Chain Reaction summit

Friday night I got to be a 'fly on the wall' and listen in on the discussion at the Chain Reaction summit. It was a really cool time, just being able to listen in and hear the team process experiences and emotions from last summer.

Basically, it was an intense debriefing time, helping the leaders process, while the directors took detailed notes, all in an effort to set the stage and plan for this coming summer. Jeremy was the facilitator and included four discussion points for the leaders: Expectations, Preparation, Implementation and Take Aways.

What was most fun for me was to hear the convictions on these people's hearts, including:
- Students matter and can make a difference; it's worth it to invest in students.
- Helping local and indigenous ministries in communities is vital.
- The overall goal is having students live missionally. Empowering them to make a difference themselves, not just experiencing a Chain Reaction week, is the big picture.

Definitely lots of fun for me to be around people that exude passion about investing in students and making a difference in their communities and around the world.
