One of the highlights of each year for me is getting to get together with the Ministry Directors Team. Not only do we connect as colleagues, but as friends and brothers and sisters in Christ. We just finished our annual week of meetings in Tulsa. We spent time sharing highlights from 2016, discussing important issues for 2017, and praying and fasting together as a team for God's guidance.
This year, we were joined by a former LEI board member and Tulsa business owner. He helped us work through an evaluation of our organization and set goals based on where we want to be in 3 to 5 years. It was a very valuable exercise and we all felt the excitement and sense of focus that comes from having a unified road map going forward.
