2019 Father/Son Retreat

Join us for this special weekend just for men and boys!  October 11-13, 2019 will be the dates of our retreat this year.  This weekend will include four chapel sessions, five delicious hot meals and a weekend full of exciting activities for all who attend.  We'll be offering Boating and Fishing down at the pond, Trap Shooting, Archery, Shooting Gallery (BB guns and slingshots), Hiking, Go Karts, Gun Range (for all calibers), Mini Golf and so much more! We'd love for you to attend this weekend focused on building strong relationships between dads and sons as we receive instruction from God's Word!

The retreat begins Friday evening with registration opening at 5 PM and supper beginning at 7 PM.  Friday night will also include a chapel session and S'mores near your cabins.  Saturday morning usually starts with coffee available at the dining hall for early risers.  The morning officially kicks off with a hearty breakfast followed by a chapel session.  The morning concludes with some special father/son activities.  Lunch is served, then we dismiss for afternoon free time.  During this time you pick your own schedule of activities from those offered over the weekend.  Maybe you'd like to head out on a hike, go fishing, test your marksmanship or just go fly a kite.  Following that free time we gather around the table once again for supper.  Saturday ends with chapel, some evening free time and a praise and testimony campfire!  Get some good rest on Saturday night because Sunday morning will be time for Breakfast, Chapel and a ride home.

"Be Bold"

with Carl Kerby

from "REasons for HOpe"

Carl Kerby’s passion is to proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible and to engage the minds and hearts of believers and unbelievers so that they may experience the realities of the Word of God. Whether Carl speaks to youth or adults, large or small crowds, at churches or schools, he has a way of connecting and engaging with everyone.  From all ages, all walks of life and wherever they are on their faith journey, Carl reaches people with biblical truths, providing knowledge and reasons why we can trust God and His Word.  As a founding Board Member of Answers in Genesis (AiG), Carl served there for more than 15 years before co-founding the apologetics ministry, Reasons for Hope (rforh).

Carl has had many roles in his life: son of a professional wrestler, air-traffic controller at O’Hare International Airport, founding board member and speaker for AiG; but his most cherished roles are as a husband, father and grandfather!

Come and see the deBunked bus otherwise known as "deBus."  Learn how this old VW bus has helped in breaking down barriers to share the gospel and declare "Unapologetic Apologetics."  
Space is limited, so register as soon as you can for this event.  

Registration will close when we run out of space or by October 2nd: whichever comes first!
