Men’s Wilderness Experience – Rise Above 2009
God’s message to men in the midst of change and challenge has always been consistent: Rise Above. “But those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles,they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 NIV
We are living in the midst of dynamic and challenging times. Our resolve is being challenged. Our character is being tested. Our ability to endure is being stretched. Our relationships are under attack. Our spiritual resources are being depleted. Our emotional strength is being taxed heavily. But in the midst, we are being called out as men, asked to leave low level living and commitment, and Rise Above all obstacles to faith and commitment to Christ. The result: new levels of hope, discipline, faith, risk, and witness to the world. It’s called transcendence.
God wants eagles not pigeons. The world needs eagles not pigeons. But we must renew our strength in the Lord for that to happen. Join the men of Saddleback on an outback adventure and spiritual growth experience at RISE ABOVE 2009.
