Hey Dads. You only get 18 summers with your son before they’re out of your house, and what we hear is that these 18 years go by way too fast. This retreat is loaded with activities that you can’t do at home, and the whole weekend is designed for you to make memories with your son and make an impact on his life. These will go down as the best three days of your year.
What To Expect
Dude, a Lake
Forget high-fives and side-hugs, let’s take our shirts off and chest bump each other to celebrate testosterone.
Joel Trainer, Retreat Director
Joel built the hospital he was born in. He came out sideways, with a full mustache, with the ability to speak sixty-two languages; his mom didn’t even make a peep. Joel slapped the doctor’s butt until he cried, and when the doctor asked Joel’s father if he wanted the honor of cutting the umbilical cord, Joel reached up, grabbed the scissors and cut it himself. Then, he hopped off table, put on his tennis shoes, and tied the laces with his toes.
Joel is the Lead Pastor at Three Creeks Church in Gahanna, Ohio. He is fired up to be back in the saddle, directing this retreat. Joel’s son Judah is 5 years old and can’t wait to come to his second Father and Son Retreat at Beulah Beach. Joel says, “The greatest thing I’ll ever do in my life may not be anything I do, but a son I raise.”
