What does it mean to be the church in a place where people come to vacation? Some small towns and less about Friday Night Lights and more about AirBnB. But what if it was possible not only to reach weekend warriors looking for recreation and the local population who live in small towns all year long. In this episode listen to discover different ways local churches seeking to revitalize their presence and they do it through play and outdoor adventure.

Pamela Morse and her husband, Earle, have served as pastors of Sugarloaf Christian Ministry in Carrabassett Valley, Maine, since 1990. In that rural, but also resort setting, they raised two amazing boys who are now fully launched! Ordained through the ABC/USA she also serves as chair of the American Baptist Churches of Maine Committee on Ministry, overseeing and implementing standards of recognition for ministerial leadership in the region. The Ministry is also a partner with Skiers and Snowboarders for Christ, an organization devoted to reaching the ski and snowboard culture. A graduate of Bates College and Andover Newton Theological School, Pam also completed her Doctorate of Ministry at Portland Seminary under the mentorship of Leonard Sweet, focusing on Semiotics and Future Studies.
