The United Methodist Church’s Discipleship Ministries (formerly the GBOD) has its goal to make world-changing disciples. The agency currently employs a part-time staff person to relate to Camp and Retreat Ministries: Kelly Peterson-Cruse. Kelly serves as an ex-officio member of the UMCRM (and past Chair) and her focus and goals overlap significantly with ours. Kelly provides support through resourcing, connection, and communication. She will be working with the UMCRM Association to equip the Resource Library for those looking for resources, samples, and answers to questions around Camping and Retreat Ministries. The other part of Kelly’s portfolio is that of the Western Jurisdictional Young People’s Ministry Regional Staff Person. In that role she blogs regularly for the Division on Young People’s Ministries.
