2017 District Men's Retreat
      November 3-5, 2017

Ridgecrest Conference Center, Ridgecrest, North Carolina
Living Between Sundays


The Men’s Retreat will occur on November 3-5, 2017, at the Lifeway Conference Center in Ridgecrest, NC. The theme this year will be Between Sundays. The gospel, the good news of Jesus, is for all of life. It should permeate all of our activities, and Sundays (in part) should be a celebration of what God has been doing in us during the week.

The weekend emphasis will be on what takes place in our lives when we are not in the worship service. The worship service is essential, but most of our lives are lived outside of the walls of the church. We want to think about how the good news of Jesus impacts our regular lives. It is, after all, an everyday gospel for our everyday lives.


The messages will be from 1 Corinthians 1 and 2. On Friday evening, Jason Malone from the Summit Church in upstate South Carolina will address the what the gospel is. On Saturday evening, Bill Jewell (District office) will speak on who the gospel is about. On Sunday morning, Jeff Philpott from Sandhills Community Church in Columbia, SC, will talk about how the gospel is spread.   


On Saturday morning, we will have a roundtable of sorts. Kris Gerow (District Missions Mobilizer) will talk about missions mobilization. Pete Brokopp (from Envision Atlanta) will present the opportunities that are available at Envision Atlanta.  Reggie Screen will give an overview of the Disciple Making projects in the district. Dan Rothra will be presenting how to conduct simple Bible reading and prayer with two or three men.

After the general presentations, we will offer some breakout sessions that center on how we serve God’s people between Sundays. After the registrations are complete we will send out a form for signing up so that we know how many to expect in the breakouts.

The breakouts are:

Freeing God’s Word: How to Serve (Paul Atkinson)
Shepherding God’s People: How to Serve as an elder (Reginald Screen)
Becoming God’s Man: What Young Men Need to Know (Ben Landes)
Sharing God’s Word: Local Church Missions Mobilizer (Kris Gerow) 


Saturday afternoon is free, but there will be some friendly organized competition. Josh Norris (Crossview Alliance Church) will be heading this up. When the particular events are set, they will be posted on the website.
