2018 Men’s Retreat

7pm Friday March 2 – 10am Sunday, March 4

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.

We are excited to announce that this year’s speaker will be Pastor Danny Martinez, the new Superintendent of the Central Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church for the ministries found in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan (Upper Peninsula), Missouri and Wisconsin. He is the first superintendent in our denomination of Latino descent. His parents emigrated from Guatemala to the United States, moving to Chicago, IL. Danny has served in a number of leadership roles, including worship, youth and lead pastor. He has also been a church planter and President of M.H.I.P.E. (Latino Association of Covenant churches in the US). Danny moved back home to Chicago, IL, from San Diego, CA, in 2017. Pastor Danny is an accomplished musician with several CD’s in different genres of music including Latin Pop, Heavy Metal, Jazz Fusion, Contemporary Worship and Latin Groove. He has led worship for the Evangelical Covenant Church denominational events such as Midwinter, Annual Meeting, CHIC and the Feast. He has been a worship leader for youth and men’s events and his passion is multicultural worship. Reverend Danny Martinez is a graduate of C.H.E.T. (The Center for Theological Studies serving the Evangelical Church). He is also a graduate of Fuller Seminary with a Masters of Divinity, and is finishing a Doctorate in Homiletics. His heart is to serve and love people. His engaging and funny focus on gender, race, social status and values makes him a great speaker for new believers and all who want to learn in a fun and easy to understand manner. Danny has three children. His two teenage children think he is the most ancient living being on the planet. His oldest son recently got married in San Diego, CA.
