Last week the rest of the Goers from the class of 2023 traveled to Minnesota to spend a week with our staff doing fundraising training, leadership and team development, spiritual formation and hanging out in the beautiful fall weather in Minnesota.

What a great week it was!  GoCorps staff came from Texas, Minneapolis and Michigan, and our sending organization staff came from all over, and together, with the Goers, we had a great week meeting each other and meeting with God!

Here's a quick overview of the Goers from GoWeek 2:

What a great week!  One big highlight:  During their time at GoWeek, we challenged the Goers with the goal of each getting 15+ fundraising appointments set up for the first two weeks when they flew home.  These Goers crushed it, getting an averge of 19 appointments each... the most ever by any GoWeek!

We can't wait to see God provide for each of these Goers as they dive into their fundraising this week!
