Praise God that we have 27 people, mostly pastors/elders, deacons, and core co-workers from 8 different churches attended the CLRC’s leadership training seminar retreat from April 23-25, 2009 at Lake Gaston. They came from the Triangle area and other cities of North Carolina and they were blessed and renewed from the retreat. The theme of this year’s seminar was The Shepherding Ministry of a Church (教會的牧养). We thank God for the two very special speakers, Brother Bian Yun Bo (邊雲波) and Pastor John Hsu (許道良), who gave inspiring messages from the Word of God and from their long, rich and faithful ministry experiences. Besides the spiritual messages, we had sharing by other pastors during workshop on their pastoral experiences; special video / singspiration with CLRC sceneries; collective morning devotions; a special presentation on healthy eating; and wonderful fellowships throughout the retreat. God has also blessed us with sunny and mild weather.
