November 30 – December 2

R.E.A.L. Man Retreat (8th and 9th Grade Boys)

What is R.E.A.L. Man?

R.E.A.L. Man gives 8th and 9th grade boys and their fathers an understanding of what it means to be a REAL man—not merely an adult male. During four consecutive sessions, we will review the biblical definition of manhood in a fun and casual group setting, which will culminate with a powerful, Christ-centered, rite-of-passage weekend retreat.

R = rejecting passivity
E = living for eternity
A = accepting responsibility
L = leading courageously
