So we are six months away from a unique retreat we host in Banff, Alberta. From Sept. 30-Oct. 2, 2011 we will join together for this leadership development & spiritual formation retreat in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Always a highlight of our VP3 calendar, The Enriching Retreat is a time of shared reflection and discussion, pause and prayer in which we gather around this central leadership question, “What is required of us in order to develop others as leaders in Jesus’ name amidst the unique challenges of our contexts?” For so many of us the Spirit is inviting us to move beyond the work of leading to the work of developing others as leaders. For others of us we are needing time to slow down and to reflect upon what the Lord is up to in our context and in our person. All of this is offered in an absolutely breath taking setting. We hope you will consider joining for this opportunity. Randy and I are prayerfully looking forward to the conversation that develops at this year’s retreat.
