Carol Joy Holling Camp

Give us one day, and we’ll give you one year! PLAN-IT is for everyone responsible for faith formation program planning, including pastors, Christian educators, youth ministers, DCEs, and volunteers. Come by yourself, bring a partner, or bring a small team! This is a guided planning and sharing experience for those responsible for ministry. Review essential ministry lenses, planning tools, and usable template. Participants design a well-balanced, one year framework, with an emphasis on self-care and building a leadership producing culture.


This PLAN-IT will be facilitated by Emily Dalen (Director of Faith Formation at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church – Omaha) and Katherine Albin (Manager of Retreat and Volunteer Programs at Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries).



  • Yourself and if you want, a small team

  • A laptop or tablet

  • The “sacred dates” you need to plan around such as church, community and your own family schedules! (don’t forget to plan your vacations!)


$43 for two people from the same church or ministry organization. More people can attend for an additional $15 per person. 


The cost does not include lunch. Feel free to bring a sack lunch, grab food in town, or eat in CJH Camp's dining hall for $10.50.
