The future of Procter Center

The Diocese of Southern Ohio is extremely blessed in the Procter Center.  The land, which was donated to the diocese in 1952 by Jane E. Procter in honor of her husband, William Cooper Procter, is an ever more vital component of our diocese as well as the region.  Procter has given us a common place to gather for conferences and meetings; it has developed sustainable agriculture programs to teach about food needs in a growing world; and maybe most importantly, it has helped shape the lives of scores of young people who have been formed by its camps.

Looking to the future

The Procter Center is at a crossroads.  Procter is vital today and has a glorious past, but with aging buildings and untapped potential, it is essential that we look to the future.  This is why we’ve commissioned a Case Study Team, led by Jon Boss, to complete a case study for Procter Center that will help us to create a strategic plan.  The goal is to ascertain what we need to do to ensure that Procter continues to be a viable resource into the future.  As Bishop Henry Wise Hobson said in 1952, “In the future, I can see many developments which will make this gift of greater and greater value to the whole program of our diocese.”  What is our vision for the future of Procter?

How you can help

In its strategic planning, the Case Study Team has determined that we must develop a board comprising members from various specialized fields, including hospitality, food service, marketing, property maintenance, fund-raising and finance. If you have skills in one or more of these areas, we need you!

This is an opportunity to make a very real impact on the future of the diocese.  Please contact the Case Study Team by emailing Jon Boss at jbboss@fuse.net if you would be willing to use your talents to help shape the future of Procter Center.
