Every man was created to be a “super” man. Each of us has been given our unique personalities and set of talents to be put to use for our well-being, that of our families, and for the world around us. Unfortunately, our secular culture doesn’t tell us that these are only part of what we need to truly become “super” – there is a missing ingredient.

When a man does not tap into this missing ingredient, he cannot enter into the fullness of what he was created to be. This is why so many men can feel empty, frustrated, or powerless, even if they are giving their all. What is this missing ingredient? The fire of the Holy Spirit.

Christianity is much more than a set of beliefs to guide our lives by. It is an engaging and dynamic relationship with God our Father, through Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us wisdom and knowledge, and empowers us to rise above our limitations to do what God himself wants to do through us. Men have such an important role in their families and in society, yet so few tap into what God has given us to bring life and clarity to those around us.

Our culture suffers because it does not see a witness of lay people who are living in the power of the Holy Spirit. It does not see the freedom and joy that comes from following Christ. Many live without purpose. Many live without hope. Many feel powerless to change themselves or their situations.

God Always Has More For You!

Do you want more? Do you want to make a difference in the world around you?  Come and learn about the four aspects of a heavenly culture: the Culture of Encounter, the Culture of Surrender, the Culture of the Holy Spirit, and the Culture of the Glorious Freedom of the Sons of God.

  • Discover the life of joy, freedom and power that God created you to have.
  • Unlock your potential as a man of God.
  • Gain a new vision for yourself and your family.
  • Meet other men who are seeking the same thing.

You will hear from men, just like yourself, who have experienced the love of God and the power of the Holy Spirit to transform them into joy-filled men who have made a difference in their families, businesses, and the world around them. The retreat will also include Mass, worship, prayer for healing and the impartation of spiritual gifts.

If your heart is stirred with a desire to experience more of God’s love for you and the power of the Holy Spirit in your life, come. If you want a greater sense of purpose in your life, come. If you want to know how to fight for your family and be a light to the world, come.


Our speakers are men who have been deeply touched by the Lord and who are dynamic witnesses of the Catholic faith in their families, businesses, and local communities. You will see what God can do in and through ordinary men when they say “yes” to God. Come be inspired and get a vision for what God can do for you and through you!
