Massanetta Springs Welcomes
New Acting Director of Programs

Massanetta Springs is excited to announce Hannah von Oeyen Altman will join our Ministry Team as Acting Director of Programs (ADP) beginning January 22, 2018. Hannah has a long history with Massanetta Springs. She is a former camper and counselor at Camp Massanetta, and has attended the Bible Conference and Church Music Conference with her family since she was very young.

In addition to her personal connection, Hannah brings a wealth of educational and professional experience to this position. She is a graduate in both geography and music from the University of Mary Washington, and is currently about half way through her Masters of Divinity studies at Union Presbyterian Seminary. Hannah paused her course of study to accept the ADP position. After her feet are on the ground at Massanetta Springs it is her hope (and Massanetta’s) that she will continue at Union.

Her relevant professional experience includes work as an Intern at Craigsville Presbyterian Church, Interim Music Director at Warrenton Presbyterian Church, Conservation Outreach Manager for the Rainforest Trust, and a Stewardship Coordinator for the Friends of the Rappahanok through AmeriCorps. She has also worked in camping ministry both here at Massanetta Springs and at Meadowkirk Camp and Conference Center.

Upon accepting the ADP position Hannah said, “I feel extremely blessed and humbled to have been offered the position of Acting Director of Programs. I remember fondly, Laura Holbrook, who held the position while I was growing up, and who played an integral role in my faith journey. I hope to help the programs at Massanetta Springs continue to grow and affect the lives of youth just as they have done for me.”

Executive Director, Rev. Clayton Rascoe, said upon Hannah’s acceptance of the position, “Through the whole interview process Hannah’s passion for our ministry was obvious. I believe her personal connection to Massanetta, and her deep desire to deepen the faith journey through of others through our ministry will serve her and our guests well. I am thrilled she has accepted, and am excited to begin working with her.”
