What Kind of Leader Are You?

This past weekend was the launch of Leadership Dynamics in Camping Ministry, a 3-credit undergraduate LBC course we now offer here at Arrowhead.

Here's a photo from the lighter side of the course.  Can you tell which one is the Polar Turtle?

Actually, it was a pretty intense weekend.  But, the uniqueness of the camp setting and various teaching formats made for a fantastic learning environment.  For me, it was a great blessing - to live and learn in community with students preparing for life and ministry.

We have two more weekends - one here at Arrowhead in conjunction with our Shepherds Camp Spring Retreat and the other on campus at LBC.  I am also looking forward to our Discipleship course which will be offered over the summer.

Caption this...

Found this graphic tucked away here at camp.  Depending on who you are... it's from back in the day.  What caption would you give it?

Wedding Bells...

"So... it's the last winter retreat for the season at Arrowhead.  Wanna get married?"

Actually, that's my paraphrase.  It was much more heartfelt and sincere.  This past weekend we had the privilege of watching one of our staffers get engaged.  The D's were here as a family to serve as our James Project group (they were full time staff back in the 90's and early 00's).  Brielle's boyfriend had made the necessary preparations and with her family (and us camp folks) in attendance, he got down on one knee and popped the question.

I'm not sure he even got through asking when she tackled him with a huge hug.  Everyone cheered and more teary-eyed hugs were exchanged. 

What a way to wrap up our winter retreat season!

Alumni Weekend

Our winter retreat season has come to a close.  But before spring hit northeast PA our guest group had a great time at camp with enough cold to keep snow on the ground.  Our James Project group for the weekend was a family that served here at Arrowhead (and Rock Mountain) full time for a number of years.  It was a blessing to reunite and partner with them to serve for the weekend. 

Also, they win the "James Project Group Who Traveled The Furthest" award clocking in 9+ hours of driving, over 500 miles... one way!
