I’m glad to say that I am back safely from my trip to Hamilton Ontario and the 2016 Power to Change National Staff Conference. It was a great time of renewed vision and team building with The Life Project. Around half of our team works remotely, some in the eastern Canadian and US regions so it was really great to be able to reconnect with the team face-to-face instead of simply by phone/email.
The conference presented us with a good mix of combined (all-staff) events and sessions, as well as time to get together as individual ministries. Our main conference speaker, Gary Thomas, was excellent. We had a number of sessions with him, as well as a few break-out sessions we could choose on specific topics that interested us.
I also included above a couple shots of our activities on the travel day. While waiting for our plane to come in, I and a couple other staff members visited the HMCS Haida. It was fascinating to hear the stories from one of our group who previously served in the Canadian Air Force and was for a time stationed on board a similar ship. Thanks Wes!
