Free Methodist Youth Pittsburgh Conference Information and Resource Site

We are so excited to announce that the FMC Pittsburgh Conference Youth camp will be held back at Shekinah Ranch!! Shekinah Ranch is a concept/vision of Pastor Tom Ravasio. Having grown up in the Mon Valley of Pennsylvania, he realized that there was a great need for a place for young people and children to come where their lives would be connected to God through the use of horses,sports and recreation, a Godly environment and His presence. The camp has grown and developed many activities over the years that draw out the creativity, diverse interests, and adventurous spirit of every rancher.


This years camp is directed by Pastor Josh Green form Journey by Grace. He is able to answer 90 percent of all question you have. His contact number at the church is 724-823-0070 or email him The beauty of having camp at Shekinah this year, is really two fold in our eyes. One would be the fact that Shekinah has been in operation for 15 years and has a program and reliability to make sure we have all we need for the week. Secondly, is that they have a full staff, what that means is even our smaller churches just need to drop off students at Shekinah and pick them up. Even if you dont have a YOuth group full of students or you do, this camp works for both. For us here at the Conference we are really excited about the opportunity that our students will have to encounter God in a new exciting location and environment this summer.
