Campbell joined the South Central Conference in April 2020. He is a third-generation pastor and recently completed almost eight years as the Conference Minister of the Michigan Conference, United Church of Christ.
Before beginning his Michigan ministry in 2012, Campbell served as an Interim Minister, Pastor, Co-Pastor, and Senior Minister at both historic and new churches in New England and North Carolina. In addition to leadership positions at Association, Conference and National settings of the UCC, Campbell has served on the boards of agencies promoting food independence and community organizing.
Campbell’s ministry with Conferences is grounded in, and guided by, the statement of purpose of the Central Atlantic Conference:
The conference exists to provide its associations, churches, clergy and laity with an extensive and varied support system, challenging them to a higher, broader and deeper vision of Christian ministry; strengthening and sustaining them in their efforts to be faithful in mission, and linking them to wider church agencies and to each other. It strives to lift up and celebrate our unity in Christ, the gift of our heritage and the richness of our diversity; and to be an agent of mission in our society and the global community.
Campbell and his spouse, Eileen, a quilter and creator of liturgical stoles, reside in New Hampshire, and are the parents of two grown sons, Samuel, a university chaplain in Worcester, Massachusetts; and Nathan, a lawyer in Washington, DC.
Rev. Jeremy Albers joined the camp staff in 2017 as the Director of Outdoor Ministry after many, many years as a camper, SALT, Summer Camp Session Director and finally Summer Camp Program Director. He is passionate about outdoor ministries and the life changing experiences that occur at camps, conferences, and retreats.
Some of Jeremy’s hobbies include playing video and board games, gardening, graphic design, arts and crafts, traveling, renaissance festivals, and spending time with his animals. He loves Thai food, and learning new recipes (especially spicy or decadent ones).
Currently, Jeremy is also a Ph.D. candidate at Texas Christian University in the field of colonial Latin American history where he is exploring Andean cosmology, notions of healing and wholeness, and adaption during the 16th and 17th centuries in the Viceroyalty of Peru.
He loves to learn, acquire new skills, and help others find their own passions. He loves to meet new people and discover how they are changing lives and transforming the world.
Some might think that Terri sprung from the very essence of Slumber Falls as she has been with us since January 2005.
She understands the nuances and inner workings of the camp. She is the glue that holds the office together and makes sure that we are able to keep our lights on and other bills paid.
As the assistant administrator, Terri is very capable of answering a wide variety of questions. In her free time, she loves hanging out with her family and taking adorable pictures of her three grandson’s. Terri is a blessing to the camp and loves chatting with groups and giving tours!
Stacey has been with us since November 2011 and is a ball full of energy.
Her passion for life is contagious. Stacey brings an incredible organization to the office and assists our Retreat Groups with scheduling events as well as handling the duties of the South Central Conference office. Stacey is our resident “Crazy Cat Lady”, she loves to hear stories about pets and can often be heard talking to our office cat Zeke. If you have a question, Stacey is eager to help.
