Men’s Weekend (Sept 16–18, 2022)
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.
The cost ranges between $135–$160 depending on housing.
Registration opens May 1
Speaker: Ray Romprey
After a very difficult growing up experience, Ray met Jesus in 2006 and his life has been transformed. Ray and his wife Mila have been married 16 years and have four children. They planted a church six years ago in Hayward, CA called House of Faith. Today, Ray is no longer a prisoner bound by chains but a pastor set free by the Grace of God.
Worship: Matt Berry
Matt has served as a worship pastor in the Twin Cities 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, and their children 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, 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.
