DAY 92 (52 Days)

TRAINING: "THE GTD WAY"!! Today and over the past few weeks we have been concentrating on training our new staff and volunteers about "The GTD Way". It's how we run camps and outdoor ministry. It's what makes us unique. It's what distinguishes us from other great camps. In essence it is our identity. Here is a snippet from our training manual:

'Before we set up an activity we need to take a moment to recognize what we want our participants to experience at a GTD Event. What makes GTD different? What makes us unique? Anyone can set up tents, chairs and a bunch of random activities, but we are not just building a temporary experience, we are constructing a lifelong memory. We’re not just erecting a makeshift game, we are directing an outdoor symphony of God-awesome excitement. This isn’t splattered paint on a piece of canvas; it’s a work of art. This isn't a hodgepodge recipe of leftover ingredients thrown into a bowl to make goulash. We are outdoor, fun loving, Jesus focused culinary chefs creating a savory, eternal, deliberate dessert that no one will ever forget. And it will cause our participants to leave both satisfied and craving more. This is not just another activity, it’s an event where souls are saved, hearts are recommitted, burdens are released, fears are overcome, friendships are born, relationships are restored, visions are received, new beginnings are produced, hope is revived, spiritual gifts are utilized, laughter is seized, and fun is relished! This is a GTD Event and it’s done The GTD Way."

We hope that you will join us on a God-awesome event and/or consider becoming a GTD volunteer. It's an exciting time to be a part of GTD!
