Asheville-based Crossfire Ministries celebrating 30 years of ‘life-changing’ ministry

A devout Christian, Asheville’s Randy Shepherd has always relied on his faith in God when making life choices, and in 1990, he prayed about starting a new venture — his own basketball camp.

“I said, ‘Lord, if one boy comes to the camp and learns basketball and also gives his life to the Lord Jesus Christ, it will be a success,'” Shepherd said.

He started up the Randy Shepherd Basketball Camp that summer and set a goal of having 100 boys in the camp. By the camp registration deadline, Shepherd said 175 boys, ages 6-18, had signed up.

“Glory to God, there were 100 boys that made a first-time decision to repent of sin and put their faith in Jesus Christ in the first camp,” he said.
