On March 2-5, the Coordinating Council for the Compass Points Certificate Program met at Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, GA). This meeting brings together representatives from the four outdoor ministry associations (PCCCA, UMCRM, LOM, and OMA-UCC) that share this program. Don Johnson, the Executive Director of Lutheran Outdoor Ministies, was there to represent his denomination for the very first time. The group's work included the evaluation of previous classes, marketing, the upcoming schedule of classes, and the capstone process for the fall (when we will welcome our first non-Presbyterian graduates!). We are excited about the future of this program and we hope you will help spread the word about our upcoming classes in October. Please go to www.compasspointsprogram.org for details.
