With the upcoming retirement of our Executive Director, Rev. Peter Surgenor, Holmes Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center is looking for new leadership in our shared ministry.

The Search Committee – which consists of Rev. Dr. Mark Hostetter, David Burpee, Emily Ford Sytsma, Rev. Pete Jones and Philip J. Kochman – has been working to find the right person to lead Holmes into the future. The Search Committee is being assisted by Gary Batty of

Run River Enterprises and by Rev. Dr. Robert Foltz-Morrison, the Executive Presbyter of New York City Presbytery.

The process began over a year ago when the Personnel Committee of the Board of Directors began discussions about succession planning. The Board of Directors, members of the Search Committee and Peter Surgenor met this past February for a weekend retreat at Agape to start planning for the Executive Director search. The group worked in collaboration to determine the leadership and organizational needs of Holmes going forward. This process was facilitated by Macky Alston, Senior Vice President for Strategy and Growth at Auburn Seminary.

Based on the work at the retreat, the Search Committee developed a position description to guide the process. This description has been circulated throughout national and local camping organizations and other nonprofit resources. To date, the Search Committee has been excited and encouraged by the numerous applications submitted for the position. After carefully considering the applications, the Search Committee has begun interviews with several top candidates and more interviews are scheduled.

The process will continue until the Search Committee has discerned the right match for the Executive Director position. The Search Committee will then make a recommendation to the Board of Directors, who will ultimately approve the new Executive Director. The Search Committee and Board of Directors hope a new Executive Director will be in place later this year.

It is not too late to apply, it is not too late to encourage others to apply, and it is not too late to send the Search Committee names or other suggestions.
