Our student ministry team has been expanding (new regional campuses, a few newer hires, etc.) but it feels like we are starting to gel as a group. I'm a believer that "fit" is more crucial than "skill" on a team and I feel like our team fits together well and is well skilled at what they do.
Each year, we take a retreat with our youth team and spouses. It's a major highlight for us because we get to hang out, relax and gear up for Summer. Unfortunately because of the schedule of our new student center opening we had to change our dates this year at the 11th hour. The result: A few of our team had already mad plans and couldn't change them. I absolutely HATE that my poor planning results in them missing out.
I feel like our students and their families are under major attack. Divorces, sudden deaths and "run aways" have been on the increase lately. I hold onto the belief that when amazing things are about to happen, Satan gets busy.
