Lutherhaven Celebrates Celine “Zia” Newman

We want to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU to Celine “Zia” Newman for her past 14 years of ministry at Lutherhaven. She has been a key member of the Lutherhaven team, 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 (& Takoda) and are excited for where God is leading her to serve next!

For the next couple of months, Celine plans to remain in the area. From there, if you find yourself in northwest New Mexico, on the beaches of southern California, hiking the mountains out west, living up life in Ft. Wayne, walking down Main Street USA, or on a mission trip in Nepal or South America, you may just find her there! If you have a ministry opportunity in one of those places, she would probably love to talk with you about it.

To celebrate Celine’s ministry at Lutherhaven, we have a couple things planned and invite you to join us!

  1. We are having a Card Shower! Send a card or note to Celine Newman at 1596 S 150 W, Albion, IN 46701 to let her know how much you have appreciated her service at Lutherhaven these past many years.
  2. A Celebration Video is being created for Celine featuring all the years she has worked at Camp! If you have a great photo or video of Celine at Lutherhaven to add or you would like to be a part of the video, please email for more information by April 1st.

We are grateful for Celine’s ministry and pray God’s blessings over her as she seeks what the Lord has for her next! God be with you, Celine!
