The Task Force for the Compass Points Certification Program met at Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, GA) on October 25-27. This program is a joint partnership of PCCCA, Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries, and the Outdoor Ministries Association of the United Church of Christ. Representatives worked hard this week on plans for the future of the program. This task force includes Allyson Ashmore (PCCCA), Bill Bourdon (OMA-UCC), Gary Lawson (UMCRM), Bob Pryor (PCCCA), John Reiter (PCCCA), Andrea Scofield (LOM - not pictured, met with us by Facetime), and Joel Winchip (PCCCA).
During this meeting, the task force met with Columbia Theological Seminary professor, Martha Moore Keish (pictured here). She is one of the co-instructors for the Biblical and Theological Foundations course that will be taught in February.
A special thank you goes to John Reiter, who rotates off the task force after eight years of service. John, we appreciate all of your hard work since the beginning of this project.
The task force are all excited about the future of this ecumenical program. If you would like to learn more about Compass Points, including the two courses to be taught in February, please go to www.compasspointsprogram.org.
