Building Bigger Ministry at St. Columba

Dear St. Columba Friend,

Since 2012, St. Columba has been in a long-term planning process with its Board and staff. In the six years since this important work began, St. Columba embarked on an exciting expansion plan to allow more children and adults to experience the programs, facilities and special grounds that make up St. Columba. Currently serving 7000 guests and campers each year, the plans will push us to serve many thousands more...while enhancing what we already have and equipping us for the decades to come. 

The work summarized on this website is thanks to a countless number of people dedicating many hours of hard work to dreaming and discerning. We are a strong camp and retreat ministry already, but we're aiming higher both because of you and for you.

The Mid-South region needs places like St. Columba to offer experiences that shape perspectives, grow relationships, and refresh the mind, body, soul and spirit. St. Columba is being called forward in ministry, to set goals to create a bigger impact on our community, and to be a sanctuary to more and more campers and guests. Our Master Plan, Phase 1 Expansion Plan and Needs are clear and ready for your review. I'm excited by what we do and where we're going. I know you will too.

I want to ask that each of you viewing this supports our expansion plans and helps us to double-down during this immensely important process that won't be successful without you.
