I am sure there are other churches, besides Bethel, where the church’s leadership spends a day and a night together each year at a prayer-and-planning retreat, but I honestly do not know of any (and I think it is fair to say that that the practice is rare). However, this is the habit of Bethel’s leaders, and I think it speaks highly of their love for Bethel Church and their dedication to the church’s ministry.
So what happened at this gathering of over thirty Bethel Council members and ministry leaders that took place last Friday and Saturday? The short and honest answer is: more than I possibly can say; however, I will pass on a few highlights:
This year’s leadership retreat was called “Chasing the Dream.” I believe our time together was another small, but important step forward in seeing God’s dream for Bethel Church come true.--Pastor Tom
