Letter From Executive Director

December 22, 2021

Greetings Corporate Assembly Members: 

It’s that time of year once again…we lead and go to all the annual meetings. Hip, hip Hooray! Park River Bible Camp has scheduled our Corporate Annual Assembly meeting for January 24, 2022, at 7PM. Just like last year, we are offering this both in person and via zoom.

If you’d like to join us via zoom, please call the main office with your email and we will email you the zoom link. Each congregation can bring 1-4 voting delegates depending on the size of your congregation. At the end of this letter will be your number of delegates who are able to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting. Please call the main office at 701.284.6795 to let us know who those delegates are because if they are joining via zoom, we’d like to send them a hard copy of packet given at the meeting. This also helps us know if we will have a quorum.

We thank you for your participation and partnership with Park River Bible Camp. We value you and your congregation, the support given for the last 85 years, and the generosity displayed over and over, and we do ministry together. Happy Christmas and Happy New Year!

“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy!” Luke 2:10

As we prepare for this Annual Meeting, we’d like to have a vote on who can serve on the Board of Directors for Park River Bible Camp. Given below is the policy for our constitution and the changes we’d like to have the Assembly vote on at the meeting. As per the constitution we need to vote on this two times (this year) and at the Annual meeting in 2023 as well.

 

 

In Grace,

Rebecca Kjelland
