Men's Retreat

September 24-26, 2021

We know you need a break from navigating the constant change and uncertainty of our present world! Men’s Retreat is designed to provide a refuge from the distractions of modern-day life with a fun-filled program and spiritual challenges to strengthen your faith through God’s Word. Be equipped to live as more than conquerors in Christ, with confidence that nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God. Join us for dynamic teaching, lively worship, and brotherly fellowship with one another. Choose one of the two weekends or come to them both!

April 29-May 1, 2022

Health & Safety Guidelines

In an effort to keep guests and staff safe and healthy, we have implemented the following:

  • Additional sanitation and cleaning procedures.

  • Daily health screenings (temperature and symptom checks).

  • The cohort model, which separates retreat attendees into several cohorts or “family units” throughout the weekend. Each cohort will not need to social distance within their cohort, but will need to keep at least 6 feet of physical distance from all other cohorts. Large church groups will be designated as their own cohort. Small church groups and all individual guests will be assigned to a cohort. We will enforce this model in the dining hall, lodging spaces, at staffed activities, and at all indoor gatherings.

  • A color-coded system allowing attendees to declare themselves red (strict social distancing), yellow (some social distancing), or green (only mandatory social distancing). Anyone who intends to declare themselves “red”, must book a private room.

Speaker: Bob Tissot

Bob has spent the majority of his adult life working with young people and families, from life as a teacher and coach in the public school setting, to CEO of Bair Lake Bible Camp for 29 years, to his current “retired” status. He has a BA in History Education from Wheaton College and a MA in Guidance and Counseling from Central Michigan University.

Bob and his wife Nanci have four adult children and four grandchildren with a fifth due to arrive September, 2021. Bob’s life mission statement reads, “To bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, I will conduct at least 300 quality one-on-one conversations in the course of each calendar year.”  It is Bob’s desire to assist others to sort through the tough issues of life which tend to drag us down and even paralyze us.  As one astute young man once said, “There is no such thing as a 15 minute conversation with Bob Tissot.”
