"The steak cookout was awesome! Not only choosing my steak, but loading it up with seasoning, and then grilling myself, standing along side my brothers...amazing!

 "This was my first time to come and it was an AWESOME time to be with men of faith and see how God is working in our lives." 

"We had a blessed weekend. It was great being able to hear the word and share testimonies with fellow men." 

Special Guests 

Tom HarmonTom Harmon  I grew up in a Christian home and trusted Christ at an early age. I regret to say that most of the early years of my journey I did not walk in the ways of the Lord. In High School I enjoyed football, basketball and track. Upon graduation from High School I attended Northern Michigan University on a four year full ride athletic scholarship. I played four years of college football, and graduated with a bachelor of science degree. In 1973 I graduated from the Michigan State Police Academy and was a trooper for eleven years. In 1984 I sensed God's call on my life to preach and resigned from the department. I pastored a small church north of Lansing for four years and have been a full time itinerant preacher speaking in churches, camps, and Bible conferences for the past twenty-five years. My life's verse is Philippians 3:10



Alex Purtelloriginally from Ashland, Ohio is a worship leader and singer/songwriter. Alex has had a passion for worship ever since he was young and has been leading worship for a decade. He started a worship staffing company called Froot Group that helps worship leaders and churches connect. Bringing people closer to Christ by creating an intential worship experience is what Alex strives to do and he is excited to share this weekend with you.
