More than 50 men from about 10 different congregations gathered for the annual Camp Luz Men’s Retreat on April 5-7.  While some of the men have been attending this retreat for years, there were a good number of younger men also in attendance, which was very encouraging to see.

Dick Barrett, Conference minister for the Ohio Conference, provided the input throughout the weekend.  He challenged the group to focus their attention on being like Jesus, the model of a perfect man. Andrew Michaels, director of Camp Luz led the worship times.

Highlights of the weekend included the “Man Cave,” a tour at Pioneer Equipment, worship and input times, and fellowship with brothers in Christ.  The weather was perfect this year to enjoy several outdoor activities including, canoeing, hiking, and even cooking bacon on the campfire.

The men would like to challenge each church to send a group to experience the retreat next year.  It is always a time of great fellowship and encouragement for those who attend.
