On June 7-8 in Bogotá, Colombia, about 50 GCI members, including several pastors from Latin America, gathered for an Odyssey in Christ (OIC) retreat called “Experiencing the Presence of God in Life and in Ministry” (see the pictures below). Participants were led by OIC director Larry Hinkle in various spiritual formation exercises. There was much joy expressed for this opportunity to know more deeply the Triune God and one another. As a result of the retreat, 12 Latin American leaders committed to meeting every two weeks for a course in Trinitarian theology led by Hector and Paulina Barrero. During the course, Larry Hinkle will provide teaching on spiritual formation.
