Reminiscing About The Gathering 2015

By Cailey Morgan

This is overdue, I know, but I thought I’d share some memories from The Gathering, our Assembly in Calgary at the end of April. It was a long week of work, networking and learning, but it was inspirational and lots of fun too!

We were in the midst of the Vancouver/Calgary playoff series which added to the fun. I made lots of friends, and more enemies, but at least everyone had something to say!

The theme was Encountering God at Every Age, and there were brilliant lectures and workshops to help us explore how to raise up leaders of every generation for God’s kingdom.

Hope you got a glimpse of all the fun we had. If you were there, what was your favourite moment?
