Staff Retreat 2013

Staff Retreat 2013

This year, Crosspoint Church staff went to Hilton Head for our annual staff retreat. Once a year, the church staff spends many days together fellowshipping with one another and celebrating, evaluating, and dreaming about areas of ministry within our local body. As this is my first year on Generation LINK, it was the first staff retreat I had the privilege of attending.
A church in Hilton Head generously opened up a room in their facilities for us to use during the morning and afternoon to celebrate, evaluate, and dream about each of the ministries within the church. It was the youth room; so naturally, it was filled with old couches that made it quite comfortable and relaxing. We greatly missed Rachel, Jared, and Philip who are serving in India through Generation LINK – but were able to skype them in for one of our sessions. By 3pm every day, we were out on the beach experiencing gorgeous weather and having great fellowship with each other. The highlights of the beach seemed to have been bocce ball and volleyball.

 The last night we were there we went out to eat with each other and enjoyed some delicious seafood. The first picture below is the docks by the restaurant we went to, the second picture is one the whole group, and the third one is Generation LINK staff!
  
I feel greatly blessed to be a part of this staff and get to witness what the Lord is doing in and through this local body of believers. It was a greatly encouraging time to sit underneath the teaching of our pastors and pray with one another.  The first morning, Jeremy exhorted us in the discipline of prayer and the next morning, Jason encouraged us greatly by reminding us that we labor and suffer here because we are citizens of a coming Kingdom!
Hebrews 13:14 – “For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.”
