Men’s Advance: It’s not all fun and games!

Men's Advance - a lot of fun and gamesOkay, so there is a lot fun and games… HUGE Highland Games, Cool Machines Show, Climbing Tower, High Ropes Course, Horseback Riding, and a host of other activities. But that’s not what makes Men’s Advance worth attending. Activities are things guys already do together – go to sporting events, play softball, go hunting, or attend car shows – guys like to do stuff when they’re together. A man’s life is meant to be lived engaged, active, focused. A man’s life is meant to be Lived On Purpose!

Dennis Swanberg, keynote speaker for Men’s Advance, gets it. He gets the “Man Code” – the title of his newest book. Guys need challenge and teaching from God’s Word. They need salvation and discipleship. But you have to make it engaging, memorable, focused. Dennis is a comedian, a super funny guy, but really a comedian with purpose. Dennis uses humor and story to open the hearts of his audience so that what God pours in is not just information but life-changing truth.

Men, are you looking for tools to live life with balance, focus, purpose? Dennis Swanberg will deliver. For a preview, check out his website

In addition to engaging activities and a keynote speaker, Men’s Advance doesn’t let up in the challenge for men to live authentic, accountable lives together. There are practical faith-building workshops on topics such as missions, finances, freedom from addictions, marriage, single-hood, and more. There’s a special workshop for junior and senior high guys helping them apply “The Man Code” for themselves.

Local church men’s groups accelerate their bond of discipleship through sharing Men’s Advance together. Individual guys, and those without a “formal” men’s group, appreciate the chance to hang out with other guys, pursuing the same truth and purpose of knowing God and living for Him. Men’s Advance is meant to be a “mountain top experience” that lasts a lifetime.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
