Welcome to the 
Association of UMCRM

Welcoming New UMCRM Board Member Martha Pierce

13 Jan 2022 12:56 PM | Jen Burch (Administrator)

Martha Pierce has served in camp, retreat, and youth ministry in many roles over the years, including 15 years at Riverside UM Retreat in southwest Florida, and most recently in an interim role at UM Camp Mekokiko in Hawaii.

She is trained as a United Methodist EarthKeeper, Lay Servant, Master Naturalist, and a teacher trainer for Project Learning Tree. She resides at the Narrow Ridge Earth Literacy Center in Tennessee, where she serves as Board Chair. She has one daughter who resides in Knoxville.

Martha’s commitments to radical inclusion and sustainable Creation care align with UMCRM’s values and will enrich the work of the Association.

Some "fun facts" Martha shared with us:

1) I live in an off grid, straw bale home that I built myself.

2) I love power tools!
3) After a year of experimenting with free style pottery, my first pieces will be going up for sale this month!  

We are grateful for Martha’s willingness to help guide the UMCRM Association in a governance capacity, sharing her insight and experience with our community. Please join in praying for her and the other awesome volunteers who commit their time, talent, and treasure to the United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries Association.

Drop Martha a word of welcome and encouragement at her new UMCRM email address: martha.pierce@umcrm.org
