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 2014-15:
Shape the Future is to lay the foundation for a national dialogue called The Identity Initiative.
Focus Retreats in 2013-14 began this dialog and retreats in 2014-15 will report on and continue the progress.
However, we will also take time to celebrate, relax, refresh and just hand together.
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.
