About the Event
Men’s Retreat: Real Men. Real Issues. Real Faith.
Does your job drain your soul? Do you go to work begrudgingly? Do you struggling connecting what you hear on Sunday with your work on Monday? Are you simply collecting a paycheck? Have you ever wondered whether your work really matters to God?
Rev. Dr. Jason Wellman is our guest speaker for our special men’s retreat. During the men’s retreat we will discover what the Bible says about work and will learn how our vocation can be integrated with our faith. During the retreat you will be given practical tools to help see your work in light of God’s ongoing creative work in the world, as well as ways to reflect on the nature of your career and how to better steward your work. Whether retired or actively working, this retreat is for you.
Rev. Todd Richards will be our guest worship leader for the retreat which will culminate in a powerful vocational blessing at the close of the day.
