In a culture in which God’s Word and biblical manhood are often under attack, it has never become more necessary than now for men to strengthen and encourage one another towards spiritual growth. “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” (Proverbs 27:17). In response to this need, we are very excited to host our annual Men’s Retreat.
Our chapel sessions will be focused on what it means to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God (1 Peter 5:1-11) and why we must embrace humility as a posture of heart before God, as well as a lifestyle of relationship with others.
There will also be a break in the schedule giving you the opportunity to choose between a trail ride, shooting sports, paintball, or relaxing and meditating on what God is teaching you through His Word.
