This week’s team update is a guest post by Chris Williams, one of the Assistant District Superintendents in the Crossroads District.
As you know, summer is in full-swing. I hope that you are enjoying this season and that you are finding time to get away with your family for times of fun and rest. Here are a few things from the summer schedule to keep on your radar screen.
Summer means camping season and we have heard great reports from youth camps and kids camps happening across our district. Our district team visited Fairmount Camp this past week to check in on the kids camp happening there. With nearly 200 kids in attendance, Michele Henry and her team did an excellent job of helping the campers encounter God and respond to his work in their lives in an atmosphere that was full of fun and meaningful experiences for all of the participants. I was moved by the response of kids stepping out and going to the altar during the commitment time at the Wednesday evening rally. May God continue to work in the next generation stirring their hearts to be fully devoted to him!
Global Leadership Summit
Whether at church, school, business or home, you are leading people and projects every day. You’re leading in a culture that is constantly changing and redefining itself. Leadership takes perseverance, dedication and a commitment to stretch your mind, expand your heart and use your God-given gifts to impact your world in real and powerful ways.
The Global Leadership Summit, the Willow Creek Association’s annual world-class leadership event is one of the most accessible and affordable opportunities for leadership development available anywhere. On August 9-10, 2018 you’re invited to gather with thousands of leaders across North America for The Global Leadership Summit. Commit now to be a part of this annual event designed to deliver fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership content from a world-class faculty.
There are locations where you can attend this event all across our district, but one of our own churches is a premier host site. College Wesleyan Church in Marion is an official satellite location for the GLS 2018.
