Last year we started what we hope will continue as a long-standing tradition here in the northland: a preaching meeting geared for the men of like-minded independent Baptist churches in the region. It’s like a retreat just for men, but of course, real men don’t retreat…they advance!

Dates: Men’s Advance 2018 will be on Friday & Saturday, April 20-21.
Location: Northwoods Baptist Church, 216 Beltrami Ave NW, Bemidji, MN. There is limited parking on the street downtown. Additional parking is just south of the church, in front of St. Michel’s Furniture and Sears.

Saturday, April 21
8:00 am – Coffee & Donuts

1:00 pm – Men’s Advance concludes with lunch. You can stay and eat or take it to go.
Ages: The minimum age for the Men’s Advance is 14.
Dress: This meeting is less formal than a regular church service, and has more of a “camp” feel. There is no official dress code, but most men will be wearing blue jeans or khaki pants with a collared shirt – basically “business casual.” Feel free to leave the tie at home and dress comfortably.
Registration: Please let us know as soon as possible if your church plans to come. We will need a final count by Tuesday, April 10. Plan to bring with you the registration fee of $40 per man. This can be paid individually, or together as a church. If someone is coming only for one of the two days, they can pay $30.
