    Men's Retreat: Ignite
    March 15–17

    Join us for the 2019 Mountain Men's Retreat - Ignite the Kingdom life (or fire) within you! We all need time to retreat from our day-to-day routine to be refreshed, to relax our brains, to give them "space" to open up to receive new input. To join With our Brothers. To be Ignited all over again. We all need to retreat to find that recharge, new momentum, new life. Retreat to be away With God to spend time listening for who we were created to be. We all need a retreat, not only us but for those around us. So that we may be Ignited to be fully present With our family and friends. Come, spend a weekend away With God, With your brothers, and With us on retreat and be IGNITED!

    “I’m baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a kingdom life. The real action comes next: The main character in this drama—compared to him I’m a mere stagehand—will ignite the kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house—make a clean sweep of your lives. He’ll place everything true in its proper place before God; everything false he’ll put out with the trash to be burned.”
    Matthew 3:11-12 (MSG)
