KBC Retreat Recap


Maple Trail President Shane Garrison presented two breakout sessions at the annual Kentucky Baptist Convention Deacon-Pastor-Spouse Retreat with the theme “Equipping Servant Leaders.”  Over 200 were in attendance at the Griffin Gate Marriott Hotel and Resort in Lexington, KY.

Garrison’s first session “For the Rookies” had 15 participants.  New deacons from churches in Bardstown, Elizabethtown, and Clinton County among those present.  The session spoke to the first year needs of newly ordained deacons and guided them in how to set a standard of service for their church.

Garrison’s second session “Stop, Drop, and Roll: Deacons Dealing with Conflict” was packed.  The conference room was filled with nearly 60 participants.  Taking the illustration of a spark in a forest, deacons were encouraged to STOP the conflict appropriately, DROP the chatter quickly, and ROLL to more help if needed.
