Here’s what people have had to say about their experience with FCS+. If you’d like to submit a testimonial of your own, please contact us.

March 2, 2011 Regarding the 4th Annual Wild Game Feed and Expo held Feb 19. Jack- Mitch, Barb and all: What a blessing yesterday was, I feel such a joy to have been involved. I am always blessed to get to hang out with you all.

It was so special how God opened the opportunity for me to bring a friend along (who is unchurched) to hear the message of salvation. … I was filled with emotion that he was hearing the word, I know he was listening and it had to make him think. He didn’t fill out a card, I’m sure there were probably many there like him, who had a seed planted– I pray that it grows and grows.
Thank you so much for all your work and efforts and most of all for your prayers.

Jan 3, 2011 – In November, my son and I had the opportunity to be a part of your pheasant hunt near Parkston. We had a wonderful time filled with great conversation, fellowship, food and topped off with a successful hunt. Having recently moved to the area, I look forward to participating in many other events in the future. FCS is a special organization which gives Christian outdoors people an opportunity to be together doing things outdoors that we love as well as the opportunity to reach out to some who may not know Christ. Thanks for your work and ministry! Sincerely, Todd, Sioux Falls, SD

Oct 2010 Dear Jack, On behalf of myself and my sons, ____ and _____ thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in the youth pheasant hunt. This was the fulfillment of the second of my two major goals for 2010. I committed to taking the boys to shoot trap as many Thursday evenings as possible throughout the summer so they would have a chance to shoot their first pheasants this year. At the hunt, _______ shot three pheasants and_____ shot two. It was a time they will never forget and will help give them a love for the outdoors. It was so much more meaningful to experience this with fellow believers in a way that gave glory to God. We would love to participate in future outdoor events. Gratefully, Greg, SD.

Dear FCS Plus,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the ministry you are providing. The opportunity for my son to hunt at a lodge of this caliber was wonderful, but the fellowship was incredible.

It is great to be able to spend quality time with Men of Christ. So many times we get so wrapped up in our daily activities that we forget our purpose. You help in reminding each of us as to what our mission should be. THANK YOU.

May God Bless you and your work,


Dear FCS Plus,

We had a great time this last weekend at Keystone-Camp Judson. This is our first outing and what a great group of Christian Sportsmen and Ladies. It was more then we expected. Everyone was friendly and so helpful and patient in teaching us how to fly fish. The meals were fantastic and we enjoyed all the speakers. The facility was topnotch and clean. We had such a good time that we plan to bring family and friends when we come next time. There is nothing that we did not like and I can’t think of anything we would like changed. Like I said before, this was our first encounter and we did not know what to expect, but it was first rate.

Thanks Again Mitch & Barb!

This was the first hunt for my son and memories were made. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he will look back at this hunt, in years to come, and remember walking the fields with his dad. The transition from boyhood to manhood ceremony touched me the most and I couldn’t wait to tell all my friends and coworkers about the experience. I too will never forget the first hunt with my son.

You helped make a huge memory for Samuel & I. You are making an eternal difference.

No Name
You have created a “monster”. My son loved the fishing outing and that is all he has talked about since Saturday. Thank you very much. We both need that, he more than I did. He loved it so much that he convinced me to go out and get my fishing license to make this a periodic occurrence between him and me.

Thank you FCS Plus for the wonderful experience my son and I were able to have. God worked in my life in so many ways and my relationship with my son has become so much closer as a result of it. The ministry opportunities were amazing and I’m glad my son was able to be a part of it.

FCS Plus is a super ministry to share Christ. My son and I had a super time. The fellowship, testimony, devotions, hunting and hospitality were incredible.

Jay & Natalie
Natalie and I are so excited to hear all the positive impact that FCS Plus is having on all you come in contact with. Praise God. To Him be the Glory.

Thank you for all that you do in the work of the Lord. It is because of people like you that Christ stays in my heart.

1) I loved the experience all together. I had never fly fished before or even fished for that matter. I think it was a fantastic time and really enjoyed meeting new people.
2) I don’t think there was anything I didn’t like about the trip.
3) What I would change is letting people know what time to get up and be ready for breakfast. Other than that nothing else.
4) I thought the speakers did an amazing job. It was awesome to hear their experiences with God.
5) I thought the facility was great overall except for the showers. Water had a hard time coming out.
6) For the most part, you guys did an excellent job with instructions.

Thank you

Celene and Darrek

Mitch, Marc, and all at Dakota Hot Spots,

What a wonderful time at Dakota Hot Spots. So many thoughts and thank you.

Nice that there were so many father and son’s in attendance. My father first took me when I was only 10 or 11 and those days of pheasant hunting are some of the best memories I have. I hope my son can go next year, he thoroughly enjoyed the weekend also.

The food, lodging, unbelievable bird population, fun loving guides, fellowship and church service was all anyone could have asked for.

I apologize for leaving so early on Sunday. I will make sure next year I stay around long enough to help “clean up”. I can see and appreciate how much effort it takes from ALL to make the weekend so enjoyable.

Steve and Curt
