Part 8: Let's All Go to GA!

Video recording: 9 minutes, 17 seconds

Returning Home: the best way to wrap GA up in a big bow is to plan ahead.

Be sure to build in some structured time when you get back for reflection and discussion, especially if your congregation takes a summer break shortly afterwards. GA is a big, beautiful, crazy experience and attendees definitely benefit from a chance to process what they've seen, heard, felt, learned, and experienced. Once they've made sense of it, sharing their experience is vital!

This video series is hosted by: Deborah Neisel-Sanders, Jessica Laikeman, Mary Carter-Vail, and Scott Stewart.
