Episode 6: Swish! Hospitality and The Art of Being Funny.

Welcome to Church Chat, the show where we have the conversations about ministry you wish we were having. Today Josh and Emily are joined by Derek Hodne, Program Director at Camp Orchard Hill. They share funny camp stories and talk about how humor will improve your preaching, how to bounce back from cringe-worthy mistakes, the value of a shared experience, and more!

Derek and Wife

Derek graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University in 2002 with a degree in Biblical Studies and Elementary Education and thought he would have a long career in teaching. But in 2006, after 4 fun years teaching 6th grade in Somerset, NJ, God clearly called him back to Camp Orchard Hill to serve in the full-time Program Director position.
