KDM: Two Retreats, One Weekend

Kansas Men of all ages are invited to a weekend filled with fun, fellowship, and learning at Tawakoni.  The weekend starts with KDM Fall Retreat, Sept. 27-28, led by Director of Disciples Men’s ministries of the General Church, Greg Alexander.

As Associate Regional Minister then Regional Minister in Kentucky, he developed men’s ministry resources and worked with ecumenical men’s leaders both nationally and internationally.

He will give four presentations on “What it Means to be a Man Today.”

The retreat will begin at 5 p.m. on Friday and conclude shortly after dinner on Saturday. A pre-event work project is planned for Friday afternoon, and a Friday afternoon golf outing is on the agenda if at least four golfers pre-register. 

Following the men’s Fall Retreat, the 5th annual men’s Odyssey Experience will begin at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 28.

Originally conceived as a mentorship program, the Men’s Odyssey Project is an ongoing effort to nurture Christ-like character in men of all ages. The retreat introduces the intentional process of reflecting on eight character qualities and scriptural teachings

Those qualities are:

  • compassion
  • faithfulness
  • generosity
  • humbleness
  • respectfulness
  • responsibility
  • reliability
  • self-control.

Then, participants are encouraged to live out these character traits through a daily act of service.

Participants receive an eight week “Rule of Life” book designed to help them develop the habits of living the character of Jesus in everyday life. They also receive a guide for a monthly men’s Odyssey group designed to encourage men to reflect on the nature of our Lord and Savior.

Register by Sept. 13 and pay online for either retreat below or download a registration form and mail with payment to the Topeka Regional Office.
