The plan is a simple one, I'm simple so simple plans work great with me. We are going to gather for a weekend next month in a vacation rental house, a really big one. We will eat meals together, hang out together, shoot pool, watch some movies, and play cards together (some Scrabble) and go bowling. Sprinkled through out the weekend we will have 5 training sessions and some time set aside for each of us to get alone and spend time with God in the Bible and in prayer.
So far the sessions we are going to look at are:
- Developing Healthy Boundaries
- Leading Small Groups
- Living Authentically
- Building Intentional Relationships
- (the fifth one is still in the works)
Most of all I really look forward to hanging out with the best YM team around. I love these folks who spend a couple hours each week with the teens in our church. Youth Ministry at NHC is only possible because of our great team. I pity the youth leader who feels as if he/she can do the youth ministry all alone.
We will finish our retreat together over breakfast on Sunday morning before heading off to church.
