NE Region Retreat

Apr 6, 2016

SFC Chapters leaders have a tough job. They’re missionaries to a culture that not many understand. They work full-time jobs in resort towns and then often put 20+ hours a week into loving their local shred community. The winters get long and the days sometimes get lonely. So we concocted a plan a few years ago to support these hard working volunteers with a weekend of prayer and refreshment each season. This year in the middle of March I had the great pleasure of joining up with SFC USA’s North East region for their festivities.

My wife, Marissa, and I arrived around 5am on Saturday morning after landing in Massachusetts and midnight. After a few hours of shut eye we got in on the action and headed to the hill for a fun day of riding and talking shop on the chairlifts. After a dinner of the best pizza I’ve had in years we went on a quick adventure to frozen lake and came back to the house to go through a Weekly Winter Word and check up on how things are going in each chapter. The next day we got to ride some more at Loon Mountain and attended one of Marcus Corey’s famous mountain top services. All-in-all, it was a weekend full of laughs, prayers, Dunkin’ Donuts, and great stories from a season of heartfelt ministry. Mission Accomplished.

I’d like to give a big shout out to the Corey family for opening their home, and to Nathan Jenkins for hosting the crew. You guys rock.
