This is an invitation for Men, young and old to come to our annual Men's Retreat that we hold every year in Killarney, Co. Kerry. It is a get-away like no other!

This year's Meeting will be held from Thursday evening through Saturday morning (20-22nd April), and it costs just €30 for everything!

The theme this year is the Study of the Life of Jonah. A man that struggled with anger, bitterness, obedience to God's word, and the concepts of the grace and mercy of God. Here was a man that converted a boat-load of sailors, and ultimately changed an entire pagan nation (Assyria) - and yet wanted to die. God has some incredibly powerful lessons for us men to apply to our lives today!

Make plans to attend this life-changing event that includes fellowship, great preaching, awesome singing, prayer times, and great food! Weather permitting, there will even be mountain climbing, sports and hopefully a chance to witness for the Lord! Bring your Bible, and come hungry!

Don't miss this year’s Men's Retreat!

What to Expect

Easily expect to have a great time where you will be worn out, and yet very blessed by the preaching, the hiking, the eating, and the fellowship!

What To Do

Contact Pastor Craig Ledbetter and tell him you are coming, how many will be with you, and when you plan on arriving.

Booking is first-come, first serve, so make your plans and let pastor Craig know as soon as you can whether you are coming and when you plan on arriving.

Teens, and even younger boys are encouraged to come as long as their father is with them, or as along as the pastor agrees to take responsibility for them.

If you can come Thursday evening, and can stay all the way through till Saturday at Lunch, you will surely get a FULL CUP! But if you can only drive down on Friday, you still will be changed by the preaching!

Costs will be based on how many nights you can stay, and therefore how much FOOD each person eats. So, plan on about €30 per person (it may be more or less but it is a good number to hold to). That pays for the meals, and the hostel that we use for the meetings. Kids under 12 will just cost €20 each. If you can only come for one night, then take off €10.

From Cork, the village of Killarney is just one hour away. We have been doing this now for eight years, and it only gets better and better each time!

Please pray about being able to come, and let me know soon!

If you have any questions, or need directions, just email, telephone, or write me back! But remember, this is on a first come first serve basis so LET ME KNOW SOON!

I can’t wait for the shout!
