Staff Advance Recap

Today our directors from our four campuses had a staff advance. We call it an "advance" instead of "retreat" because it is a time to help us move forward as a team. One of the families in our church owns a beautiful condo right on the beach and let us use it for the advance. We also enjoyed an awesome lunch together at a great restaurant that is on the beach. Nothing like living in Florida in January!
Below was our agenda today if you'd like to take a peek at what we discussed.
