Brian Frick is the Associate for Camp and Conferences Ministries with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). He has been involved in camp and conference ministry since high school. For the past ten years, Brian has served as program director of Johnsonburg Center in New Jersey, Westminster Woods in California, and Heartland Center in Missouri.
Camp and conference ministry compliments and partners with other ministry aspects of our church to foster faith development and reflection. As our communities and our church changes, our ministries need to grow and adapt with creative and emergent programming and leadership to meet new realities.
These blogs entries, though varied, are intended to spur thought and conversation around the opportunities and challenges before us.
There is just one week left before the application deadline for the June 2013 Eco-Stewards Program in Portland, Oregon: Connectional Urban Living as Creative Response. We want to make a final push to recruit young adults (ages 20-30) for this wonderful opportunity to explore their faith and passion for environmental stewardship and meet others who are doing the same in and around Portland. Please spread the word to professors, chaplains, mentors, pastors and others who can help us recruit a new team of Eco-Stewards. And if you know someone who would be a great fit for the program, please reach out to him or her this week with a personal invitation. Thanks for your help. Thinking of you all during Holy Week.
