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.

Farm the Land - Grow the Spirit

Building Peace While Growing Food - Together

Farm the Land Grow the SpiritStony Point Center in Stony Point, NY, a center of the Presbyterian Mission Council, has developed a program for Young Adults from multiple faith backgrounds to come together to farm, and learn and share our faiths.  The transformative affect of such a program enriches personal faith and commitment to the faith tradition we come in with - whether it be Christian, Jewish, Muslim or other.  Programs like this are a wonderful step towards building understanding and peace in the multi-cultural reality of our society and the world we all inhabit.
