Jon Frank, founder and director of Camp Shiloh, was born into a dysfunctional family with two alcoholic parents. By the age of 18 he had become an alcoholic, had joined a motorcycle gang and had a black belt in karate with a reputation for hurting people.
In the summer of 1972, Jon has planned to run his motorcycle into an 18-wheeler truck and end his life through suicide. While Jon was on the on the side of the road preparing to end his life, a local carpenter pulled over and began sharing about Jesus. Jon spent a lot of time with Bob and his family that summer. They continued to share and show him the love of Jesus. At the end of the summer they invited him to church where he made a decision to become a Christian.
After that summer, Bob helped Jon get into rehab, go to college and get a job. Jon asked Bob how he could pay him back for all that he had done for him. Bob said ‘do for others what we did for you’. Jon began by volunteering at a local church youth group and helping teens with challenging situations. In 1986, Jon and his wife Sandy left their jobs, sold their home, and started Shiloh Bible Camp.
