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.
Saw this posted by a friend on facebook. Some interesting observations about our current "historical" model of worship and how it engages or does not engage people. It always helps to share observations, but what do we do with this? How can we be a force for renewal and welcome in our churches? In our camps and conference centers? In our communities? God is moving! God is with us! Knowing we are not alone, we can bravely face what we see, and adapt or mode of operating to continue to be relevant - Jesus is always relevant, maybe it is us standing in the way sometimes? Anyway, I digress. Follow the link and let me know what YOU think! http://holysoup.com/2012/03/07/why-church-doesnt-fit-most-people/
