Conference Staff Retreat
HULBERT, OKLA. – The Oklahoma Conference staff, along with family members, traveled to Sequoia National Park, March 30-31, 2018, for a spiritual retreat. The time away from the office offered a unique opportunity to worship in nature, and to get better acquainted personally. We enjoyed wonderful meals, walks in nature and a special opportunity to study and worship together.
Throughout our time together, different officers and department directors led out to encourage us to sing or to interact with one another. They used various personal assignments to have us reveal specific items about ourselves. We were entertained and educated all at the same time. The theme for our time together was “God With Us” taken from the first chapter of Ellen G. White’s book The Desire of Ages.
We came away from the weekend refreshed, renewed and more personally involved with our work team and officers. We can now better serve one another and our Oklahoma members.
