As men of Christ, we are called to many responsibilities and roles throughout our lives … Fathers and husbands, leaders in our workplace and church, examples in the community and amongst our peer groups. Together, we will explore some of the challenges that face men today and how we can face them courageously.

The theme of this year’s men’s retreat is “Courageous.” The vision is to bring the men of Westheights together so we can encourage and support each other to be Godly Men in this world.

Imagine the transforming power of men coming together within our church and community to honestly examine our lives and take the courageous steps necessary to embrace authentic manhood on a journey to become the men who God intends us to be.

Through Christ, we are united as brothers, called to support and encourage each other through the challenges life throws at us … and, simply put, know what’s going on in each other’s lives and walk with each other through it. We hope that this retreat will be a stepping stone to forming new relation-ships, building on old bonds and overall just help us grow closer to each other and God! (And, of course, part of that will be sports and campfires and all that other “manly stuff too” *grunt*).
