About this blog

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.

Immigration - Presbyterian Policy Enacted by the 2010 General Assembly

It is important to share that the General Assembly voted to stand with immigrants and those Presbyterian members who may be harrassed as they attend Presbyterian sponsored events.  Recently, this policy was outlined and distributed throughout the church.  A copy of it can be found at   Download 2010 GA Resolutions[1]

In summary, there are restrictions on where Presbyterian events from a national or regional level can be hosted which requires events NOT be held in States with immigration laws similar to the 2010 Arizona law.  If events are planned at our PC(USA) Centers in those States, the Centers are obligated to assist those that may be affected as they travel to the event.  More details on these requirements can be found in the text of the document.

I highly recommend your reading it so you are not caught unprepared.
