The schedule will include time for sharing, discussion, hands-on activities, workshops, and plenty of fellowship time! Discussion topics are decided by participants at the start of the event, so sessions are aimed at what you need to learn or what you want to share. Come prepared to learn, to share, and to have fun!

The Outdoor Ministries Connection is offering the Great Gathering which will bring together all of the denominations for a huge joint conference. The event will be held at Lake Junaluska, the Methodist conference and retreat center in Lake Junaluska, NC. The theme of the conference is RelationSHIFT. As our society and churches shift around us, Outdoor Ministries must find new ways to collaborate in our nurture of fellow disciples on their journeys. We are excited to have PCCCA as a part of the largest ecumenical gathering of outdoor ministry leaders in history. While there will be much to learn from the other denominations, there will still be time for the PCCCA family to gather within this event. Elise Bates Russell of Johnsonburg and Clayton Rascoe of Massanetta Springs are the PCCCA representatives to the joint planning team. Some details about the event can be found here.
