This past Thursday through Saturday the elders and staff of ACC got way to Lake Geneva Conference Center for a 48 hour retreat. It was fantastic! We spent time sharing our lives, praying for each other, reviewing the last 5 years of God’s work at ACC, dreaming about what God might want in the next 3-5 years, and praying for God’s gracious blessing to remain upon us.
I walked away from our retreat with a heart overflowing with gratefulness to God for the godly and passionate leadership team that he has assembled at our church. By his grace we are unified yet diverse, great friends yet not afraid to disagree or confront, and hard working and committed to the gospel yet relying wholly upon God for lasting results.
I love our staff and elders. When is the last time you prayed for them?
God’s word encourages us to support and pray for those in leadership over us. Will you take a few minutes right now and pray for our leaders?
Elders: Ray Demich, Mark Birmingham, Jim Johnson, Ken Kerr, Jim Ray, and me.
Staff: Carolyn Eiter, Kris Milashus, Chris Modrzejewski, Scott Williams, Jim Young, and me. (Yes, pray for me twice! Trust me – I need it!)
I hope you’ll do this regularly. Thanks!
