a fall youth retreat in 1997. Then accepted God’s calling on my life to attend Liberty University 2000 to study Theology. Enlisted in The US Army 2008- 2012, served as a Military Police Officer, served one tour to Iraqi Freedom. Though the years of serving God, He has given me the knowledge to fix, repair and build. God has truly put people in my life to teach me and show me maintenance skills whether it be electrical, plumbing, carpentry, painting or simple remodeling skills. God has always had a call on my life for ministry. God has allowed me to serve as the media team at a local church also preaching and teaching Gods word. Through life I have dwelled on God’s holy word. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 is a passage I dwell on for daily living. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Married in 2003 to Jaya,
Blessed with 5 kids, Jonah, Micah, Samarah, Nehemiah & Ameliah
So grateful to call The Edge Christian Camp family.

Chris Rosenbalm
Kitchen Chef

I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was at the age of five.  I came to the realization that I needed a Savior, and no one could make that decision for me. I needed to accept Christ of my own volition and make Him my own, and myself His. After years of growing up and serving in the church, I would eventually move to Tennessee to study pastoral ministries at The Crown College of the Bible. It was there that I became burdened with reaching children and sharing the gospel with them, and so upon graduating college, I became a part of the team at the Edge Christian Camp under the direction of the Holy Spirit. I am very thankful for the working hand of the Lord, and the opportunity to be involved in His ministry.
