One of the things we are passionate about at Commission is raising up and training leaders. The decision to hold a weekend for some of the up and coming younger leaders within our churches came from this place of wishing to see men and women step forward into the plans and purposes God has for them.
Our inaugural Younger Leaders weekend was held at Wokefield Park in Reading, a beautiful spot for a relaxing time away. The intention was not only that we would encounter God but have time to get to know one another and build friendship over the course of the weekend.
Andrew Lawrence, Dave and Emma Rogers and Guy and Heather Miller all spoke at the weekend, really bringing their heart to the group. Dave Rogers brought a particularly powerful message on the importance of knowing your identity and using the gifts that God has given us. It was a brilliant time of encounter with times spent worshipping and hearing from God.
We're already looking forward to next year's event and look forward to seeing the fruit of this weekend.
