RECONNECTIONS prefers to train and equip through the avenue of weekend [men's/leadership] retreats, because we believe it takes time to plant seeds that will lead to real change. Teaching without leading is what has resulted in our existing state, and weekend retreats provide the minimal amount of time required to not only teach, but to begin to set an example of a different track for men to run on. We are currently offering two weekend men's/leadership retreats: one for beginning on a totally new track, and one for heightening and maintaining the mental and spiritual state of your men.

At this RECONNECTIONS weekend, men and leadership will experience:

  • Break-out sessions for the shepherds, to expose them to the futility of The Classroom and to begin moving forward with the John 15 model. Michael will also use this time to get a feel for current leadership for future consulting.
  • Break-out sessions for the men, to get them thinking about how employing their critical giftedness can impact the body for good, and how their absence has an opposite negative effect.
  • Joint sessions to open lines of communication, get everyone on the same page, and help all understand how the John 15 model can unlock the gates to the dormant potential that waits to be freed, so all together can run!
  • A Saturday afternoon they've probably never experienced at a men's retreat.

But involvement does not stop with the weekend, because Mike's commitment is to do all possible to help you be successful in establishing the new model when you return home. To help you accomplish this goal, He will:

  • Return with you for a two day consult back at the church, where he will work with leadership to move forward on your new track.
  • Conduct interviews with your current leadership team, and suggest where changes may need to be made.
  • Help you begin to network with churches, para-church organizations, and individuals around the country that can help you establish externally focused ministries in your community, and help mentor you through the process.
  • Gather your new leadership team for a final night of encouragement, prayer, and Q&A.

Perhaps you're happy with your direction, but want to take the fellowship experience to an entirely new level. Then you're ready to experience the greatest gift God ever gave for accomplishing just that purposeā€¦

  Why Retreats?


The Lost Supper  

At a LOST SUPPER weekend, men and leadership will experience:

  • A small group Communion encounter based upon Mike's book, The Lost Supper, unlike any they have experienced before.
  • An understanding of the incredible power of Communion to heal and restore that is simply not available to God's people in any other discipline or ritual.
  • A model that can easily be brought back to your fellowship and practiced on a regular basis to confront sin and superficiality, restore reality, and bond brothers in love and unity like no other single experience.

Mike will be flexible with fees, depending upon the financial abilities of the congregation. He prefers to stay with a host family from the church to keep your costs down. All travel and trip expenses will need to be paid. Requested fees are:

  • Weekend retreat: $1,000.00
  • 2 Day follow up consult [Truth and Tension weekend only]: $500.00
