We are a ministry of the United Methodist Church

Camping Ministries Appreciate their NOMADS!


The national United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries (UMCRM) Association, at their biannual gathering in Fruitland Park, Florida, recognized and showed appreciation for the United Methodist NOMADS organization last week. 

The team members currently working at Life Enrichment Center and Warren Willis Camp were our guests at breakfast on Tuesday  morning where a presentation was made to them as representatives of the many NOMADS members who have given thousands of hours of service to our UM camps and retreat centers. Almost 300 camping ministry leaders attended the conference. 

Later in the morning Dottie and Larry Matthias led a workshop about NOMADS and then were invited to set up their display in  our vendor exhibit hall. 

I heard many stories of NOMADS going above and beyond the expected work. Our Camps are better maintained because of NOMADS;  some of the smaller ones literally could not exist without the volunteer hours given by NOMADS.  
Please share this picture and let everyone know how very, very much our United Methodist Camps and Retreat Centers appreciate them!
