Our most recent Volunteer Information & Training Night @ KGF was such an encouraging night, as relationships among team members were strengthened, vision was clarified, and new volunteers stepped out. Tony Markoff was one of the more than 120 who joined us for the evening, and we asked him to give some reflections on the evening.
Arriving at the KGF parking lot Monday March 3rd at 6:45 pm was an exhilarating event. Why? The parking lot was full of vehicles, representing so many whom came to serve our church and our God.
In the lobby I was greeted by so many smiling eager faces and in the sanctuary attentive listeners to Pastor Mike's message. I really felt that a force so much larger than is humanly possible was a work at KGF
I was very moved by Pastor Mike's vision of a church moving forward with a vision to the future (as opposed to one continually looking into the "rear view mirror") and all of the possibilities and opportunities it presents for us. Giving is much more rewarding than receiving, and it was so evident at the Volunteer Training Night by all the staff and volunteer team leaders.
I look forward to 2014 at KGF with a renewed energy and passion!
