Summer Roundtable Retreat 2009


Each year, the Student Ministry Staff Team takes a short retreat to get away, pray, listen, create and plan the ministry map for the next semester of service at Second. We have a great friend in our ministry that makes their ranch in Brenham, Texas available to us whenever we need it and it's one of the most incredible and relaxing places in the world. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere for the first day and then began a series of brainstorming and calendaring sessions that led us into the wee hours of the night.

After seeing the direction that God continues taking us, I can honestly say that I've never been more excited about ministry than I am today. It's going to be an incredible Fall at Second and the opportunities for ministry are truly unbelievable. We're looking at new ways to connect with parents and families. We're focusing on making ministry more affordable and doable. We're discovering new ways of equipping our students for leadership and utilizing the circle of influence they have within their own communities, families and friends. We're going to be trying new things with discipleship and personal mentorships with our adult leadership and Student Ministry Staff Team. This year, Campus Ministry is going to be taken to a whole new level. We've got 12 focus schools that we'll be on every single week and we're already starting to get excited about some new relationships that are being established with some great organizations within these schools.
If you are a Student or Parent of a Student at Second Baptist, I hope you can sense the excitement as well. This is going to continue being an amazing ride... so get ready! If you aren't a member of Second, go to www.second.org for more information about the church.
