Meet the New Executive Director - Ethan McGivern!
After 25 years as a law enforcement officer, Ethan is looking forward to this new chapter in his life, pursuing purpose and fulfillment, at Walnut Ridge Christian Camp. He is married to Kimberley, his bride of over 20 years. They have five adult children and two grandchildren. Ethan has been very involved in many facets of ministry, including church security and men’s ministry. He is a graduate of the Indiana School of Ministry and is pursuing his licensure through the Assemblies of God. He has a passion for leadership, teaching, counseling, anything to do with the outdoors, and spreading the Word of God. His life’s ambition is to empower people to be their best, while serving in the Kingdom with excellence. “I want to provide a safe place for people to pray, worship and freely commune with God.”
“I have been working in ministry with Ethan McGivern for 20 years, and I can say with absolute certainty, that he is a man after Gods own heart. Being an avid outdoorsman and retired police officer, he brings a diverse mix of expertise to the administrative team at Walnut Ridge Retreat Center (WRRC). He is an empowering leader, striving for excellence not only for himself, but for his team members as well. God has blessed Ethan with a passion for the vision of WRRC, as we partner with group leaders to create a fun and intimate retreat experience where we embrace God, together.”
