Men’s Retreat Recap

By Craig Logemann

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.
