If someone did an impression of you, what words or phrases would they say the most? It’s an interesting thought exercise, and one of my favorite interview questions for potential summer staff.
One of mine is “If you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse.” I can’t remember where or from whom I first heard that quote, but I use it all the time. I believe it’s completely true, especially in camp and retreat ministry. Maybe it’s the perfectionist in me, but I feel like there is always an improvement that can be made.
I bet if you’ve spent time at NaCoMe this year, you’ve probably heard me say it. NaCoMe is fortunate to have a strong community of support which allows me to be able to use this phrase. The fact that so many people love this place and feel committed to supporting its mission financially and with their gifts of service is truly humbling. An incredible transformation has happened in the past couple of years, and the momentum from that is continuing forward.
In the next couple of months, we’re going to be unveiling some new ways to support our ministry. Whether you’ve been a part of what’s already happened or not, I want you to consider joining in NaCoMe’s future. As a ministry, we work to be good stewards of the fees we take in, and those fees can keep the lights on and the bills paid. But expansion, addition, or program renovation is funded by donors. I want you to be a part of NaCoMe getting better every year.
