Coach training is an excellent complement to the skills you have already developed as a outdoor ministry professional. Join us and gain focused skills and experience in order to coach professionally.

Success for our camp and retreat ministries depends upon the use of sound business practices. Understanding and implementing these non-profit management practices can spell the difference between a thriving vibrant ministry and one that fails to meet its potential. This course will challenge students to adopt effective practices in such areas as communications, risk management, finances, and an administrative plan.

This course will be held at at Pilgrim Center (Ripon, WI) and will be taught by Dan Scheneman of Heartland Presbyterian Center (Parkville, MO) and Lauri SoJourner of Lake Logan Conference Center (Canton, NC). You can learn more about this class by going to www.compasspointsprogram.org.

Do you know where your ministry is going? Can you clearly articulate for others who you are, and why you exist? Identification and implementation of mission, core values, and philosophy are central to all aspects of successful outdoor ministry: program, site management, hospitality, marketing, finances and more. Participants will delve into their organization’s mission and core values. This course involves organizational introspection and will engage with a wide variety of concepts, ideas and activities. Course work will challenge a new, or clearer perspective concerning mission, philosophy, vision and core values in your outdoor ministry. 

This course will be held at at Pilgrim Center (Ripon, WI) and will be taught by Randy Youngquist-Thurow of Agapé + Kure Beach Ministries (Fuquay-Varina, NC) and Cat Holbert of Lazy W Ranch Camp and Retreat Center (San Juan Capistrano, CA). You can learn more about this class by going to www.compasspointsprogram.org.
