The Sound View Ministry Team is pleased to announce the hiring of an Assistant Camp Director at Sound View. After receiving 26 resumes and interviewing 4, we have selected David Edscorn of Hampton, Georgia. David is a graduate of Appalachian State University with a major in Recreation Management and a minor in Communications. He has a plethora of Christian camping experience as a Camp Counselor, Program Director, and Program Coordinator, primarily at two Presbyterian camps-- Camp Grier in Old Fort, NC and Calvin Center in Hampton, GA. He also has a background in the Presbyterian Church USA, with a firm understanding of the theology, polity, and organization of our denomination.
We, in the hiring process, were struck by the strength of his faith and his ability to speak clearly and openly, as well as passionately of his life in Christ. He was one of the few to express a solid concept of Stewardship and will fit in well with Sound View's emphasis in that regard.
David starts at Sound View March 31st. We are so pleased to have a Camp Director in Zack Brown and now an Assistant Camp Director in David of such high caliber and with such passion for Christian camping ministry. We look forward to the work they will do at Sound View together with our wonderful Office Administrator Sue Clark this next year and beyond. And we look forward to having you all meet David and seeing why we are so excited about his coming.
