Guys, we experience a lot of demands in our lives.

That's why we do these Men's Retreats every year. We want to help men lead boldly with Christ as their foundation.

This year, we will be staying at Black Diamond Camps in Auburn, WA. Men have been saying that one night for the men's retreat is not enough, so this year we are moving to two nights! There are a ton of great activities there. Also, we'll have Jim Horsley, former Blue Angel, a Director at World Vision, and Chief Operating Officer at Pro Athletes Outreach, speaking to men about courage from his book, A Different Kind of Courage. Look forward to spending time with you at the retreat!

Israel

Israel Trip

February 17th - February 28th, 2018

You’ve Read the Book … Now Experience the Land !!!

with Charlie Salmon

February 17-28, 2018

  • Understand the scriptures through the eyes of Biblical culture.

  • Connect with the Land as you live the Biblical geography.

  • Walk through the beautiful nature reserve at Tel Dan

  • See a nearby mud-brick gate from the time of Abraham!

  • Go into the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed.

  • Explore the Old City of Jerusalem, including the Western (Wailing) Wall, and the original steps where Jesus would have entered the Temple.

  • Experience all the sights, sounds and smells of different cultures, both Jewish and Arab.

  • Learn to view today’s news as “God’s hand at work in the affairs of men”.

  • Sense a greater awareness of God’s Presence in your life.

You’ve read about so many of the places you will visit. Think of what a thrill it would be to experience them for yourself! Every step you take will expand your understanding of the scriptures. Names like Mt. Carmel, Nazareth, and Capernaum will no longer be vague spots on a Biblical map, but would trigger vivid memories. Seeing the Lebanese, Syrian and Jordanian borders, will make you much more aware of daily issues. And then there are the people, being gathered from nations all over the world … searching for Something that will bring them peace, but looking in all the wrong places. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry; you’ll play and you’ll pray. Most of all, you’ll worship the One who is the Prince of Peace.

What’s keeping you from enjoying these unique experiences?

  1. The #1 reason mentioned is safety. Distorted information presented by the media makes it sound like Israel is a very dangerous place. However, if you talk to people who have visited there recently, the most frequent comment is, “I never felt so safe!” Although Israel is smaller than New Jersey, they have over three million tourists every year! The hyped news stories come and go, but tourists are flocking to Israel!

  2. The #2 reason is cost. But it’s all a matter of values. People spend money on what’s important to them. That could be bigger/fancier cars; or the latest in electronics; or exotic vacations. A trip to Israel has much more lasting value than any of these. It is a spiritual investment. And since air and land prices increase about 5% per year, the best time to go is this year!

  3. The #3 reason is a desire to visit Israel, but thinking in terms of doing it “later”. Many older visitors have said, “This trip was wonderful, but I wish I had done it years ago. I’ve learned so much that would have been useful in my spiritual development … and there is so much I could have shared with others.” Do it now if at all possible!
