We are excited to announce the calling of James Forte as our Urban Outreach Program Director. James will be joining us to provide programming leadership that firmly establishes Streamside as a sustainable ministry that continues to primarily reach urban children, teens and families with the Gospel through quality Christian camping programs. Last summer, James interned with us as Men’s Head Counselor, coordinating much of pre-camp training as well as managing our relationships with ministry partners. During his short time here, James had a tremendous impact on campers, counselors, permanent staff and ministry partners through his sincere desire to seek after the Lord. James has now graduated from Delta State University with a Master’s in Community Development with an Emphasis on Sustainability. James has over 6 years experience working with children and communities by way of the Peace Corps, Teach for America (teacher and athletic coaching) and as a Social Entrepreneur Fellow at Delta State. James will begin at Streamside on January 15, 2018. His primary focus will be recruiting campers through ministry partnerships, planning and executing Streamside camps and retreats, and assembling and mobilizing staff and volunteer teams.
