Greetings Brothers,

You are invited to attend the Men Under Construction Men’s Retreat at Cohutta Springs Conference Center on the weekend of October 6-8, 2023. This will be a hands-on man-building weekend designed to inspire and equip you to become the man God calls you to be!

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

The Building Metaphor

Most of us guys like to work with our hands, to build things, to repair things, and to get things done. It’s so satifying!  Most of us can do simple home projects and repairs with coaching from YouTube or a friend while a few of us have the skills to do major renovations or even build a complete house. Whatever your skillset may be, every project involves an investment of time, money, skills, tools, and materials.  It’s a process that starts with a vision and a plan for how to get the job done… it’s a lot like life!

What’s Your Plan?

So, what’s your plan for building the life that God is calling you to live? Do you have a vision? Do you have a plan? Do you have the tools? Unfortunately for most men the answer to these questions is anything but a solid YES. Most of us men have never been shown how to develop a comprehensive and cohesive plan for life based on biblical principles. That’s what this weekend is all about… developing your own personalized “Blueprint for Life”.

Creating Your Blueprint

During the weekend you will be introduced to the Blueprint System that will help you create your own “Blueprint for Life”.  We will address the four areas of life that are necessary for building strong men of God. These areas are your 1) Internal Strength, 2) Relational Strength, 3) Working Strength, and 4)Resource Strength. By the end of the weekend you will have a good start on your personal blueprint, some new tools, and a team of men to help you with the heavy lifting in the days that follow.

Join Us at the Men Under Construction Retreat

Here’s to Building Together with God,
