Burlyman Retreat 2019

Burlyman Retreat 2019

What do work, family and friendship all have in common? Christ as the center. Spend the weekend with friends reflecting on how to abide in Christ as we live out some of the key roles in the lives of men. The weekend will include teaching, testimony, rest, play, and great food and connection with other men. Retreat is for men who are 18 or older. The youngers are welcome too if accompanied by a chaperone.
