Men’s Retreat

Men’s Retreat | March 1 – 3
Biblical Manhood – Daily Worship 

Life is busy in today’s culture, but how do busy households recover the faithfulness that worship is? The daily worship of God by families at home is a practice rooted in the Bible and common throughout history. This could be an idea that you’ve been intimidated by or you’ve tried and given up. Come this weekend and rediscover how you can lead your loved ones in daily worship. 

During the retreat, Don Whitney will take time to teach us how you can lead in this area. He will break down 3 practical tips to get from the “we should” to “we can do” in 5-10 minutes every day with or without children. Discover how gathering together for worship is a means for God to reveal himself to you and your loved ones in a powerful way. 

Maybe the best thing about the Men’s Retreat, year to year, is that it doesn’t change all that much! You can continue to count on good food, good lodging, a good and Christ-honoring program of worship services and recreational activities…. and good, gracious men to welcome you into a safe place for a few restful, reflective and redemptive days. 

Don has been with us in the past and has been able to connect with our men. 


Don grew up in Osceola, Arkansas where he came to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. He was active in sports throughout high school and college and worked in the radio station his dad managed. 

After graduating from Arkansas State University, Don planned to finish law school and pursue a career in sportscasting. While there, he sensed God’s call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He then enrolled at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in 1979. 

In 1987, Don completed a Doctor of Ministry degree at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and later a Ph.D. in theology at the University of the Free State in South Africa. 

Prior to his ministry as a seminary professor, Don was a pastor of Glenfield Baptist Church in Glen Ellyn, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago), for almost fifteen years. Altogether, he has served local churches in pastoral ministry for 24 years. 

He has written several books, including Spiritual Disciplines for Christian Life. Don blogs regularly at
