Fall 2013 - Out of the Darkness... Into the Light... Together!

October 25 - 27

Mens Retreat Poster

This year’s Men’s Adventure Retreat (Friday evening October 25 – Sunday afternoon October 27) will be focused on men coming together to leave the darkness of sexual sin behind and pursue sexual purity with a life that desires God above all else. Men, you can’t do this by yourselves!

Dave Downey (RD of Mountain View) and Mike Blount (Career & Internship Center Counselor) have co-led the Men Achieving Purity (MAP) group on Messiah’s campus for a number of years and will be speaking throughout the weekend.  In addition, we will have fun caving together as a way of connecting with other guys and looking deeper into the theme of the weekend!

This adventure retreat is hosted by the LOFT and is open to all male Messiah students. The weekend will include a bunch of men camping in the woods, lots of food, a crazy fun nighttime game, caving, digging into God’s word, and good conversation around a campfire. 

What better way can you spend a fall weekend than to be with a bunch of Messiah men in the woods (or underground)?
