Sherpa weekend 2

Submitted by Mark Riessen on 3 August, 2018

This weekend is the second Sherpa retreat, where they will focus on Leadership formation, and what it means in thinking and practise for leadership to be a function that emerges from discipleship. The intent is to look at how our identity, purpose and priorities are shaped, and how we in turn shape those around us. Please pray for God to continue to move in the lives of this group as they journey and learn together over the weekend.
