David Glenn to Oversee Camp Au Sable 

The Michigan Conference welcomes new associate director of Youth Ministries, announcing a restructured Youth department. 


On December 5, the Michigan Conference Executive Committee appointed David Glenn to serve as the new associate director of Youth Ministries. Having accepted the position on Friday, December 8, he has begun to shoulder some responsibilities and will officially assume his new position from January 1. In this capacity, David will oversee both the ministry and operations at Camp Au Sable.

This appointment marks an adjusted configuration within the Youth department, where Chad Bernard serves as director, and Camp Au Sable will now fall under its purview. Chad and David will fulfill the responsibilities that were previously held by Ken Micheff over the past 16 years. We appreciate and extend our thanks to pastor Ken for his dedicated service as a youth and camp director during that period. Pastor Ken supervised various expansion projects at camp, and he’s widely acknowledged as a leader in camp ministry within the Division.

Currently serving as a religion and English teacher for freshmen and senior grades at Great Lakes Adventist Academy (GLAA), David has served in this position since the last school year. He will finish the academic year before fully transitioning to his new responsibilities at the end of the school term.

David brings broad experience to his new role, having been involved with Camp Au Sable since 2017. His previous roles include working as a team member of the summer staff, serving as a camp intern, and holding the position of assistant director since 2019. In these capacities, he organized and implemented summer programs, played a key role in ensuring compliance with camp licensing and accrediting bodies, assisted the director in personnel recruitment and hiring, managed staff placement, and contributed to the development of summer camp logistics and programming, among other responsibilities.

We prayerfully anticipate the positive impact that his experience working with young people and holding leadership roles at Camp Au Sable and GLAA will bring to both camp and Youth Ministries moving forward.
