Do you ever find yourself trying to live up to the standards of those around you?  Are you always trying to meet expectations set by others?

It can be frustrating to try to live up to the "requirements" of others only to fall short due to ever-changing rules.

Join us in Greenville, Missouri, on January 21-23 for the New McKendree Men's Retreat. Our camp pastor, Ken Elben, will be covering Micah 6:8, where the prophet Micah tells the people of Israel what God truly expects of them.

As always, we will have good fellowship time, great food, games, and opportunities to get to know new people.

Early Bird Registration through November 7th - $95/person
Registration after November 7th - $115/person


Please direct any questions about the retreat to Mark McEachern:


About Ken Elben

Since 1993 I have had the privilege of ministering, with diverse and exceptionally gifted teams at Forest Home Ministries, Shadow Mountain Community Church, Christ Church Memphis and currently Dalton First United Methodist. 

I trusted Jesus Christ with my life in 1978 and in 1989 received my call to ministry. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Studies at San Diego Christian College (1993) and earned my MDIV from Bethel Seminary (2002). I believe the Bible is the final authority for moral, spiritual and cultural matters. I love to preach and teach the Word of God and see it transform people’s lives. I am so thankful for the grace of God displayed through His Son, Jesus Christ, and it is my purpose in life to share this with others. 

Joy and I have been married since 1997, and in 2004 we adopted our son, Isaiah. We are all native Southern Californians and our family shares a passion for loving people and sharing the love of Jesus in every interaction.
