    We are in year 7 and you are spot on. We have seen a great group of leaders graduate but are now having to recast our vision and restructure some things. It almost feels like starting over! Prayers are greatly appreciated.

    • I know the feeling @heath_haney:disqus . It’s healthy to do so though. And this time you know what you’re doing…well almost right? 😉
