take a learning trip (with more than yourself)

Have you considered taking a learning trip or “learning retreat” with your student leaders?

It’s on my mind because as you read this, I’m headed to Memphis with my church staff team to do that very thing. We’re excited to learn from church folks, parachurch folks, and secular non-profits, along with a few of us attending the MLK50 conference.

It’s been a bear to schedule learning opportunities for an entire team, but it’s oh so worth it: Learning from different contexts can help any ministry take leaps – and make tweaks – like few other learning experiences can. We’ll be better for it. So would you.

So what about it? What would your ideal College Ministry-Learning Trip consist of? And whom could you take?
