Every man has lived a life. In his life, no doubt, he has experienced the interplay of love & tragedy, beauty & pain, peace & profound suffering. It is our belief that every man has a story to tell & must summon the courage to do so. In the telling, he will discover more than he ever imagined. Jesus invites us to enter the wild frontier of our stories, to laugh & bleed together, & ultimately to find him in the midst of our stories.
It is in our stories of goodness, joy, heartache, suffering, & sin that our truest self is exposed & our truest glory is found.
The Story Weekend is an invitation for you to enter the wild of the vast Rocky Mountains as well as the vast wildness of your own story. Risk telling your story in the safe company of men who will be risking their stories of truth, brokenness, redemption & glory, as well. Woven throughout the weekend will be a conversational, communal exploration of the story of Joseph starting in Genesis 37.
When? Thursday, June 11 (at 5 PM), through Sunday, June 14 (at noon)
