Things to keep in mind:
o   First and foremost: We are here as representatives of our youth groups, congregations, the Oregon Synod, and the whole Body of Christ. We should act in a way that reflects that, by
o   respecting other hotel guests
o   respecting the process and activities that will take place this weekend
o   respecting hotel property, and that of others
o   participating with your best efforts
o   keeping a positive attitude (attitude is everything!)
o   Be flexible
o   When leaving the hotel, stay in groups of 3 or more
o   Rooms: We have plenty of space to hang out, so it probably isn’t necessary to hang out in guest rooms. However, if it’s necessary to be in a room other than your own, groups of 3.
o   Be IN YOUR ROOM after devotions, if you need snacks, sodas, etc, do it before Midnight
o   Basically it’s about common sense, you’re here as a leader, and by being here (and signing the covenant) you agree to be held to a higher standard.
o   If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask! (Lisa’s Cell: 503-481-7966)

Leadership Training School

Technically this is an Oregon Synod Event, but many of the folks you've seen and met at OLYO events will be there! So we thought we'd make the info available!!

These links will get you the documents you want!:
Registration Forms
Informational Flyer (same info as printed below)

Youth who are entering or leaving grades 9-12 are  invited to the Oregon Synod’s Leadership Training School at Menucha Retreat and Conference Center in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
June 22-24th
Menucha Retreat Center
38711 E Historic Columbia River Hwy
Corbett, OR

Cost $100
We’ll spend 3 days and 2 nights as a community, living, exploring, discussing, cooking, eating, and celebrating together.
Questions we’ll be focusing on:
· How do I find my strengths? How do I use them?
· What does it really mean to be a leader?
· Do you hear me? (Why effective communication is more than what you say.)
· How can young people serve as leaders in environments that are made up mostly of adults?
We’ll also spend time in conversation about what it means to be a young person of faith in Oregon, and the challenges and opportunities for young people in the Oregon Synod.

Return the registration form to Lisa Gray by June 15th.
Forms may be mailed or emailed :
190 SW 3rd Ave, Canby, OR 97013
