GABC Men’s Retreat 2018 – BIBLICAL MANHOOD


Many of you have been asking us for more information about our Men’s Retreat that is coming up….here ya go!


Why are we even doing this? As a staff, we believe that the men within a church play such a key role in God’s plan.  Not only His plan for the church, but His plan for every family, His plan for evangelism, His plan for the world as a whole!  It’s tough being a Christian these days…the church needs strong men to step and say “Here Am I Lord.  Send me.” We need men to lead the charge. To take the torch and forge ahead. To bear the burdens of those weaker than themselves.  To stand for what’s right.  To love and to mentor.  It’s time to start pouring into ourselves, men.  It’s time to step up even more!


We thought we’d try to spark some of this within ourselves and within some of you by setting aside a weekend to devote to seeking God and His plans together.  Here is a glimpse of what the retreat will entail:


Who is it For?      Men over the age of 18

This is about a 2 hour drive from GABC.  No transportation will be provided….so find some buddies and carpool for the weekend!


Transportation:         You are in charge of your own transportation!  Carpool is wise!

Any Snacks you might want in between the provided meals.

OK!  That should be a good summary to get your brain started!  Listen fellas…we truly believe that this weekend could change your life and change the life of our church for the better.  Sometimes, getting a little bit out of our comfort zone and letting God have His way is exactly the shove we need.  Would you prayerfully consider joining us for this weekend??  It’s gonna be a great time!  Please shoot us an email if you have any questions at all!
