Dave and Debbie Frank

David was born in PA, lived in Germany and IL in a pastor/missionary home. After returning from Vietnam, was involved in the Navigator and University ministry in CA, graduated from Bible College, CIU (SC) and served in numerous camp and conference center over the years. Debbie was born and raised in Peru, SA in a missionary home, attended high school in NC and graduated in nursing from USC (SC) after two years at CIU (SC).

We were married in January 1976, and served full time at Spring Hill Camps in MI. God later touched our hearts about the huge spiritual need  in Spain and we arrived there with GEM in July 1978, with our 4 mo. old son, Jeremy. Our daughters, Tafie and Tami, were born in Spain. We served in evangelism/church planting in NE Spain for a number of years and later founded and directed the L’Arcada Camp and Retreat ministry, where the first camps started in 1991.

Our responsibilities include coordinating International Volunteers, directing Family camp and serving the other camps during the summer, trips to the USA to share ministry needs, recruit volunteers, raise prayer and financial support, and creation and preparation of program materials and decorations. David is also involved with Christian Camping International (CCI/Spain and CCI Worldwide). We try to be an encouragement to those at camp, in the local church, family, friends, neighbors, contacts; challenging believers in their daily walk with Christ and sharing the Gospel with those who don’t have a personal relationship with Him.
