30th Annual Student Leadership Conference at Leoni Meadows
Student leaders from academies across the Pacific Union gathered the last weekend of September for the 30th annual Student Leadership Conference at Leoni Meadows Camp in Grizzly Flats, California. The group of over 200 students spent three days focused on team-building, fellowshipping with students from other schools, and learning about servant leadership from guest speaker Aren Rennacker, youth pastor at the Calimesa Seventh-day Adventist Church. Rennacker spent the weekend sharing with young people how impactful leadership comes out of the overflow of a relationship with God. “When you are given the opportunity of authority or greater power, the response Jesus calls us to is to serve those with less power,” he said. “Servant leadership must come out of first abiding with God and being filled with God so that we then can overflow out into serving others.” To Rennacker, what matters most is the relationships leaders can develop, and he encouraged the young people to start with their relationship with God.
