EAST Staff Retreat 2018

Rev Dr Daniel Chua (Mount Carmel B-P Church), spoke on the theme of “One Heart” at EAST annual Staff Retreat 2018. Pastor Daniel covered “The heart God wants,” “Hearts knit as one,” and “Standing together as one” in his messages. The biblical characters of Saul, David, and Jonathan as covered in 1 Samuel were used to flag leadership dangers, focus on building strong relationships, and foster team unity.

Small group discussions after each message helped to crystalize implications and applications on the personal and team level. Team building exercises using personality profiles drew much fun and laughter amidst self-disclosure and team games. For work sessions, the team covered three areas: A thanksgiving time of reflecting on God’s faithfulness over the past school year; a time to refresh the roots, vision, mission, and values of our school; and a problem solving time to address identified priority issues as a team. Praise God for the meaningful time of relational connections and planning.
