Director Ben Powell exudes a deep-seated passion for the outdoor ministry at Dogwood Acres (DWA). A former DWA Ministry Team Chair, Ben brings to his work extensive experience with the inner workings of the camp, many years of business and financial expertise, and a deep sense of call. He's drawing out the very best of Dogwood Acres in all respects, with improvements in programs, management, communication, financial transparency and accountability, involvement from all quarters of the Presbytery, and important new partnerships. Under Ben's leadership, use of this "well-set gem"--through which guests and campers are invited to experience peace, renewal, fellowship, personal growth, and opportunities for strengthening their faith--has increased considerably for the enjoyment of all. We're very excited to have Ben Powell as Director of the Dogwood Acres Retreat Center and Summer Camp!
