Meet Wayne!

This year's main session speaker is Wayne Wagner. A real man's man. Wayne is the Preaching Minister at Liverpool Christian Church in Liverpool NY. ​

His creativity and sense of humor will certainly make our weekend memorable but One of his greatest attributes is his raw authenticity. He makes you want to get real about your faith and stand up in the "fight." 

Wayne is a long-time friend to many of the men on our planning team and we know; whether you're just getting started in your faith journey or have been at it for a while, he will challenge us all to walk away ready to face the fight ahead.

Welcome to the Fight Men's Retreat


"The Fight" Men's retreat, is a laid back weekend of manliness. Our goal is to get away from the pressures of daily life long enough to think through the importance of our spiritual life. 


Life can be a FIGHT but that God has given us everything we need to stand up in the struggle and come out with faith. ​

 What to Expect:


The Camp:

Location, location, location! One of the best parts of this weekend is the setting. Roanoke Christian Camp is situated on the edge of the Pamlico River in Washington NC. Between organized events, you'll want to just sit by the water and take it in. 

  • We'll have several fire pits set up for you to sit around with a group of guys and just hang out.

  • There is the option of tent camping by the river if that's your style, the majority of the guys will take advantage of that. 

  • The camp also provides top-notch meals which are included in the price of registration. 


The Program:

  • Arrive as soon as noon on Friday to set up camp or chill by the river. (optional)

  • The first "official" moment will be dinner, served in the cafeteria. Groups will be welcomed, event t-shirts handed out, and a more detail schedule explained.

  • Friday Night Session: After dinner, we'll gather for a time of teaching with Wayne. 

  • Other shenanigans.... yes. Expect some of that

  • Fire Time: After our organized session, you may call it a night or pick one of several fire pits to gather around for the ancient art of "men sitting around a fire." It's truly a highlight. 

  • Saturday will also have meals, a main session, and plenty of competition for "The Belt"

The Belt:

In addition to our main sessions and hangout time, we'll be competing for the coveted championship belt! Each church group will earn points throughout the weekend and the group with the most points will will "The Belt" and bragging rights for the year. 

The Crew:

This event is for men seeking to take the next steps in their faith and grow together with other dudes. Though others may attend, It is planned by the men's ministries and pastors of 8 like-minded churches in NC and VA.
