Spring Men's Retreat

Date: April1-2, 2022
Speaker: Mr. John Anderson
Topic: Compelled to be Disciplemakers
Location: Crosswind Conference Center, Hesston, Kansas

The apostle Paul, on his journey to Jerusalem and certain imprisonment, said, “I do not account my life of any value, nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24). What compelled Paul to such costly commitment to making Christ known? During this weekend we’ll behold God’s compelling power and love in the Scriptures and walk away with vision and practical steps to make disciples who make disciples.

Message Titles

1. Disciplemakers Are Compelled by God’s Greatness (Isaiah 6)

2. Disciplemakers Are Compelled to Be Ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:14-21)

3. Disciplemakers Are Compelled to Make Disciples (Matthew 28:18-20)

4. Disciplemakers Are Compelled to Multiply (2 Timothy 2:1-2)

The conference is open to all men. Please join us April 1 and 2 for this overnight retreat. Bring your Bibles, notebooks and a willing heart!


John has served on staff with the Navigators for nine years at the University of Nebraska-Kearney and Wichita State University, where he currently serves as campus director.

John was an atheist when he met the Navigators as a freshman at the University of Northern Iowa. Over the course of a year he came to believe in Jesus through many conversations with new friends in his dorm. Afterward, another Navigator student taught him how to grow deeply in his relationship with God and share his faith with others. Since then John has dedicated himself to recruiting, inspiring, and training college students to share Christ and make disciples who make disciples right where they are and to the ends of the earth.
