Unable to attend?
Leaders Retreat is required for ALL Leaders. We rarely make exceptions for these retreats because it will set up the Spring semester for us. If, for any reason, you cannot make these, please contact your Area Leader and Brian Chung ASAP. If you booked your flight already, we kindly ask that you check and see if you can switch the flight if the cost is very low.
Building Community / Technology Fast
2.5 days is a relatively short time. However, in God's hands, the time is precious and full of potential transformation. Talking on cell phones, updating facebook, or playing video games can easily whittle away the time bit by bit. We are asking you to abstain from these everyday activities to focus and be present to God and to others this retreat. Our hope is that we can build deeper community by abstaining from these things during the 5 days.
As a result, we will be placing all cell phones, laptops, iPods, iPod touches in a security box before the start of the retreat. Don't have any other means to keep time? We ask that you bring a watch and alarm clock if you need it. Many of us find the thought of not using our cell phones, iPods, e-mail, or Facebook distasteful, inconvenient, and possibly even ridiculous. If you feel like this no-tech-thing will be challenging, then no worries—you are in good company. If you don't want leaders retreat to be a sudden shock to your system and your parents when you part away from technology, we recommend a couple of key steps that can be found at the end of this email. Staff will have cellphones and laptops for safety reasons, but will not use them for social purposes.
What to Bring:
Finally, do be praying for our time this weekend, both for yourself and for us as a team. We want to be able to receive deeply from God as well as hear whatever ways he will be speaking to us and leading us. And if you need prayer in the days leading up to the retreat, definitely initiate with someone and get that.
