Agape Leaders Retreat @ PGH

I was telling auntie Audrey, “A night boating down in the Selangor River and the next night spent in the Palace. Palace of the Golden Horses, that is.” The leaders from various ministries met together for a 1 nighter to discuss on ministry matters. Not entirely a working retreat but more on Fellowship and Discussion.

Before going off to the hotel, that morning, I was shooting some photos for these cute little ones.

What most of us bring home is that, ministry is always about people. Everything we do will one way or another linked to people even if you are in the IT ministry. And people being people will be difficult to manage and it will be normal to have relational issues sometimes. As ministry leaders, we got to be aware of this and will a intimate relationship vertically with our Lord, we will learn to see horizontally each individual as unique and loved in God’s eyes.

Secondly, do not underestimate mamak sessions or sharing a meal. There are values there that cannot be quantify. So do it more often with people in your ministry.

Apart from that, rooms were nice and it was a good rest.
