2017 Men’s Retreat

Imagine watching the sun set over Lake Michigan as crisp Fall air begins to settle in…

Imagine gathering together with dozens of other men to learn about God’s Word in an engaging, thought-provoking way…

Imagine golfing in the beautiful countryside of western Michigan…

If that sounds even remotely interesting, read on…

You are invited to participate in the 2017 Men’s Retreat at Gordon Beach Inn in southwest Michigan (Google Map)! It will be an invigorating opportunity for fellowship and spiritual growth, including time on beautiful Lake Michigan and out on the golf course, for those who desire it!


This year, we will be encouraged and challenged to grow in our lives of faith as men by Dr. Scott Keith, executive director of 1517 The Legacy Project (click here to learn more about him!), who will be speaking on the topic: “The Most Masculine Man in the Bible.”

Dr. Scott Keith is also a co-host of The Thinking Fellows Podcast and a Contributor to The Jagged Word, 1517 The Legacy Project, and Christ Hold Fast blogs. Dr. Keith is the author of Being Dad: Father as a Picture of God’s Grace.
