During the past 20+ years, regional FOCUS Retreats provided opportunities for FGBC leaders to refresh, reflect and retool.
While this year's retreat will build upon those values, we've adopted another really important goal:
The goal of FOCUS 2013-14:
Shape the Future is to lay the foundation for a national dialogue called The Identity Initiative.
During our brief 48 hours together, we will explore, create and commit to a cluster of shared values
that will guide us as we engage the following year in discussions that define
who we are, what we believe, and how we express those beliefs.
If you lead in a church that is a part of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches,
you are encouraged to attend this year's Focus retreat.
You will be re-freshed and will participate in a global discussion
about the values and identity of the Grace Brethren movement world-wide.
