 Let the Men Arise!

This is a call to the men of San Luis Obispo County to come away together, be refreshed, encouraged, filled anew with the power of God, and then rededicate themselves to answer the call of our time. Men of God arise and let God form in you a heart that is completely committed to Him. For the eyes of The Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose heart are fully committed to Him” 2 Chronicles 16:9 Men, It is our time to arise and be what God has called us to be: spiritual warriors, clothed in the armor of God, exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit, overwhelmed by the grace of God, and sharing that grace in the communities where we live. This retreat is designed to call men to a new passion for God, to set their souls on fire with His overwhelming grace, so that together with other men, working shoulder to shoulder we can shake the world for Jesus Christ. Men of God, come join us!

Deadline has been extended to October 6, 2014
