Ministry in Resort Communities
Dave Penniman, Convener of the Network for Ministry in Resort Communities, and Licensed Pastoral Leader for Church of the Nativity in Boyne City, Michigan, will lead our time together.
Mary Staley from Put-in-Bay Ohio
Betty Creamer from Desert Hot Springs, California.
Life and ministry in resort communities offer unique – make that quirky – moments for creative engagement with the people who live there, the people who live there part of the year, and those who just drop in for a weekend. We bless boats and bikes, we strive to keep in touch and maintain pastoral relationships, we minister in the midst of socio-economic tensions among the differing populations.
We will share some ministry ventures that have worked in particular contexts, and find support in meeting our challenges.
