What? When? Where?


2017 Alliance Men’s Retreat

Fight Like A Man:

Its time to start planning for this years men’s retreat  (November 3-5) which is open to all men.    

Our speaker this year will be Todd Braschler.  Todd is an ordained pastor in the Church of God (Anderson IN).  From 1985 to 2001, he served as an associate pastor in Worship, Youth, Christian Ed, Equipping and Assimilation, and Connecting ministries in churches with congregations from 150 – 4000 people. Todd’s ministry was re-directed into a different type of full-time ministry and Todd Braschler Ministries was formed.  Today his ministry consists of concerts, worship leading, guest speaking, men’s retreats, couples retreats, leadership retreats, and worship ministry retreats.       

As a father of three boys, Todd says that the greatest challenge quickly became challenging their energies, their focus and intention in a powerful, God-honoring direction. Similarly, re-directing the energy, the focus and the intention of a man is a powerful, life-changing experience for men seeking this kind of discipline. 

Where do men currently pour their time and energy?  Sports, retirement, security, hobbies? There are all great areas of focus, but for the man desiring to live in God’s pleasure, they are not even in the top 5. FIGHT LIKE A MAN is simply that – a refocusing on the strength and energy of a man in four major areas of his life that bring him into alignment with the anointing, the favor and the power of God.

4 Challenges Coming to Men Who Attend: 

1.  Fight like a man for God’s PURPOSE – Aligning my life with the passion and vision God has for me. 

2.  Fight like a man for God’s POWER – Accepting His strength to fight against temptation and pride.

3.  Fight like a man for God’s PRIORITY – Realizing the value God places on relationships with others, on people in general.

4.  Fight like a man for God’s PASSION – Accepting His highest calling, the burden to utilize our life for sake of another.
