A total of 192 Officers, made up of 62 new Officers in the midst of completing their BOTC and 130 regular Officers gathered at Mutiara Hotel, Johor Bahru on 18 October for a refreshing two-day retreat.
Mr David Chan, our Vice-President, Development gave an update on how the Brigade may be moving towards to co-create the BB’s Future Story. The Officers talked about the major themes the Brigade should stay focused on.
Officers were treated to a time of spiritual rejuvenation after lunch by Bishop Terry Kee, Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Singapore during the keynote message.
The BOTC participants were given a chance to “attack” one another in a game of paint ball along with other Officers while the rest made their way to ‘Just Want Coffee’ for an educational coffee tour.
The first night ended with an inspiring session with Mr Jason Wong, Chairman, Focus on the Family Singapore and Executive Director, Honour Singapore reiterating the importance of a father’s role in the lives of the children and how the BB can move alongside in this.
Mr Darius Lee, Founder of In But Not Of the World (IBNO) Conference and Mr Goh Boon Siong, Centre Manager of Youth Guidance Outreach Services (YGOS) took the stage to introduce ways of engaging and mentoring the hearts of the younger generations.
This year’s Annual Officers’ Summit was a “pit-stop” for the Officers to reflect and recharge themselves!
Thank you, Officers and we hope to see you next year!
