The Friends of Pioneer leadership team is excited to announce that a partnership has been formed with Concordia Lutheran Ministries of Cabot, PA. Concordia Lutheran Ministries has agreed to purchase the Pioneer property with the stipulation that the ongoing ministry of camp be operated and managed by the board of the Friends of Pioneer, Inc. Both the Friends of Pioneer and Concordia Ministries are extensions of the LCMS, and both share a passionate zeal for outdoor ministry! We are thrilled to see God’s hand in this and are excited to see all that He has in store for the future of Pioneer!
Concordia Lutheran Ministries and the Friends of Pioneer are grateful to the board of Pioneer Camp and Retreat Center, Inc. and the leadership of the Eastern District of the LCMS, for their many years of stewardship at Pioneer. Their desire to see the ministry of Pioneer continue has brought us to this exciting place in time.
The good news is that the purchase of the property allows Pioneer to begin with a fresh new start - completely debt free! This means that every dollar raised will go directly into the ministry of Pioneer as well as to restoring, expanding, and enhancing the facility and its many ministry opportunities. This partnership means that future generations will be able to come to hear the life-changing gospel of Jesus and experience the presence of God as in generations past. Pioneer on the Lake: it’s a “new future: same legacy.”
