In Acts 13:1-2, the five leaders of the church at Antioch are described as taking time in “ministering to the Lord and fasting.” There is no indication that they were seeking anything from God. All that we are told is that they were “ministering to the Lord and fasting.” Period. But it is while their hearts are focused on worshipping God and ministering to Him that they are able to hear the voice of His Spirit saying, “Set apart for Me, Barnabas, and Saul…” Had this been the average church in America, a strategic planning session might have been in full swing! But not in Antioch! Their sights were set on God and God alone. What might happen if today’s church leadership were to regularly set aside time to seek the face of God – sit at His feet – be still before Him? What might He reveal to us? What world–changing ministries might God give birth to? Let's gather to seek the face of God as a covenant community.

If you are looking for the next step of training to help you reach your neighbor for Christ, then the Men’s Equipping Retreat is for you. This Roundup-sponsored event is designed to continue the ministry priorities of Roundup in a smaller group setting that is aimed at surfacing and training leaders. Solid biblical teaching and directed opportunities to work those truths into your church context will have great benefit toward accomplishing our mission. Get together with the men you are serving with and make this a strategic time of instruction, planning and equipping for the work that God has set before you.
At the Annual Enrichment Conference our hope is that you would experience three things while we are together. First, that you would be reminded of, and re-committed to, our previously agreed upon vision and mission that is to be lived out in covenant community. Second, that you would be blessed by your interaction with the other churches in our covenant community — whether that comes from the stage, worship times, forums, in the lobby or around a meal. Third, that you would have the opportunity to bless another church.
