By: Vanderbloemen September 3, 2020
In today’s episode, Holly Tate, Vice President of Business Development & Marketing at Vanderbloemen, talks with Rich Birch, author, camp director, multisite church pioneer, and the founder of Unseminary. Rich talks specifically about his experience as the Executive Director of Camp Miniyowe, a Christian Summer Camp, during the inconsistencies and uncertainty of COVID-19.
Camp Miniyowe’s mission is to develop tomorrow's leaders through life-changing adventure in God’s creation. This mission has fueled the different ways leaders at Camp Miniyowe have stayed connected with their team and campers this summer when social distancing mandates prevented typical operations. Rich explains tangible tactics summer camps can use to serve their campers and families best. Rich also points out the new forms of church coaching and consulting he has seen come to life through the impacts of COVID-19, particularly with multisite churches. This conversation reminds us that God is still at work during uncertain times, and we can embrace the opportunity of learning how to be agile in order to serve him and his people best.
