2012 Spring Leadership Retreat
About 150 students and 10 staff members gathered together at Redeeming Love Church in Saint Paul, MN to connect and prepare for their leadership roles for the 2012-2013 academic year. All of the students who were in attendance have dedicated themselves to a year of student leadership. Friday night's service was the first oppertunity for next year's leadership team to be unified in one place.
Throughout the evening student leaders were able to hear about next year's leadership theme, Integrated, which is based on the idea of citizanship. North Central understands that to be a leader you have to look at being an individual leader, a leader within a group, and a leader within the community. Integrated will focus on helping develop our student leaders to explore their kingdom purpose as well as develop intentional assesment and response within their communities.
Students were able to hear from the Vice President of Student Development, Mike Nosser, have break out sessions with their various organizations, they shared a meal together, had a service, a time for prayer and really were able to soak in the vision for next year. This kick-off event is an important step to looking forward!
