Leadership Council Retreat

Friday the 13th was nothing to fear for the Allegheny Conference Leadership Council.  We had the privilege of gathering for the January weekend at the home of Kathy Holsopple to discern and vision what the year may hold for our conference. Even the hurdles of health ailments were overcome: those not present in body were able to guide the discussion with the help of videoconferencing.  We joined in worshipful work, taking time to be built up by scriptural insight and song and to get to know each other better in addition to discussing the financial situation, affiliation, the upcoming delegate session in March at Morgantown, and even looking ahead at plans for the summer gathering at Laurelville.

Ample home-cooked meals were generously prepared by Kathy, Joy, and Chris.  Thanks also to Jeanette and Bill Hunsberger of Schantz Haus Bed and Breakfast for housing some of the out-of-town LC members.
