Student Impact Staff Retreat

At the beginning of September, our student ministry team had the opportunity to use the condo in Estes park that my family had stayed at earlier in the week. We had a great time brainstorming new ideas for programming, ministry, and other stuff. We also had a productive time planning out the rest of our 2008-2009 calendar. However, one of the most important things we did was to build team unity - since all of us have only been working together as a whole unit for a couple of months (Trevor and Amanda have been here the longest at one and a half years; I've been here for only six months, and Jay has only been a part of out team for about two months).

We got to see a really beautiful spot called Bear Lake and we also saw some Elk walk through downtown Estes park and walk across the main intersection in Estes.
