Press Release: Peter Bergstrom retires from 10 year post as Executive Director of Episcopal Camps & Conference Centers

Press Release: Peter Bergstrom retires from 10 year post as Executive Director of Episcopal Camps & Conference Centers

Citing health problems, Peter Bergstrom announced his retirement, naming Bill Slocumb as his replacement.

From the press release:

I retired from Camp Stevens in 2012, and now it is time for me to fully retire. I have had pulmonary fibrosis for the past 8 years. It has not been much of a problem for me until this year, but now I need supplemental oxygen for any physical task. While there are still many things I would like to do with and for ECCC, I don’t have the energy to take on anything new. Fortunately, Bill Slocumb has been selected to serve as Director and he has a very strong and creative Board to support him, as well as Ashley Graham-Wilcox, his very competent associate.

For more about the transition and the new team, read the full press release published on the ECCC site.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
