Men's Retreat - 2019

NOTE: only 24 slots remain open - Registration deadline is October 6, 2019.

Goals for the Weekend:

  • Have fun with an inter-generational group of men: bonding
  • Enjoy the slower pace of “being away”: relaxing;
  • Learn something about myself, my relationship with others and with God: growing.

Theme for the Weekend: Tim Halteman, son of Norm and Chris, has been invited to be the resource speaker for the weekend. His topic: “What’s the plan, man?”

  Meet Tim: 

Tim is a child of the one true and living God. Seeking to serve Him in all that he does.
Tim’s passion is to build up the church to be equipped to share “the incredible greatness of God’s power” Eph1:19
Through Tim’s failures and successes, and through his many experiences he is dedicated to bringing/sharing the gospel.

Tim is a seminary trained leader and has been in camping ministry, youth ministry, adult ministry and currently serves as the men’s ministry leader at Lewisburg Alliance Church. He is currently working as a project manager for Baney Brothers Trucking and is also working on ordination in the C&MA denomination.

Tim is married to his true love, Lauren, and they have 3 children: Gabe, Conor, and Natalie
