One of the concrete vehicles that have effectively helped build up leaders over the course of time is the Breakthrough Weekend, a short-term retreat intentionally organized for people to experience rest and spiritual renewal. This is done in partnership with Covenant Evangelical Free Church of Singapore, the host of the said event. GCF South Metro is proactive about this because we see the critical need that caring for our soul is necessary in fulfilling our God-ordained roles and responsibilities.
Hence in our pursuit of mentoring next-generation leaders, we will be sending our NextGen leaders to the upcoming Breakthrough Weekend for Men and Women. Our team will include three of our pastoral staff (myself included), plus four men, and eight women. We will be in Singapore on March 18 until the 24th. Please pray for God’s protection upon us and, above all, that our love for the Lord may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ (cf. Phil 1:9-10).
[Note: With this in mind, I will not be posting any blog within the next 7-8 days. I will take this time as a week-long break. I hope to write about my personal experience and reflections as soon as I get back.]
