Fond Farewell

Judson Collins Director Takes New Post

After 10 years as Director of Judson Collins Center, Sarah Ratz has accepted a position as Camp Retreat Center Director at Beersheba Springs United Methodist Assembly in Tennessee beginning in early September.

“Sarah approached her role at Judson Collins with energy and a true passion for outdoor ministry. She will be missed,” said Rev. George Ayoub, Executive Director of Michigan Area United Methodist Camping. “We wish her well in her new endeavor.”

Sarah reflected positively on her time at Judson Collins. “When I came to Judson Collins, I knew I was home and have loved serving here. God has prepared me for a new path, and I believe that God is preparing someone new who will bring their own amazing gifts to Judson Collins Center.”
