Spring Men’s Retreat

May 19 - May 21
Spring Men's Retreat at Shoshone

Choose Your Own Adventure!

No other weekend like it: bunch o’guys…weekend away in the mountains… bacon…Jesus! It doesn’t get any better!

New for 2017!

This year’s men’s retreat has a special emphasis on bringing generations of guys together: dads and sons, grampas and grandsons, uncles and nephews, big brothers with younger bros! Or how about a trifecta: grampa, sons, and grandsons!

Our speaker, Dick Hardel, is a nationally recognized leader in inter-generational ministry, and will speak to faith formation from generation to generation. “Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.” Psalm 90:1

Don’t forget! We have special reduced rates for young men aged 12-18.

Play all weekend, or serve at camp part of the weekend, play the rest!
