YELM, WA (September 29, 2017) — Mark Novak has been named transition executive director for Cascades Camp.
Tom Moline, who has been executive director of the camp since it was founded in 1987, is retiring. His wife, Donna Moline, the camp’s business and guest services manager, also has worked at the camp since its beginning and is retiring.
Mark Lindberg, president of the camp’s board of directors, thanked the couple for their years of service.
“From the early building years, through exciting growth in program and facility, and now to the culmination of well-lived careers, Tom and Donna have exemplified excellence, servant leadership, and visionary direction,” he said. “They accomplished all of this with an unwavering and dedicated focus on inviting all who attend into a personal relationship with Jesus, and encouraging growth in their walk with him.”
The Molines will conclude their work at the end of the year. Novak will begin his duties in January 2018. He recently retired as the executive minister of Develop Leaders for the Evangelical Covenant Church and is a former Pacific Northwest Conference superintendent.
