I’m so stoked for our fall event. We’re calling it a retreat, which it is, but it’s a combination of a retreat/overnight at one of our church campuses — White Bear Lake.
We always ask: What’s the point or what’s the win? We are doing this event so students can have a low-cost retreat experience in a non-threatening environment. Also, we want this to be an evangelistic event students invite their friends and students form more immediate relationships with each other and other leaders (in other words, GEL with each other). But, we also want to teach students (through three sessios) that God Entered Life (GEL), and continues to do so through Christ in them.
I can’t wait. It’s going to be sweet. And I think God is going to use it to truly GEL this ministry.
