Bill Brunnemer - Team Leader

Team Training Meetings
It is extremely important that team members make every effort to attend ALL Meetings leading up to the Kairos Weekend! Volunteering in Kairos is a serious commitment. Please pray about it FIRST and check your calendar BEFORE you commit to serving on the Team.  Of course, conflicts do arise unexpectedly but if you KNOW you cannot make the team meetings and/or you are not POSITIVE you can be there for the ENTIRE Weekend, please consider serving on a later Weekend when you do not have any conflicts. The formation and unity of the team PRIOR to entering the institution is essential to the success of the ministry.
