Originally from Athens, Beth and her husband Jerry, who are both University of Georgia graduates, have been residents of Effingham County for 41 years.
Since the center already had wonderful facilities in place, along with comfortable cottages for guests, they simply needed someone with Epling's experience to spearhead the new program. "They knew a little about my background as head of the 4-H program along with other things I've been involved in," she says. Epling explains, "Students learn best by doing, by getting their hands dirty. The program's success is a testament to the passion and effectiveness of Epling and her staff. For the past fifteen years, the Ebenezer Alive! "Most of the groups opt for a 3 day/2 nights stay, we've had some stay for a week or longer, and most of the groups love it so much that they return the next school year," Epling says with pride. "We serve students from around 30 schools ranging from 4th to 8th grades and even older, and everything is customized to their needs. The teachers are provided with a check sheet, and we construct each program based on what they've chosen. Epling says that while her staff and program facilitators are responsible for teaching and guiding the students through tours and instruction, they always encourage supervision and participation from teachers and parents. "We want everyone who comes to become involved in the program," Epling says. "Plus, it's always inspiring to witness the students getting to see their teacher outside of the classroom as a real person, and it really helps to break down barriers. The administrators and teachers in Effingham county have been incredibly supportive, and we've been blessed to have their students come every year since the program began." Epling says there are countless examples of how the Ebenezer ALIVE! Program makes an impact on its visitors, but she recalls one from about four years ago.
