Men’s Advance

Home / Men’s Advance

The annual Foothills Fellowship Church Men’s Advance (aka The Men’s Retreat) will be held at the Ponderosa Retreat Center in Larkspur on October 13th-14th with special guest speaker Dr. Ryan Tafilowski.


Ryan says this about the weekend sessions: The theme of the weekend is “microcosms,” which means, literally, “little worlds.” The New Testament is full of passages that illustrate the cosmic scope of God’s saving work in Christ, in whom God is “reconciling all things to himself, whether on earth or in heaven” (Colossians 1:20). But, even though he’s got big plans for all of creation, God is interested in what we do with our “little worlds,” too. Together, we’ll explore what it might look like to bring our work life, our friendships, and our family relationships in line with what God is doing “across the universe,” in the words of the unwitting theologian, John Lennon.

The total cost for the Advance is still only $59 and this includes lodging and meals on Friday evening, Saturday breakfast and Saturday lunch. Be sure to visit the Ponderosa Retreat Center website (click here) for more information on this beautiful and very well-run facility. Typically you will arrive at the Retreat Center between 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Friday. The Advance will conclude about 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Be sure to bring a sleeping bag, pillow and towels, as well as any beverages you may want to have in between meals. Also, please bring a snack or two to share with everyone during the Advance.
