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.

Join or Renew Your PCCCA Membership

For most of our camps and conference centers, their PCCCA membership expired on January 1. Now would be a great time to join or renew your PCCCA membership. You have the option of joining for one year or saving some money by paying for two years. Please keep in mind that PCCCA membership now lasts one (or two) years beyond your renewal date and does not follow the calendar year. If you are a smaller camp, keep in mind that there is a new discounted rate for membership. You can join using a check or credit card by going to www.pccca.net/membership.

Presbyterian Panel Survey on Camp and Conference Ministry

The Presbyterian Panel of the Presbyterian Church (USA) has released survey results related to Spiritual Growth Experiences and Church Retreats. A representative sample of nearly 4,000 Presbyterians (members, ruling elders, pastors, and specialized clergy) serve on the Presbyterian Panel for a three-year period and respond to mailed questionnaires four times a year. You can find the summary of this survey on the impact of camp, conference and retreat ministry at the Presbyterian Panel website.
