2023 Men's Retreat with Chris Hall

Oct 13-15
Daylesford Abbey Spirituality Center

Speaker: Dr. Chris Hall

Topic: "Growing More in the Image of Christ"

"I’m really looking forward to spending time with my pals on the men’s retreat. We’ll be learning together the process of formation into the image of Jesus. Paul writes in Colossians 1. 15 that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. So, we will be talking about how formation into Jesus’ image actually occurs. A thematic verse for the retreat is Galatians 5. 6  'For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.' We’ll chew on this text and others. And, of course, have lots of fun."  — Chris Hall


Join us on this retreat weekend designed for men who are desiring to grow as image-bearers of Christ—deepening relationship with God and with others. Embrace the opportunity to forge meaningful connections with like-minded men who are also on a journey of spiritual growth.
