In this episode host, Joe Brannen, interviews Pastor Mike Urmie, along with Pastoral Residents Lucas & Ceeja Malmkar from our congregation in Surrey Hills, Oklahoma. They continue to discuss how their leadership team transitioned from a traditional camp to a community day camp
“To use the term reimagine what could be, we have to evaluate some things in terms of what could be. The regional camps are wonderful events, I’ve enjoyed them for years and many families have. But we have to take a look at what it produces and whether it go deep enough and is it sustainable. Does it tie back to the local church and in ministry to children, families, neighbors community? Or is it a stand-alone event?” – Mike Urmie
