On Tuesday, February 23, the Joel Comiskey Group board will meet together in Myrtle Beach, SC for a day of prayer and relational interaction. Each member will answer the following questions on a personal and ministerial level:
1. What point of celebration would you like to share with the group?
2. What was tough for you since our time together last year?
We then eat together. This has been our tradition since 2003 when we met for the first time. We believe that relational connection comes before the tasks of JCG.
On Thursday, February 25, we will meet again to reflect on whether weâ€™ve accomplished our goals for the past year and then envision the future for JCG for the upcoming year.
Sandwiched in between the board meetings is the Day with Joel Comiskey and Mario Vega (February 24). Even though we call it â€œDay with Joel and Marioâ€ the entire JCG team participates. I’m excited and hopeful about what God is going to do on that day.
Would you please pray that the JCG board (i.e., Joel and Celyce Comiskey, Steve Cordle, Rob Campbell, Mario Vega, and Jeff Tunnell) would experience unity of mind and vision. Pray that God would give us direction on specific issues for the future (e.g., we will talk about bringing on the first JCG missionary and what that would look like). Pray for God’s anointing on the Day with Joel and Mario, and that we could really meet the needs of those present. We will not be blogging this next week because of these events.
p.s.: Some have wondered why we meet each year in the Hampton Inn in Myrtle Beach, SC. The reason is because Buddy Lindsay, one of the original JCG board members and tax lawyer, is also the co-owner of this hotel (we get a great deal). Buddy first suggested the idea of organizing JCG into a non-profit organization and was instrumental in making it happen.
