Dean & Lorie Loftus
As a couple, Dean and Lorie have served together at Red Cliff Bible Camp for nearly 30 years. What a privilege it has been to be stewards at Red Cliff - to serve churches, families, and individuals through gospel presentation and edification. God providentially caused Dean and Lorie to intersect at Red Cliff while serving on summer staff.
Thankfully, God's plan was to draw them together and give them the desire of their hearts in camp ministry. God also blessed Dean and Lorie in giving them three sons and a daughter to rear for His glory and has given them the privilege of serving with each of their children at various times at Red Cliff.
Dick & Deirdre MacGill
Dick and Deirdre MacGill moved to Pinedale immediately after Dick graduated from Frontier School of the Bible in July of 1975. Dick and Phil Tubbs had searched together for a camp property the year before. Dick began working under the leadership of Phil from that time until Phil’s home-going in 1986. At the request of the Camp Board, Dick became director of the camp for the next four years. In 1992, Dean Loftus stepped into the position of Camp Director. Dick was then able to return to doing what he most enjoyed—building and vehicle maintenance, construction, and cooking in dutch ovens for the Red Cliff Chuck Wagon.
Deirdre has also been a valuable asset. With her willing spirit, she has been able to do bookkeeping for the camp since 1986, run camper registration for a number of years, and even work at the Higher Grounds coffee shop!
David & Wixi Heyboer
After graduating from Bob Jones University, David traveled nationally and internationally as a missionary builder for thirteen years, until 2013. He served in many fundamental ministries and churches. In the last five years, most of his service has been at three different camps, learning different tools for camp ministry.
David and Wixi met while serving in Antigua, West Indies. God brought them from two different countries to meet on that island. They were married in June, 2006. God repeatedly brought them back to serve seasonally at Red Cliff Bible Camp, and in 2013, God led them to join the full-time staff. They are excited to serve along with the rest of the team.
Dave and Wixi have three children, Anah Grace, Leonard Allen, and Joseph.
The Heyboers’ Bible verse is Psalm 27:14 – “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
