As a native of South Carolina, growing up I always loved camping and the outdoors, especially with Boy Scouts, but never imagined my own path would lead to serving full-time in our United Methodist Camp and Retreat Ministries. My wife, Romana Abelova, and I have two school aged daughters – Veronika and Viktoria – and over the course of the last four years, we visited 27 national parks and countless national monuments and historical sites. After serving as a local church pastor for the past 17 years, this was truly inspiring. Camp Indianola is equally inspiring as a place where the beauty, goodness and grace of God’s Creation can be not only seen, but experienced first-hand as we look to grow our faith in Christ. I look forward to continuing this journey. We are so excited to be calling the Pacific NW our new home!
