The executive committee of the Presbyterian Mission Agency board voted its approval on Sept. 13 of a piece of the plan to transfer responsibility for operating the Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center in northern New Mexico to the National Ghost Ranch Foundation.
The plan will be up for consideration by the full board later this week – with detailed agreements to be hammered out later this fall, and the intent that that the transition take effect on Jan. 1, 2017. Tony De La Rosa, interim executive director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, and Mark Hostetter, from the National Ghost Ranch Foundation, will make a joint presentation to the full board the evening of Sept. 14. The board’s finance committee also will consider matters related to the transfer.
The executive committee approved this measure, adding language that “this decision will become effective Jan. 1, 2017 conditional on all the prerequisites of transfer of operations being satisfied in the PMA’s sole determination.”
