Men's Retreat/Men's Conference
Each year the men of Forest Brook come together for two special events with a focus on discipleship and evangelism; a weekend retreat in the fall and a conference in the spring. The spring conference held at Forest Brook is a further time of encouragement for all men who seek to serve Christ in their families, church, workplace and community.
Feeding the body, mind and soul is the purpose behind the men’s Saturday morning breakfasts held several times throughout the year. The men enjoy a sumptuous breakfast and hear an inspiring testimony of how God has worked in someone’s life and/or participate in a community service project. These informal gatherings provide an opportunity for Forest Brook men to invite a friend who may be seeking encouragement in their lives.
For men who enjoy connecting and building relationships while exercising their sporting abilities, the gym is the place to be on Tuesday evenings for recreational floor hockey. We also participate in a local winter hockey league and a summer softball league. In addition, Forest Brook recently held a golf tournament, which proved to be a big success, and will continue each fall to be an opportunity for men and women to join together in sport and God’s embrace.
Tuesdays (Fall-Spring): Floor Hockey, 9:00-10:30 PM
Spring/Summer Softball Team
Annual Fall Golf Tournament (Saturday in September)
Each fall we attend a one or two day conference that brings men together for a time of encouragement and to be challenged in various areas of being a man. We have found that men tend to be more open to God’s presence when they are with other men. There is something unique about the all male environment that sets men free to drop the normal posturing and humble ourselves in Jesus Christ, committing to new beginnings.
