This video was produced in 1989 for a $1.6 million capital campaign for the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia. The campaign doubled the number lodge rooms at Honey Creek and created a fund for missions to use largely for brick and mortar projects. Church buildings were built for Atonement Augusta, Holy Cross Thomson, Trinity Statesboro, St. Elizabeths Richmond Hill, and Grace Sandersville through the use of matching funds grants. Land was also purchased in Effingham County and Columbia County, along with some parish hall and classroom projects.
