A man needs an adventure. A journey that will shape him and challenge him. A man needs his fellow man. To travel with him, to push him, to encourage him. He needs time to get away. To be renewed. To spend time thinking about important things, things that he can pass on to the next generation. A man needs fun. He needs to eat well. To slow down and ask himself - what makes a man?

Man Camp is a weekend experience where men of all ages can find that time and space. To be challenged - spiritually and physically. Time to be equipped to lead at home. At church. At work. Man Camp offers men the chance to experience brotherhood, and learn what God expects of us as men. 

Through their time in God's Word, and in purposeful activities, Man Camp is a tool to help men find their path, to sharpen each other, and to be filled - both in body and in soul. Man Camp will also feature an Impact Track - which will geared toward fathers and sons. 

Stephen Mansfield, best selling author and speaker, will discuss the standard God has set for Biblical manhood and provide practical ways that men can develop the character traits needed to be better husbands, fathers, co-workers, and mostly important followers of Christ. 

Join us on the journey...Man Camp. Sept. 23-30, 2018
