MLGC Men’s Retreat


A period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, or study.

Whether you are a father, brother, husband, or a single man, being a man means that your family and loved ones depend on you for spiritual, emotional, and financial support. These everyday responsibilities can exhaust your body, spirit, and mind. It is important for every man to pause and sometimes go away alone to relax. While planning a holiday alone is possible, sometimes it is better to go away with a group of fellow Christian men to bond and immerse yourself in God’s presence.
