Led by Clancy Cruise, pastor of the Grace Brethren Church, Marysville, Ohio, and the executive director-elect of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, the 48-hour retreat is following the theme of “Leverage.”
The retreat began Monday evening, September 21, as Clancy talked about the importance of having friends while being involved in ministry. On Tuesday morning, the group moved to the campfire circle by the lake to discuss the topics of unity, leadership, discipleship, vision, and relationship. In small groups, they talked about each topic and later reported about their conversations to the larger group.
The retreat continues through Wednesday morning.
