2022 Men’s Retreat

 7pm Friday, Feb 25 – 10am Sunday, Feb 27

Come for a weekend of fun, fellowship, meaningful conversation, and worship. The Men’s Retreat is a highlight for many each year at Covenant Point. Invite your friends for the excellent food, good times, and life-giving worship and message. Recreational opportunities include a broomball tournament, afternoon jam session (bring your own instrument), snowshoeing, cross-country skiing on our groomed trails, sauna and polar bear dip, or games and conversation in the dining hall.

Check-in begins at 7:00 PM on Friday, with our first gathering at 8:00 PM.

Speaker & Theme

2022 Men’s Retreat Speaker:

We are excited to have Kevin Swanson, Associate Superintendent of the Central Conference of the ECC joining us this year as our Speaker.

Kevin was born in central Minnesota, grew up in Northern California, did his undergraduate studies in San Francisco, Chicago and Tennessee. He holds a degree in Missionary Aviation Technology (yes, he is a pilot), is an ordained minister in the Evangelical Covenant church and has been married to his wife Linda for 46 years. Kevin and Linda raised their two children in South America where they served with Mission Aviation Fellowship. After 28 years with that ministry, following God’s leadership, Kevin made a career change to pastoral ministry. For the past 14 years Kevin has served in various pastoral roles in ECC churches on both coasts and currently serves as the Associate Superintendent of the Central Conference of the ECC. Kevin enjoys doing just about anything with Linda, their children and grandchildren, hiking, biking, watching God transform lives and any opportunity that he gets to serve the missionary community. His real passions are Jesus and people.
