Afternoon with the Council

It might have been dreary and rainy up here at Malenovice today, but inside it was anything but that!

The room was warm and cheery in the lodge as JV country leaders and their wives met for an afternoon session at JV Council.

This council functions as the leadership team for JV, shepherding staff in their countries, and thinking strategically about the ministry with Dave and the executive team.

Dave led a session for them this afternoon on staff development, asking the questions: What's going well? What needs repair or fixing? What is missing?

What a fantastic group of people in this room, all thinking on these questions and helping to work towards greater effectiveness in the ministry, as well as personally for themselves and their teammates.

Dave's brother, Josh, is the Council Chairman, and his wife, Kristi, helps to shepherd the country leader wives.

Kristi caught me taking a picture of them! 😀See the resemblance between Dave and his brother?!

They, along with everyone else in this room, are doing such an incredible job of thinking strategically about how to be more effective at reaching young people with the Gospel, and training them up to be disciple makers. I admire and appreciate every one of them.

And especially this one!

Looking forward to our spring conference that starts tomorrow, and hearing Dave's teaching once again!
