Disciples Men


Disciples Men Update

Winter is here but spring is coming soon.  For the Disciples men there are three upcoming events that we should be excited about.  I am asking that you not only read about our events but that you consider participating.  Joining with other men in service to God and community is not only faithful work but also fun and rewarding.  If you have questions about any of the events, check the CPA website under Events/News for more details.  You can also contact me via email or phone.


CPA/BBA Disciple Men’s Retreat – February 16 – 17

The 2017 retreat was a blessing for the more than 50 men who attended.  For 2018 the speaker is Dr. Warren Carter professor of New Testament at Brite.  He spoke at the Sessions 2016 event in Fort Worth and is an excellent speaker.  See the CPA website Events/Disciple Men’s Retreat for more information and registration forms.


CCSW 2018 Men’s Mission Project – March 5 – 10, Disciple Oaks

The 2018 Spring Mission Project will the build out of an office/welcome center for the Disciples Conference Center in Gonzales.  The building will have an office, conference room, kitchen, bathroom and storage, electrical, HVAC, etc. from a 33’ x 40’ assembled metallic shell building.  This is a great opportunity to be part of the team that has completed projects for over 20 years.  You can come for the entire week or just one day.  See the CPA website for more information and registration forms.


Disciple Oaks Challenge Course Facilitator Training – April 13 – 15, April 27 – 29

The Challenge Course program at Disciple Oaks has a dedicated, experienced and well trained team facilitators.  These are the guys in the red helmets (there are women too) who safely guide participants through the course elements.  In order for the course to have more use, we need more facilitators.  We especially need Disciples to make this commitment to our camp.  Serving as a facilitator is as much fun and it is work.  Check out the CPA website or contact me directly about this important training.
