Do you want to live a life that matters - to live a life that would give honor to God and to those you love? We often believe the lies from the enemy that there is not a noble and unique reason that we were placed on this earth - giving in to the lie takes us away from the very things that we were created for. God is calling for men to take a step forward into their rightful places in the larger story. This retreat presents an incredible opportunity for you to learn what it means to be sold out to the will of Jesus Christ, our King and to become a man with a unique impact to our generation!
Gary Bittner - Gary Bittner grew up in a Christian home in the small lumber town of Valsetz, Oregon where he spent most days playing basketball, fishing or hunting. Gary met his wife Vonnie in high school and they have been married 39 1/2 years, and they have 3 adult children (2 married, 1 single) and 8 grandchildren.
Gary has served in many areas throughout his almost 40 years of church ministry and his passion is to declare the grace and goodness of God to everybody, all the time, everywhere and he loves equipping and inspiring the people of God to do the same.
