New Interim Director

Bear Creek Camp is excited to announce that we have brought on Pastor Jimmy Lee Werley as an Interim Executive Director. Pastor Werley graduated from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 1978 and was ordained later that year. He has served in several Lutheran congregations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and was also a Pastor in a shared ministry with the UCC for 14 years. He has a long history of leadership in youth ministries in the ELCA and has served at Bear Creek Camp in many capacities, such as volunteering as summer Chaplin for many years since 1986 and serving on the Board of Directors, and his children and grandchildren have been campers and summer staff as well. Jimmy Lee retired from full time ministry in September 2017 and enjoys spending time with his wife Melanie Becker Werley, their 4 children, and their 5 grandchildren. We are looking forward to Jimmy Lee joining Bear Creek Camp and we ask that everyone joins us in regular prayer for his success, as well as for the search process and all of those involved, as we complete the search for a new spirit filled leader in this significant and transformational ministry.
