a story retreat for men



The spiritual life cannot be made suburban. It is always frontier,

and we who live in it must accept and even rejoice that it remains untamed.

– Howard Macey


Every man’s heart is hardwired to connect with God, seek adventure alongside a band of brothers, and move through life alive to his desire. You were created to partner with God and others to impact the world. You have an original story, and it’s has been highjacked, or better yet, it’s gone into hiding.  Too often we forsake this story and give ourselves over to the daily grind. Struggles and stresses keep us down, and we lose sight of the larger story we are called to live into.  The hard knocks of life have sent us messages about who we are and what we are made of.  The enemy of our souls sows a lie into us to convince us that God isn’t good, and that we are better off alone.  We begin to write our own story… a story of striving and grasping, and always trying to measure up.


At RETELLING YOUR STORY we hike, adventure, eat great food, and enjoy the campfire.  But the real meat of the weekend is a chance to unpack your story, see the places where evil has tried to keep you down, and allow God and some good guys to walk with you.  We want to give you a chance to retell your story in the light of the gospel story, as you recover the original design and begin to walk with God into a redemptive future. We go to the wilderness to explore the things that make our hearts come alive.  We go to be encouraged as we seek to live into all that God has for us
