In November 2019, an ecumenical group of mainline denominational camp and retreat associations will hold the Outdoor Ministries Connection Great Gathering at Lake Junaluska, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Under the theme of RelationSHIFT, we will build relationships, discover each other’s gifts, and equip vital ministries to meet the emerging needs of God’s people.
RelationSHIFT is expanding our understanding of relationship as God’s people.
So, we gather together…
- recognizing the Holy Spirit will be present in our gathering,
- affirming the various gifts we bring,
- finding common ground,
- navigating a changing landscape,
- figuring out how we journey together
Why Is It Important?
This event will bring together innovative outdoor ministry partners of mainline denominations (600-800 people) to build relationships, discover each other’s gifts, and equip vital ministries to meet the emerging needs of God’s people.
