What is it?
Man Camp was created as a way for Acts 29 churches in the Northwest to partner together in tangible and practical ways. With Acts 29 being a single-issue network to plant churches that plant churches, it made sense to create an event aimed particularly at the development of men. We also wanted to create network space for our men to meet men from other churches, and to be encouraged and inspired by a vision that is larger than themselves individually and their particular churches.
Who is it for?
Man Camp is for men from the participating churches and their guests.
What do we do?
Man Camp is a time to learn and be challenged from God’s Word during our session times, to worship, pray, and have fellowship with one another, and to enjoy the beauty and many recreational opportunities available at the ranch.
