Study Topics for the Men's Retreat

Issues to Understand in the Life of Job, and Get Victory Over

The goal of menís Retreat this year is to learn what Job learned. Too many men get defeated by the attacks of Satan and by their own flesh, and they need to be encouraged that our Lord is God and that he is so worthy of being trusted, through the fires, the waters, the floods, the disasters, because of just who He is, not just because of what he does for us!
