Mike Sciarra (right), pastor of the Grace Brethren church in Orange, California, will be the featured speaker for the Grace Brethren High Impact Men’s Conference to be held at the Pine Summit Christian Conference Center in Big Bear, California, the weekend of May 1-3, 2009.
The Theme for the retreat will be “Following Jesus Fully.” Cost will be $110 for standard housing and $155 for deluxe housing. There will be separate programming for men who speak English and for those who speak Spanish.
The steering committee said, “We are still rejoicing over what the Lord did at last year’s HIGH IMPACT and reports continue to come in with how the Lord used last year to unite our men and break through to some of the men who attended.
“It was by no accident that our theme last year focused around the idea that we as men are not alone in this world! God knows our every struggle and temptation! And more importantly God cares about our struggles and cares about each of us!”
More information will be available at this year’s FOCUS Retreat. Also, a packet of information will be arriving at each Southern California GBC church by the end of January with postcards and registration brochures.
