Benefits for the Volunteer and the Congregation: 

The purpose of the Men’s Retreat is to build stronger ties of fellowship than can be achieved in Sunday services alone or in family retreats. The weekend activities may lead to stronger friendships and quite often to moments of self-discovery. The congregation benefits from stronger and deeper members, so there are both communal and personal gains.

Skills Needed: 

No particular skills are needed for this planning group. Just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to help so that the planning responsibilities are shared. There are a variety of tasks such as audio visual, activity planning, setting up car pools, so there will be something for all skill sets. .

Training, assistance, and safety requirements: 

Previous chairs and participants will happily provide all the assistance you need to be successful.
