Counter-Cultural Discipleship: A Call to Follow Jesus
In a rapidly changing world, how can men encourage one another to follow Jesus? No matter what your age, or how long you have walked as a Christian man, following Christ can be challenging!
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus delivers a sermon to His followers defining the counter-cultural nature of Christianity. He teaches them that to follow Him means to live differently in our world.
Jesus begins with eight statements, called the Beatitudes, which are the qualities that mark His disciples. The list extends into every aspect of life and encourages believers to live a life devoted to Christ and his kingdom. “The cross before me, the world behind me” is more than a song lyric; it is a mandate for disciples.
The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday night and will conclude after lunch on Saturday afternoon. We are going to take time for interaction, fellowship, prayer and mutual encouragement. Come out to be encouraged in your relationship with Jesus Christ and other men, and to be equipped as a disciple making disciple!
Friday, March 29th, 6:45-9:30 p.m. – Includes dinner
Saturday, March 30th, 8:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. – Includes breakfast and lunch
