Jesus talked about it and practiced it, but are we doing a good job of it in our churches and personal life? What lessons can we learn from the absolute master of hospitality – Disneyland! Come and find out as we learn what it means from Disney to offer hospitality and how we can apply those lessons into our own context. Plus, we will have a lot of fun.
This coming February, we will be headed to Disneyland for our seventh Faith and Family Trip! I hope as many of you can join us as possible. Details are still being hammered out, but we hope to do it a bit differently than in the past by making it all inclusive (transportation, food, tickets, t-shirts, etc.).
Our tentative plans are to head up on Saturday, have dinner together, and then free time until Sunday morning! We will all meet up early (7:30am-ish) to take advantage of being there at opening. We will gather outside the park, pray together, go over the itinerary once more so everyone knows what’s going on, and then head in to Disneyland! We’ll go on some rides in the morning, have lunch together, take a tour emphasizing our theme of hospitality by a former cast member – me! And then have a snack and do a fun group activity together for prizes. In the past, we’ve done a cool scavenger hunt throughout the park in teams and the winning team would get a nice prize. After that it’s dinner and free time and maybe I’ll even plan some surprise for the evening (but your choice if you want to participate).
It will be FUN! And hopefully you’ll walk away with a different perspective on church. My hope is to integrate best practices in business and apply them to how we can be more effective for Christ. I’ve led this trip six times before and each time has been a blast. We focus on a theme and explore it together. In the past we’ve done happiness, failure, and change and this trip will be focused on hospitality! Or more how we can use our own radical hospitality to reshape how others see us.
We hope to see you there! Bookmark this page for updates and join our mailing list! Contact me for questions or more information.
