  • Sustainability of communities and environment including support for public lands

 

Goals

Mimanagish is located on the bank of the Boulder River deep in the heart of the Absaroka Beartooth Mountains. It is nearly surrounded by designated Wilderness that borders the world's first protected land, Yellowstone National Park, and is almost an hour’s drive from cell coverage. Mimanagish is truly unique in its remote location as there are few facilities world wide that are so accessible yet deep in pristine untrammeled land.

By nature of its remote unconnected location, Mimanagish is off the radar to most yet represents a national treasure.

Traditionally, Mimanagish has provided a place for worship, renewal, engagement, and social interaction for the churches of the Montana Northern Wyoming Conference of the United Church of Christ. With dwindling church membership numbers, these member churches find it difficult to maintain and support Mimanagish in the fashion that it deserves – both financially and in attendance.

We believe now is the time to share Mimanagish’s spiritually enlivening retreats with others who want to enrich their lives by interaction with the wilderness, each other, and their faith—especially those who are discriminated against or face difficulties dealing with life's challenges. UCC churches have always considered Mimanagish to be a mission. The MNWCUCC Conference is in a unique position to extend this mission to the world through Mimanagish while still maintaining support for local UCC church needs for spiritual retreat and development.

Accordingly, we are engaging with business and nonprofit leaders from within and without the UCC Conference to develop a more inclusive enterprise that allows for sustainability of the Mimanagish property and heritage. This Advisory Council is expected to provide guidance for a business plan and marketing approaches that are a fit with our Mission and Purpose. While these plans are in development, we are already reaching out through our Gay Pride camp, Wellness Camp, and Civic Action camps in 2018. In 2019, we plan to consolidate our classic programming and expand the offerings to include Nature Church, Native American, and Clergy Wellness retreats. All of which we believe can be supported by grants, retreat fees, and individuals as well as church donations

We ask for your support as we move in this exciting new direction.
