Compass Points :: Articulating Our Mission, Role, and Value
Do you know where your ministry is going? Can you clearly articulate for others who you are, and why you exist? Identification and implementation of mission, core values, and philosophy are central to all aspects of successful outdoor ministry: program, site management, hospitality, marketing, finances and more. Participants will delve into their organization’s mission and core values. This course involves organizational introspection and will engage with a wide variety of concepts, ideas and activities. Course work will challenge a new, or clearer perspective concerning mission, philosophy, vision and core values in your outdoor ministry. This class will be offered at St. Columba Camp and Retreat Center in Memphis, TN. You can learn more (and register) by going to the Compass Points website.
Compass Points :: Nonprofit Business Management
Success for our camp and conference center ministries depends upon the use of sound business practices. Understanding and implementing these nonprofit management practices can spell the difference between a thriving vibrant ministry and one that fails to meet its potential. This course will challenge students to adopt effective practices in such areas as communications, risk management, finances, and an administrative plan. This class will be offered at St. Columba Camp and Retreat Center in Memphis, TN. You can learn more (and register) by going to the Compass Points website.
