Thanks for coming!

Despite the ultimate challenge to get here thru driving rain, closed roads, and nature's best attempt to stop you from coming, you persevered and made it to the Dads & Sons weekend! And, what a weekend it was! So much fun was had as we played together, worshipped together, and fortified your alliance together with the Lord. Thank you for attending our packed out Dads & Sons retreat! We look forward to hosting you again next February and don't forget to check out the photos and the video highlight from the weekend! God bless!

Description

You arrive on the island, few resources are available and the competition is fierce. The tribe has spoken, but the goal is different: victory not alone but together. Join us this Spring, February 10-12, as father and son, learning what it means to utilize the challenges you face as an opportunity to sharpen one another. The retreat promises a weekend filled with fun, excitement, games and lasting memories! Complete with engaging worship, intentional time together, outdoor activities, and the opportunity to build your own shelter! Grab your tribal buff- your first challenge awaits.

For dads with sons from 2nd to 6th grade.

Speaker

Speaker | Greg Mansur

Pastor Greg (or "PG" as he is often called) grew up in the Chicago area, but has called California his home for over a decade.  He has served in full-time ministry for over 20 years in 3 states as a lead pastor, associate pastor, children's pastor, and church planter.  Greg planted Adventure Church of Yuba City in 2012, and the church has grown from a couple dozen people to over 500 in those 4 years.  God's blessing has been so evident in his ministry through the years.  Greg has been married to his college sweetheart, Tracy, for 22 years, and they have 3 children: Joshua (age 20, serving in the Marine Corps), Kala (age 17, a junior volleyball and basketball player at Yuba City High School), and Gracy (age 9, in 4th grade, and an aspiring gymnast).  PG's ministry with children for over 7 years has uniquely equipped him to speak to kids and parents in an engaging, challenging, and humorous way.  You can follow Greg on his Facebook page:www.facebook.com/GregMansur.
