Ada Bible Men’s Wilderness Trip, August 18-21

Men at Aubry FallsSometimes we just need to get away from the busyness of everyday life and clear out all the white noise. We need time to reflect, adventure, and connect with God and others. A Wilderness Journey is a kind of mission to recover something that has been lost—your heart.

Join a group of 10-15 men’s ministry leaders from Ada Bible Church for a transformational weekend in the Canadian wilderness. Taking place at a cabin on Tunnel Lake in the Mississagi River Valley of Ontario. This rustic setting provides a comfortable and beautiful place along the lakeshore to reflect on our stories, share great meals, enjoy the campfire, and take part in some adventure in the North woods. Leaving from Grand Rapids on the morning of Thursday, August 18, we will return on the evening of Sunday, August 21.
