Celine Newman Stepping Down

Lutherhaven Friends,

It’s with a heart full of emotions that I share the news that Celine Newman, Camp’s Director of Summer and Youth Ministry for almost 14 years, has made the difficult decision to step down from the Lutherhaven staff team.

My heart is thankful because Celine has been a key member of Camp’s staff, directing fourteen adventurous summers, hundreds of outdoor education school groups, and scores of Spirit-filled, year-round youth retreats. She is a faithful, gifted leader who has invested in Lutherhaven’s mission both personally and professionally. We will miss her profoundly!

My heart is also excited because God is doing a new thing! Both for Celine and for Lutherhaven’s ministry. Celine is not sure what exactly that new adventure looks like yet, and we don’t know who God would have fill this important position at Camp. However, we do know that God is faithful and is always working His good amidst all things. What better hands could our futures be in?!

Celine has graciously offered to be flexible and assist with this transition as needed. Watch our website and Facebook for details on filling the Director of Summer and Youth Ministry position in the months to come. In the meantime, please lift up Celine and Camp Lutherhaven in prayer as we look to our Heavenly Father to direct our paths as we put our trust in Him.

In Christ, our True North,
Tim Jank
Executive Director
