Looks very good!
 
Here's some suggestions:  I did them in red in your resume
 
1) First time you mention "The Master's College" you need to have right behind it (TMC).  That way they'll know what TMC stands for.
2) Change "Planned very successful Core Weekend for building unity among" to something like "Planned and ran very successful Core Weekend for building unity among"
3) Look at resume for rest
