Friday night/Saturday retreats or full weekend retreats are an excellent way to accomplish the two goals of men's ministry—helping men build deeper connects to disciplie one-another, and provide them practical biblical teaching related to their goals and struggles as men. Gary is a frequent men's retreat speaker and loves the venue for being with men. He always includes discussion questions with his messages to help men deepen their connections with one another. He can direct his talks according to the following retreat packages or can mix and match topics according to the needs of your men. He will also work closely with your church to capture the momentum of the retreat through a strategic follow-up plan.
