Jessica Gamaché currently serves the Church through her position as Coordinator of Camping and Retreat Ministries for our United Methodist Annual Conference. She felt a call into the Camping Ministry as an older teenager and has lived out that call through her schooling and growing career. Jessica earned a M.S. in Parks and Resource Management from Slippery Rock University. Upon graduating, she has served the Lord at various church camps including Wesley Forest in Weikert, PA and Lutherlyn in Butler, PA. Jessica’s focused mission is to advocate for the vital ministry of camp and retreats, which will carry the Church into the future. She understands the importance of giving all people a chance to step away from the struggles of everyday life and be immersed in an intentional Christian community with faith-strong mentors, while being surrounded by the beauty of God’s Creation.
