On April 15-18, the Coordinating Council for the Compass Points Certificate Program met at Columbia Theological Seminary (Decatur, GA). This meeting brings together representatives from the four outdoor ministry associations (PCCCA, UMCRM, LOM, and OMA-UCC) that share this program. This gathering featured a very productive meeting with the President and the Acting Dean of Faculty of Columbia Theological Seminary where the partnership between Compass Points and the seminary was reaffirmed. The Council's work this week included the evaluation of previous classes, the upcoming schedule of classes, the budget for 2018 and 2019, and the capstone process for the fall (we could have as many as 12 people graduate in the next nine months!). The Council is excited about the future of this program and we hope you will help spread the word about our upcoming classes in October. Please go to www.compasspointsprogram.org for details.
