Listen to the teaching from the 2017 Four Oaks Men's Retreat


There are 2 ways of living: the way that leads to life and blessing and the way that leads to death and destruction. As men, God invites us to walk in the way of the righteous. But what does this way really look like, particularly in our current culture where it seems like godliness and blessing don’t go together?

In our 3 sessions taught by our pastors, we will look at “The Blessed Man” in Psalm 1. Specifically, we will explore the following topics:

  • The Man Who Meditates
  • The Man Who Resists Temptation
  • The Man Who Flourishes

ACTIVITIEs

On Saturday afternoon, men will have the opportunity to participate in 2 activity sessions, each lasting around 2 hours. When you register, choose 2 of the 4 awesome activities listed below!

  • Riverboat Cruise & Snorkeling: Take a ride on the riverboat and stop along the way to go snorkeling in the Suwannee River.
  • Kayaking: Explore the Suwannee River on one of our 2-person kayaks.
  • Paintball: Grab a paintball gun and head out to our course for a paintball battle.
  • Marksmanship: Bring your own guns and supplies to enjoy a friendly competition, including target practice and skeet shooting.

You can also check out the videos at www.campanderson.org/activities to better understand what you’re getting into!
