Potomac Pathfinders second Director’s Meeting

Moving Forward

We are grateful for the presentations that were made by each of the club directors.  Each demonstrated why Potomac Pathfinders is an effective and essential ministry at every level in Potomac Conference.  Our meeting was very productive, and we learned that we are all stronger when we press together, share information, and prayerfully seek God’s direction at every step in this ministry.  We learned that we have all found the Covid-19 environment very challenging to adjust to. We also learned:

  • that personalizing our approach to staff gives them the encouragement they need to move forward with us.
  • Making personal connections with our pathfinders increases they desire to continue because they have an increase sence of belonging.
  • This new environment constantly forces us to re-focus on the original intent of our club ministry.
  • We can maintain the health and safety of our club members and staff as we explore new creative ways to meet our required elements in the Pathfinder program.

As they become available, I will post the materials each presenter has shared as a resource to use in your ministry.

 

Agradecemos las presentaciones realizadas por cada uno de los directores del club. Cada uno demostró por qué Potomac Conquestadores es un ministerio eficaz y esencial en todos los niveles de la Conferencia Potomac. Nuestra reunión fue muy productiva, y aprendimos que todos somos más fuertes cuando nos unimos, compartimos información y buscamos en oración la dirección de Dios en cada paso de este ministerio. Aprendimos que a todos nos ha parecido muy difícil adaptarse al entorno Covid-19. También aprendimos:

  • que personalizar nuestro enfoque hacia el personal les da el aliento que necesitan para seguir adelante con nosotros.
  • Hacer conexiones personales con nuestros pioneros aumenta su deseo de continuar porque tienen un mayor sentido de pertenencia.
  • Este nuevo entorno nos obliga constantemente a reenfocarnos en la intención original del ministerio de nuestro club.
  • Podemos mantener la salud y la seguridad de los miembros y el personal de nuestro club a medida que exploramos nuevas formas creativas de cumplir con nuestros elementos requeridos en el programa Conquestadores.

A medida que estén disponibles, publicaré los materiales que cada presentador ha compartido como recurso para usar en su ministerio.
