Ministers and youth leaders from across Mid-Missouri gathered in Bethany Hall at First Christian Church in Columbia on April 24 (after a delicious meal together) to discuss our shared ministries with youth, and favorite resources. Much discussion revolved around the excitement of the upcoming Mid-America camping season with shared insights about various camps. Zane Whorton, Regional Camps Co-Coordinator and Paul Koch, RMT were also present. Any pastor or youth leader is welcome to be included for future gatherings, please contact Rev. Jimmy Spear at FCC-Columbia.
Dr. Paul Koch, RMT, participates in an active monthly youth leaders/ministers gathering that meets in the St. Louis area and surrounding eastern Missouri locales. It is coordinated by leaders in the Missouri MId-South UCC, and Disciples are certainly welcome. Contact Paul for more information.
