George Krebs

Director
George Krebs serves on the staff of the Pennsylvania-Delaware District Council where he directs the Christian Education Department (since 2001) and leads the Bongiorno Conference Center (since 2012). George and his wife Jan have five adult children along with six beautiful grandchildren who refer to him as Poppa G. George spent many years of his life as a layperson, working for a mechanical contractor in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While there, he had the opportunity to minister to hundreds of coworkers and was actively involved in the local church.
After graduation from Central Bible College at age 36, he served as Associate Pastor at First Assembly in Peoria, IL for two years and Christian Education and Children’s Pastor at Christian Life Assembly in Camp Hill for seven years.

George’s passion is to partner with the local church in building people into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through a number of District venues: camps, retreats, mission’s experiences, training conferences, and leadership development settings. George believes some of the greatest life-changing moments occur in a camp and retreat setting. When individuals take a few days and close themselves off from the noise of everyday life, they can hear God whisper to their heart like no other time.

George identifies most with the disciple Peter, due to Peter’s love for Jesus and Peter’s love for fishing.
