2023 ABA Men's Retreat

I'M ALL IN - GIVING GOD FULL CONTROL

The theme of the weekend is "Sold out" - however the event is not sold out! Registration is open and all are welcome! Sign up before the deadline and tell your friends!

Hosted by Trochu Baptist Church.

We are excited to invite you to join with men from the ABA for a time of rest, fun and connection. Our theme this year, "SOLD OUT" represents our desire to give up our desires and control and find what it means for you to surrender fully to God.

The ABA Men’s retreat is designed to be one of down-time, rest, fun and connection. Opportunities are offered for men to connect with God and one another, to grow in friendship as well as in their relationship with Jesus. Camp Caroline sits in the beautiful foothills of Alberta and has an inviting facility with an indoor pool, hot-tub, full size gym and great sitting areas. You won’t be disappointed investing in this weekend away. 

Come with an expectation to rest, have fun, and reconnect with God and others. Feel free to bring your favorite games and snacks, and any winter outerwear you may require as there will be opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. If you want to use the gymnasium, appropriate non marking footwear is required, plus a sense of humor and a willingness to compete. If you’re planning on playing water sports or doing laps, or relaxing in the hot tub, bring your swimwear and towel. Additional things to bring: Your Bible, notebook or journal and a desire to spend time in God’s word, in worship, in prayer and reflection.

About our Guest Speaker: Pastor Dave Huber is currently on pastoral staff at Trinity church in Kelowna where he has been the creative director for the past 16 years. Dave grew up going to camp Caroline until he decided to become a professional camper as the program director for Green Bay Bible Camp in West Kelowna where he served for almost a decade. He’s the father to two adult kids, one daughter-in-law, and a dog who thinks he’s a cat. 30 years ago, he made the wisest decision to date and married Nicole. This year they will celebrate 28 of the best years of their lives (there were a couple of rocky ones in there)!

Dave has never graced a bestseller list, perhaps because he’s never penned a book without pictures! He doesn’t have any awards that you’d care about or millions following on social media. But Dave is passionate about making the story of God come alive through any possible creative form. 

Dave is honoured to “return home” and speak at the camp that birthed many of his passions, inspired his creative process and shaped the foundation of his spiritual life.
