Men’s Weekend Canoe Trip (hosted by Empowering Ranch)

Boundary Waters Canoe Area

Each Men’s Physical & Spiritual Adventure Retreat offers us an opportunity to get out of our boxes, to go into the wilderness, and to be with God and other men. The word for wilderness in scripture has at its Hebrew root the meaning “to speak.” When people go out into the wilderness in scripture, they hear God speak (e.g. Hagar, Moses, the Israelites, Jesus). Come be a part of this adventure where we will tell stories, have conversations, be still, enjoy beauty, explore scripture through the Socratic Method (an invitational, question-rich style of engagement), and feel alive because the topography around us will match the topography of our hearts–and we were created for such congruence.
