Mountaintop Men's Retreat
Register for Retreat
  1. February 23-24, 2018

    Mountaintop Men’s Retreat is a gathering of men from Foursquare Churches from Portland Metro and the Willamette Valley. It happens at the historic Crestview Manor in Corbett, Oregon, where thousands of lives have been changed over the years. Just as Jesus got away with His Father and prayed, we believe it is important to get away from the everyday pressure of work, and meet God on the mountaintop. We have no other agendas but to worship together as men of God, get a fresh perspective from His Word, and seek His guidance for our lives.

The Power to Prevail

Speaker Dan Russell

Dan Russell has an impressive athletic career: From being a four-time NCAA Wrestling Champion, unofficial World Champion, to his career as Olympic Coach at the 2004 Olympic games in Athens, Greece. For the past many years he served as the senior pastor of Battle Ground Foursquare Church in Washington. Dan is now living in Idaho with his wife, Joy, and in spreading the gospel to Muslim countries through his shared connection with wrestling. Dan's testimony and his ability to connect with men will be an encouragement for the men of our church.
 
“Coming home from the win, I walked in and set up all of my trophies on a shelf, and I began to cry. I had accomplished everything I had set out to do, and it was the emptiest, loneliest experience of my life. I recommitted my life to the Lord that night.”  Even after his athletic success, Dan wrestled with the emptiness of his achievements.
 
It wasn’t until Dan pursued the real prize – Jesus Christ – that his life took a meaningful turn and he would touch the lives of many on a much greater scale than he could ever do on his own strength.

Genesis 32:24-28

Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. And He said, "Let Me go, for the day breaks."

But he said, "I will not let You go unless You bless me!" So He said to him, "What is your name?" He said, "Jacob." And He said, "Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed." (NKJV)
