Power and Promise: How to Let the Gospel Transform Every Man’s Relationships

In this weekend of learning and conversation, we will explore concrete ways in which the undiluted Gospel of Jesus can positively transform every aspect of a man’s relationships, from parenting, to marriage, to facing one’s own death. If you want to understand the power of the Good News to radically transform your present well-being, you won’t want to miss this event.



Dr. Jeff Mallinson is Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Concordia University, Irvine, a 1517 Thinking Fellow, and Co-Host of the Virtue in the Wasteland podcast. He earned his doctorate from Oxford University. He is the author of "Sexy: The Quest for Erotic Virtue in Perplexing Times".



The Men's Retreat will meet at Forest Home Retreat Center in Forest Falls. We will stay in the hotel-type preferred lodging. Five meals are included with your registration including dinner on Friday night. The retreat will start at 6pm Friday and will end by 10:30am on Sunday morning.

The Men's Ministry sponsors a hot breakfast and a time for learning and fellowship once a month. It is held in the Fellowship Hall at the church. The breakfast begins at 7am and ends by 8:30am. Guest speakers are often invited. The breakfast is free so we welcome first-time visitors to join us! We serve a hot breakfast that consists of scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon/ham, and fruit. It's a great time for fellowship with others!


In October, our Men's Breakfast will be held on Saturday, October 27. Dr. Jeff Mallinson, our 2019 Men's Retreat peaker, will be our guest speaker.
