Leadership Retreat August 26, 2008

Posted by Jeremy in ASU.

We just finished our Leadership retreat for this year’s leadership team.  It was a really great time of fellowship, reconnecting with each other, teaching, worship, and just having some fun with each other.

On Friday a bunch of the students volunteered to help move in the freshman.  The weather was nice and mild and there were so many people all over campus.  It was really sweet to get to meet some of the incoming freshman folks.  That night we started the leadership retreat.  Westminster Presbyterian Church in Boone allowed us to use their building for the retreat which was a huge blessing.  I gave a talk on John 3:22-30 focusing on verse 30.  We spent time talking about what a spiritual leader is and what that means for us as a leadership team in InterVarsity.  We also looked at a little bit of Paul’s life going through the “growing cross” diagram and walking through the below three passages.  As Paul saw his sin more and more he becomes more aware of his depravity and what he is saved from and the increasing need for the Savior in his life.  He must increase and I must decrease.

1 Corinthians 15:9 – least of the apostles
Ephesians 3:8 – least of the saints
1 Timothy 1:15 – chief of all sinners

The students loved there time at the retreat and it was a great time for me to connect with them as I didn’t even know all of them yet.  They also had an opportunity to brake into smaller groups for a time of prayer with each other which was really sweet for everyone.  It’s a really great leadership team this year and I’m excited to see how God is going to use them and me on the campus of ASU to reach His people!

Here are some picture from the weekend
