2019 Men’s Retreat
March 22-23 at Geneva Retreat Center in Holland, MI
You have the opportunity to be encouraged by the teaching of Pastor and author Richard Phillips. He will be highlighting his book, The Mascline Mandate. This 1-night intergenerational Christian men’s retreat is filled with “guy stuff”.
The prices for 2019 Men’s Retreat are $65 for Adults and $55 for Students (price goes up by $10 on March 4). For those who are willing and able, there is also an option to contribute $25 for scholarships. The last day for registration is Sunday March 14th. If you are paying by cash or check, please contact Justin Kaake or Steve Roskos. Payment must be made before the registration deadline. If you need a partial scholarship, please contact Justin Kaake or Steve Roskos ASAP. We are looking for guys that will volunteer to do some small tasks while at the retreat and share a short testimony. Please contact Justin Kaake if you would be willing to volunteer in either of these areas.
We sleep in nice cabins that have showers, bathrooms, heat, carpet, lighting… everything. There are around six pairs of bunks beds in each room, so there are several guys in the room. There may be a few hotel style rooms available for an extra fee, but we won't know until the date is closer. Please contact Justin Kaake if you have any interest in them. They are based on first come first serve. As well, if there are and special requests or needs, please let us know.
The food is buffet style and there is always more than enough. If you have any food allergies or food request the camp can sometimes accommodate them. Please let Justin Kaake know ASAP if there is something that I need to request and I will be happy to do that.

As we get closer to the retreat date I will assist in arranging groups of people to ride with each other. It is a good opportunity for guys to get to know each other as they drive to and from the retreat. As well, many of the college students don’t have transportation so it helps them out. If you can give a ride to anyone, there is a place on the registration that allows you to select how many guys you can bring.
