After 16 years serving camping in the Oregon-Idaho Conference, preceded by 21 years of parish and camping ministry in the Northeast, Rev. Lisa Jean Hoefner, Executive Director of Camp and Retreat Ministries, has announced her retirement to the Board of Camp and Retreat Ministries.
Hoefner will continue to serve through April of 2015. This will give the board time to conduct a national level search for a replacement, and allow for transition before the busy summer camping season.
