Potomac welcomes Ray and Jannette Queen to Camp Blue Ridge (Montebello, Va.) as new camp directors. The Queens have been serving in camp ministry for 19 years with the Florida Conference—including four years at Pine Lake Retreat Center and 15 at Camp Kulaqua.
“We are passionate about connecting children and families with God and His nature,” says R. Queen. “We are both service leadership-minded and love anything that takes us closer to nature and God. Our intention is to use summer camp, the best youth evangelistic tool that our church has, to build upon this cornerstone that was set many years ago to grow our church. We are excited to see what God has in store!”
The Queens say their vision for Camp Blue Ridge is to create an atmosphere that allows the Holy Spirit to reach every person who enters its gates and some of their three-year goals are to make Camp Blue Ridge structurally sound and expound upon the natural beauty that the mountains offer.
“We are pleased to have the Ray and Jannette join our team,” says Bill Miller, president. “As we spoke and prayed together, it’s obvious they have a real commitment to camp ministries and our youth and a desire to create an environment to connect with Jesus. Our administration is grateful for the addition of these members to the Potomac Team.”
