focus 13/14

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."


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.
