District Consultative Assembly – Goa

This year, our community went through the rigorous exercise of electing our leaders, thereby cementing them for the next 6 years.

At this point, we were blissfully unaware of what was yet to come at the three-day in-house retreat. Continue reading

The program began with a short time of praise led by the band, Christ Avenue. All the kids praised and thanked God earnestly as well as danced their little hearts out during this time. Later groups were formed based on their age and they had their big brothers and sisters as tribe leaders who led them through the different workshops.
