Representatives from PCCCA, United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries (UMCRM), the United Church of Canada, Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (LOM), Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers (ECCC), and the Outdoor Ministry Association of the United Church of Christ (OMA-UCC) gathered together on March 25-28 for a meeting of the Council of the Outdoor Ministries Connection at the Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center (Carefree, AZ). The group heard the latest reports on the Interim Director Training in May and the Great Gathering at Lake Junaluska in November. It is always great when the OMC Council comes together for a meeting. It shows us how much can be accomplished when we work together with our ecumenical partners. If the 2019 OMC Great Gathering is not yet on your calendar, it will be held at on November 10-14 at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center in North Carolina.
