Men’s Weekend (Sept 13–15, 2019)
Grab some friends (or fly solo) and join us in the north woods at Trout Lake Camps – "a meeting place with God" since 1945. Step outside of the norm for a chance to dig deeper into your faith, connect with other guys and have a lot of fun. Breathe in the fresh air and see what God can do in just 40 hours. That scent in the air? Rest, renewal, rejuvenation (and grilled meat). More than a change of scenery, it's a change of spirit.
Registration opens May 15
The cost ranges between $115–$140 depending on housing.
Speaker: Steve Treichler
Steve is the Senior Pastor at Hope Community Church in Mpls MN. In 1992, Steve went to Bethel Theological Seminary, where he received his Masters of Divinity. During that time, Steve came up with the dream of starting a new church near the University of Minnesota, called Hope Community Church. This came to reality in the fall of 1996, and the rest, as they say, is history. The Treichler's (wife, Carole, and three sons) enjoy fishing, camping, bowling, Trout Lake Camps, reading, playing games, Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, and hanging out with their friends.
Worship: Matt Berry
Matt served as the worship pastor of Eagle Brook Church in Lino Lakes for more than a decade. Prior to that, he toured the country for four years as a recording artist and member of the band, Clear. Matt and his wife, Heather, have four children and live in White Bear Lake.
Choose to spend time with men from your church, friends from around the state, or alone with God. There is a space for you to do what you need in this “Meeting Place with God.”
The retreat begins at 5 pm on Friday evening. The first chapel session starts at 9 pm. At registration you will receive an information packet including a weekend schedule, list of recreation opportunities, seminar listings and church group locations.
The Saturday steak fry is an important part of Men’s Weekend and it is always a highlight. Grill your own steak to perfection and be the envy of every guy who burns his to a crisp. Come prepared for tasty home cooked food and plenty of it.
Seminars will be offered at 11 am on Saturday. Many of them will be repeated in the afternoon and these seminars offer an opportunity to discuss topics like marriage or discipleship in a small group setting.
