The first weekend of August is always a favorite around flood as we head off to Berry College to EQUIP- SUPPORT- and ENCOURAGE our School Chapter leaders for the upcoming school year. This year we took 70 students representing 14 school chapters in Forsyth and North Fulton counties. The annual retreat at Winshape Wilderness allows students leaders to bond as a group, learn more about their roles, start their chapter planning, and much more.
The most important component of the weekend is spending some intentional time with Jesus and getting minds and hearts set on Him. Prayer, worship, devotionals, and reading the word of God are central to the retreat. This year, leaders are camping out on the book of Nehemiah as they prepare to lead their chapters. At the retreat, students looked at how they are “rebuilding” their schools through serving, what role God has called them to through flood, the weapons they will use as they fight the enemy, and their commitment to staying the course and “not coming down” from the “great work” they are doing (Nehemiah 6:3). The entire weekend was pretty powerful! The video below gives you a great idea of the heart of students and why they serve-lead with flood! You will love their hearts!
