UCCR and UCC OMA Connection

Just had a great call with a couple of Board Members from the United Church of Christ Outdoor Ministries Association (OMA). It is a compelling thing in these days of the decline of the mainline church in America, and the subsequent loss of financial resources, to forge new partnerships between organizations who are passionate about camp, outdoor ministries, and the residential camp experience. In a time such as this, when denominational conferences and regions are or are considering selling their camp and retreat facilities, we are required to pull together our collective wisdom to support, resource, and sometimes save our sacred properties.

I look forward to furthering these conversations between UCCR and OMA…and discovering more friends, yet unmet, who serve this wonderful niche in life.
