Retreat Speaker – Kenny Luck
Worship Leader – Ryan Langford
Wherever you are in your journey, the God of the universe is excited to help you take the next step. Join together with other men for an action-packed time of adventure, inspiration, and connection at Pineywoods Camp located in Woodlake, TX – about two hours north of Houston. This retreat is for men 18 years and older from any of our campuses – and guests, too.
Our theme this year is “Ignite the Fire!” and we’ll unpack it together in three keynote sessions and some impactful Ignite Group sessions where men connec intergenerationally. Our retreat speaker for the weekend will be Kenny Luck, the Pastor at Crossline Church in Laguna Hills, CA.
Our prayer is that every man will discover a refined vision for his life as a man, restored commitment to courageous living, a renewed connection with each other, and a set of practical tools for this journey they are on.
We have the pleasure of hearing from Retreat Speaker, Kenny Luck!
