The golf tournament is $80/person.

Saturday’s retreat starts with check-in at 8 a.m., then worship at 9 a.m. Breakout teaching sessions, a boxed lunch and afternoon session with communion will round out the day, with the event ending by 3 p.m.

Organizers are also seeking sponsors for the event, and every sponsor church receives a number of tickets for their men to attend the retreat. Major Sponsors are $600  (new sponsors get 12 registrations; past sponsors get 14 registrations). Local Sponsors are $300 (five registrations included).

“The support of our sponsor churches and corporate sponsors have help fund Men n Ministry S.C. in critical ways, providing funds so we can offer a high-quality event each year,” said Marvin Horton, Men n Ministry president.
