Incredible OMC Initiatives are Taking Shape

Group Picture of the 2017 OMC MeetingOn March 6-9, the Outdoor Ministries Connection (OMC) steering committee met at Ross Point Camp and Conference Center, our PCCCA member site in Post Falls, ID. This gathering brought together outdoor ministry leaders who represented Episcopalians (ECCC), Presbyterians (PCCCA), United Methodists (UMCRM), Lutherans (LOM), United Church of Christ (OMA-UCC), United Church of Canada, and the American Baptists. PCCCA's representatives were Theresa McDonald-Lee (Board President), Kevin Cartee (Board President Elect), and Joel Winchip (Executive Director). This meeting focused on OMC projects like the upcoming Interim Executive Director Training Event, the research initiative, our relationship with the American Camp Association, and the Great Gathering (the OMC conference that will bring all of the denominations together at the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center in North Carolina on November 10-14, 2019). It is wonderful to have PCCCA as a part of the OMC steering committee. This group represents the incredible work that can be accomplished when denominational outdoor ministry associations work together to support our mutual ministries.
