Mt. Morris Camp and Retreat Center is pleased to announce the hiring of our new executive director. His name is Dan Scharnhorst. We anticipate his starting date to be sometime in the end of February.
Dan has been in full-time outdoor ministry for over 18 years serving as Program Director at Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp in Story City, IA and most recently as the Executive Director of Bear Creek Camp near Wilkes Barre PA. He has also work as a parish youth director and as Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Manitowoc County.
Dan is a true mid-westerner having grown up in north Iowa and spending time in Minnesota and Wisconsin. For reasons passing understanding he is a fan of the Minnesota Vikings and is convinced that someday, they will win the Super Bowl.
Dan and his wife Becky (originally from Manitowoc) are excited to move back to Wisconsin and to begin a new adventure at Mt. Morris. They are the parents of Max (11) and Maddie (9).
With a passion for outdoor ministry and a natural enthusiasm for people, life, and all of God’s good gifts, Dan is looking forward to building relationships with the guests and supporters of Mt. Morris.
