FIRST: We want to cultivate authentic gospel community

between you and God and between each other

 SECOND: We want to really enjoy this gospel

community with God and each other.

 This weekend is about finding and enjoying abundant life in community and finding and enjoying rest for our souls (Ps 37:4; Matt 11:29). These are things we as men desperately need and have a hard time finding.



Early registration: (Ends Thursday, March 1)

Only $110

After March 1, $150

Don't let the cost deter you from attending. If you have an issue, please email Matt Avery.



All meals from Saturday breakfast through Sunday breakfast are covered in the registration cost. Breakfasts will be light and easy, lunch will be Moe's and dinner BBQ. We’ll end before lunch on Sunday, so Friday dinner and Sunday lunch, you’re on your own.



We will be staying in three buildings close to one another. Most rooms are doubles, but there are a few singles. On the registration form, indicate guys who you would prefer to room with (feel free to list a few names to help us with the rooming assignments) and/or whether you’d prefer a single room. We’ll do our best to make it happen.
