From the Campaign Chair
A New Phase

Dear Friends in Christ,

At the end of October, I had the honor to speak about the campaign at the North Wisconsin District Church Workers Conference. It was a great opportunity to share what has been happening in the campaign. This was also our first opportunity to communicate with church workers about the kickoff of the Congregational Phase.

The most exciting thing that I got to share with the church workers present was the announcement of two wonderful congregational leadership gifts. I am so thankful for, Redeemer, Marquette who has committed to a gift of $100,000 over the next 5 years and for Peace, Eau Claire which has also commitment a $100,000. It was wonderful to be able to thank them both publicly and celebrate a great start to the Congregational Phase.

Within the Congregational Phase , an exciting opportunity has been created with the creation of Congregational Champions . These important volunteers will be working with their pastors and church leadership to be champions for Camp Luther during the campaign. About 15 participants met with leadership at camp in October to be trained for this role. We continue to seek more help, if you are interested in being a champion for your congregation, please contact Shelly Karolus (Director of Donor Relations), 715-350-9421 or shelly@campluther.com.

It is such a thrilling time for the campaign as we head into this phase. I'm looking forward to seeing the Holy Spirit move in the hearts of congregations throughout the district!



In Christ,
