The Battle for Biblical Manhood
Ephesians 6:14-17

The world is filled with ideas about what it means to be a man, but where should you turn for answers? It seems like there’s confusion everywhere about manhood. The apostle Paul reminds us that we are to be soldiers for Christ who put on the Armor of God to fight against evil and the sin that seeks to invade our lives and our homes. As men, we are called to be protectors, shepherds, providers, and warriors for our families. As we gather around the campfire together this November, we’ll consider what the Bible says about being husbands, fathers, and men in a world hostile to truth.

Come join us at Hilliard Retreat Center Friday, November 8th through Saturday, November 9th, 2019 for a time of camping, fellowship, and hearty meals as we hear from our pastors and talk about the battle for biblical manhood.
