November 22-24, 2019

Are you a male between the ages of 45 & 65? Is the daily grind eating you up? Do you long for a break from the stress of life? Do you have deep questions but few places and little time to ask them? Are you wondering about your career, family, health, finances, future, faith, and/or self-identity? Would you welcome a few hours dedicated to reflection, rest, and recreation?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, consider joining us November 22-24 at Shepherd’s Spring Outdoor Ministry Center for a men’s weekend designed to provide “space to breathe.” This is not a “how to” workshop. It is not a seminar. There will be no expert. We won’t be "fixing” anyone. It will be a no-judgement zone. It will be focused on the three “Rs” of reflection, rest, and recreation. There will be conversation circles (but there will not be any compulsory sharing or participation). You will have space to breathe.
