Hosted by FBC Norman and led by CBF’s Harry Rowland and Josh Speight, the 2014 Dawnings Retreat was a glowing success!
CBF OK, FBC Norman, St. John Missionary Baptist Church (OKC), Tulledega Hills Baptist Church (Henryetta), and the Native American Baptist churches of Canton, Watonga, and Hobart all sent representatives. Unlike some traditional strategic planning curriculum, the Dawnings material is exploratory. Participants pray the scriptures, use journaling and creative colloquy, have sessions of group discernment and feel the rhythm of discerning, visioning, forming, engaging and embracing in hopes of finding God and creating a mission shaped church rather than a church shaped mission.
