Great to be back at Wycliffe Retreat Centre at Kangaroo Ground for the 2018 Facilitators Training for Ministry Renewal Retreats Victoria.

All of the notes are in our team dropbox.
I always enjoy the opportunity to spend a few days with the facilitators of Victorian Ministry Renewal Retreats. This year we met at the Wycliffe Retreat Centre at Kangaroo Ground. We covered a range of facilitation processes including preparing and delivering leadership development workshops, facilitating mapping exercises, handling difficult situations and people and the Biblical foundations of Retreating.
This last week I enjoyed a two day training workshop with the team of men and women who facilitate Renewal Retreats in Queensland with the Churches of Christ Conference. Great to meet up with some old friends and meet many of the newer facilitators.
We have established a dropbox system to share notes and this is now active.
It is always encouraging to have a couple of days listening to the journeys of Ministry Renewal Retreat Facilitators. This week I enjoyed the opportunity to work with around 35 facilitators for Presbyterian Pastors, Clergy Spouses and Women in Ministry groups from NSW, QLD, ViC and SA.
