Men are engaged in many things. Jobs, surfing, fantasy football, video games, pornography. The call to be fully engaged with Christ is an urgent one. That’s why we’re planning the FULLY ENGAGED Men’s Conference.
Our featured speaker, Dr. Don Carson, will be challenging men to fully engage with their Lord, their family, their church, and their community at this multi-church mens retreat. The 24 hours we spend together will be transformative.
Dr. Carson will speak on four topics: A Mature Man, A Stable Man, A Family Man, and An Equipped Man. After most of the sessions, we’ll have 30 minutes for individual churches to gather and discuss. We’ll also have great worship and some free time on Saturday afternoon for sports, surfing, talking story, etc.
Camp Homelani is an ideal oceanfront campground, with some of the best camp food on the island, and recently refurbished cabins with all new bunks.
