Georgia Region Men's Retreat

Dr. Joseph Jeter Nearly 70 men of the Georgia region and a few women attended the 2002 Georgia Men's Retreat at Christmount Christian Assembly the weekend of March 8th. We were welcomed in the new dining hall that Christmount recently completed. It will serve both retreat groups and campers on two separate sides. The Georgia "Sowing Seeds" campaign includes money to buy furnishings for the dining hall, which were dedicated while we were at the retreat.

Dr. Joseph Jeter, Homiletics professor at Brite Divinity School was the keynote speaker. He spoke of the power and importance of words in our lives and in the church. Layman of the year, Ray Dotson, gave an incisive devotion on perspective in the universe, which places humans squarely in the middle of the universe (exponentially). Troy Tatum led Friday vespers. Archie Jenkins gave the devotion on Saturday morning. Medie Still, Men's group President, led the business meeting on Saturday. The men adopted several projects related to Camp. A report on Guyton Christian's mission trip to Honduras by minister Gerald Demerast gave us insight into hands-on mission work supported by last year's retreat. The men enjoyed great singing, led by Bob Grant. Several men enjoyed a round of golf on Saturday afternoon. Michael Weeks led the Bible study on Sunday morning. James Brewer-Calvert brought the Sunday morning sermon.
