Delegates were invited to respond to three questions/topics in their table groups: 1. What do you think collaboration should look like for OCMBC? 2. In what ways can you be more open to receiving accountability from others? How can we be more open to receiving accountability from each other? 3. Share stories of how you have seen God at work in one another and in other churches/ministries over the course of the weekend.
