focus 14/15

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


Regional FOCUS Retreats provide 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:

Building upon the good will and momentum of last year, we will:

1.    Celebrate our mutual commitments to Truth, Relationships and Mission;
2.    Review and provide feedback for the Charis Commitment to Common Mission, Draft One;
3.    Explore the implications of forming part of a global movement.

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.
