Mark Gray - Executive Director

Kate and I have been married since 2009 and are blessed with two kids: Talia and Nehemiah. We are from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where we both graduated from Grove City College. Kate earned her Master’s in Education from the University of Pittsburgh, and I earned my Master's of Education from Grand Canyon University in Arizona.

We are excited to be part of what God is doing at PHOC. Since 2010, we have worked full time in Christian camp ministry. We appreciate the way camp provides a place for people to love each other and experience Jesus in significant ways.

When you visit PHOC this season to enjoy the lake, zip line, archery, and so many other activities, we hope more than anything that you encounter Jesus and are reminded of how much He loves you.




Ellie Williamson - Hospitality and Outreach Director

Michael and I live in Mansfield and married in May of 2017. Michael earned his BSN from Ashland University in 2014 and works as an RN for OhioHealth Mansfield, and I earned my Bachelors of Science in Nutritional Science from The Ohio State University in 2013.

I worked in a number of career fields before being planted here, and I couldn’t be happier to have joined our small but mighty team. It’s incredible to be part of a Christ-centered organization that values conservation and community in addition to our desire to share the love of Jesus.

You may see me out in the community in my PHOC gear, or here onsite planning with, welcoming and hosting our many groups that make PHOC their home for events and retreats throughout the year. We hope that when you make your way to Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp, you encounter Jesus’ steadfast love and find yourself in a place where you can refresh, find adventure, and grow in your faith.
