Lutheran Men In Mission Retreat


DATES: APRIL 13-14th; Registration starts at 4:30pm on Friday, April 13
LOCATION: Lutheran Church of the Cross; Nisswa, MN
MUSIC: Jazz Worship Team of Lutheran Church of the Cross


Gord Gilbey, keynote speaker, has served as Executive Director of Missionfest and as a missionary with LAMP (Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots, Inc.), a cross-cultural ministry sharing Jesus Christ with God’s people in remote areas of Canada. Mr. Gilbey will address the universality and uniqueness of missions, as well as the need for unity within the worldwide church.

After he gave his life to Christ, Mr. Gilbey became a musician, illusionist, seminary graduate, and accredited worker with the Christian and Missionary Alliance, businessman, lay pastor and Executive Director of Missionfest Manitoba – all to the glory of God. He was designated to serve in one of Canada’s urban poor communities, but his talents as an illusionist were quickly recognized and used to share the Gospel with children.


All workshops will be offered twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Sign up when you arrive at the retreat.
