2017 Men’s Retreat
7pm Friday March 3 – 10am Sunday, March 5
Invite some friends out for a weekend of fun, fellowship, excellent food, meaningful conversations, and life-giving worship. Recreation opportunities include a broomball tournament, afternoon jam session (bring your own instrument), snowshoeing, cross country skiing on our groomed ski trails, sauna and polar bear dip, or just card games and conversations in the dining hall.
This year’s speaker is Donn Engebretson, Director of Global Advancement and Project Leader of Covenant Kids Congo. Donn previously served the Covenant Church as Executive Vice President from 2001-2012 and Executive Minister of the Ordered Ministry from 1998 to 2001. Donn was born in Chicago where he attended North Park College and earned a B.A. in English literature and History in 1973. After pursuing theologial education at the University of Edinburgh, he returned to North Park Theological Seminary and finished his Master of Divinity degree in 1978.
Donn has served as lead Pastor of Covenant Churches in Illinois, Colorado, Connecticut, and Michigan. Donn is married to Sally Nordstrom Engebretson, a retired teacher. He and Sally have two children, Kristen, and Karl. Donn loves to read, spend time with his family, and enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds.
