Youth Staff Retreat - 2008

We just had a great time at a Youth Staff retreat with all of our campuses together. Eric Hystad is our global youth Pastor (which simply means he is over all the students’ ministries of second Houston). I love being a part of this great team!!!

We had the privilege of having Shawn Smith from FBC Springdale to lead a few sessions why were on the retreat.
