Regional Leadership Weekend | 17 From Michiana!!

Last year four of our leaders attended the Regional Leadership Weekend at Young Life’s Timber Wolf Lake in Lake City, Michigan. This year, Michiana brought 17 leaders! This weekend is crucial to team building and vision casting. To have 17 attend from our area is miraculous and exciting. When asked what this weekend meant to our leaders, here are some of the responses they gave…
