First Baptist Church of Guthrie Center did a great job of hosting the Men’s Retreat this year. Our special speaker was Russ Crowe from International Falls, Minnesota. In addition to be a gifted speaker, he is well known for his skills as a fisherman. He is the founder of Fishing for Men Ministries. His messages focused on ways to care for the local church. We were challenged to have a servant’s heart when serving in our churches. We were instructed on the importance of being purposeful in how we assist our Pastors, by encouraging and praying for them. I was especially challenged to consider to how I become Christ-like in my attitudes, appetites and actions.
Fun (interesting) things that happened during the retreat:
One of golfers from Carroll hit a hole in one during the golf event on Friday.
We experienced a tornado warning on Friday prior to the evening session.
