Join us for this year’s Providence Men’s Retreat at Idyllwild Pines Camp and Conference Center in Idyllwild, CA. In addition to great food, rich fellowship, and lots of outdoor activities, we welcome Dr. Scott Keith as our retreat speaker. Dr. Keith discusses why recapturing friendship is a great need for men in the church and generally in society today. He also addresses the question, why are men leaving the church? Dr. Keith explores this problem and offers solutions tied to family, friendship, and forgiveness.
