2021 Men's Retreat: Born to Serve, The Biblical Design for Men to Serve
The Bible teaches that believers in Christ are His bond-servants (1 Cor. 7:22; Eph. 6:6; 2 Tim. 2:24). What does that mean in our day? And, what are the special callings upon men to be servants? During this Retreat we will first clarify what the Bible means by the term “bond-servant”. We will observe how it is defined, described, and demanded. Next we will examine the goals of biblical servanthood. How do they line up with our usual personal aspirations in the Christian life? What about the heart? Here is often the biggest obstacle for sinners like us: How do we develop a servant’s heart, rather than a self-centered one? Men are called to be servants and also called to be leaders in their various circles of endeavor. How does one do both and what does it look like in our day? We will also examine the various challenges to living out a servant’s calling. These challenges can be internal and external. How do we overcome these? Finally, we will look to our great example of servanthood – our Lord Jesus Christ. Come to this Retreat and find instruction and encouragement to be the servant you were born to be.

Welcome to Grace Bible Presbyterian Church! We are a reformed, bible believing church that strives to bring glory to God through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We provide a place of worship where Christians may have the Bible taught as the Word of God and grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. We provide a place where those who are not Christians may hear the plan of salvation and be led to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and to provide a testimony for the historic Christian faith by earnestly contending for this faith.
You are invited to join us as we grow in our understanding the great majesty of God and how to live daily in light of His glory and Word.
