Men's Retreat - Growing Christians: Planting, Watering and Watching GOD Give the Increase

with Tony Dungy and James "J.B." Brown

April 8-10, 2022

As men of God, we have a responsibility to “go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19, ESV). How do we make disciples and model Christ-likeness in all that we do? Come let the Bible teach you how to have a positive impact on others at work, at home, and in your community.
