“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.” – Muhammad Ali

I was 26 years old. My wife and I had only been married a short time, but it was enough time to have grown apart.  A failed change in careers, no college degree, and very few friends let the dark blanket of depression cover me.  I knew Jesus but allowed my circumstances to keep me at arms-length, and even used them to blame God at times.  Something needed to change…but it felt impossible.

A few weeks later some guys from my church invited me to men’s weekend.  The last thing I wanted was to spend a weekend with guys who seemed to always have the answer & were more ‘spiritually mature’ than me.  It sounded boring, dull, and dumb.  The weekend was nothing like I imagined!  We spent the whole weekend hiking, laughing, playing poker, and building lasting friendships.  I discovered something I desperately needed – brothers.  Men who would challenge me to grow in faith, to step-up as a husband and eventual father, and to claim God’s truth that through Him ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

Maybe you are experiencing something similar or have a friend, father, or son who is.  Perhaps you have attended dozens of men’s retreats & conferences in the past but really don’t know any men sitting in church with you. This November 2 -4 we launch a NEW kind of men’s event: Man Camp.

The heart behind Man Camp is to gather men of EVERY age for an incredible, FUN, relaxed weekend focused on camaraderie through games & friendly competitions.  We will intentionally have plenty of time for guys to hike, fish, target practice, or just hangout! And on Saturday we’ll have next-level Worship experiences led by Pastor Zach Bloom along with special guest Pastor Tom Moffett.  Tom is a dynamic speaker, father, mentor, leader, and will bring his ex-NFL experience to breathe life & confidence into the hearts of men!!

I truly hope you will join me this November for a life-changing weekend full of POSSIBILITIES!
