Men’s Retreat

Had a great time at the Men’s Retreat in Zion National Park.  If your church does a men’s retreat, here are a few learnings:

1. Provide free time
2. Have a guest speaker that rocks
3. Don’t freak out if a few things go wrong.  God works in those moments.
4. Don’t be afraid to bring the Truth hard.  That’s what these guys came for.
5. Spend as much time as possible with men you do not know.
6. Don’t overspiritualize everthing.
7. Follow up!  Provide opportunities for men to serve or get in groups.

Here are a few photos I took at the retreat.  I used a Canon Rebel XT and Photoshop for resizing and levels.

  1. Joshua, you definitely hit the nail on the head, and I couldn’t agree with you more.
