Our Missionaries

Galilee Bible Camp is an InFaith ministry and is led by our missionaries. These missionaries have a heart for the Lord and for discipleship of young people to know Him too. They are a team united in faith and mission and we are thankful for their service. 

Missionaries through InFaith must raise their own financial support and are not funded by the camp. If you would like to partner with these missionaries by supporting them, please give below.


Mark & Mellissa Lay

Mark and Mellissa Lay have grown up in the LaFolette, TN area and have a unique history of their families being involved with the building of our camp many years ago. Camp Galilee has held a special connection between them and they began to volunteer at Camp Galilee back in 2012. They have a committed heart for the kingdom of God and desired to be used by Him to advance His kingdom here on earth. In 2013, Mark and Mellissa became InFaith missionaries at Camp Galilee and served as facilities managers. However, in 2017, they stepped into their current role of camp directors and have contributed greatly to our camp ministry. Mellissa has always had a heart for horses and was brought up as a child working with horses. She dreamed of bringing her love for horses to camp. In the summer of 2021, her dream became a reality as she began our horse ministry at camp.

Jeremiah & Felica Carswell

Jeremiah and Felica Carswell and their four children began to volunteer at camp in the fall of 2020. The Carswell Family has lived in the Knoxville, TN area since 2018 but are new to LaFollette. Through their footsteps being directed by the Lord, they were brought to camp, and we felt an immediate unity in both faith and mission. They came on-board as fulltime missionaries in January of 2021. They have an array of strengths and ministry experience that are an asset to fulfilling the vision here at Galilee Bible Camp. Jeremiah manages the facilities and Felica helps to direct our programs. They are instrumental in leading our monthly teen discipleship program and continuing the outreach into our local community as we strive to know God and make Him known to our local area.
