All about the

MEN’S ADVANCE

The Men’s Advance is a two-day meeting for the men of independent Baptist churches in northern Minnesota and the surrounding area. It’s like a retreat, but real men don’t retreat – they advance! The dates for the Men’s Advance are April 24-25, 2020.

Focus on

BIBLE PREACHING

The main activity of the Men’s Advance has always been Bible preaching. We’re looking forward once again to the preaching of the Word of God, and praying that God will use these men in a great way for Men’s Advance 2020!

Preaching theme

MIGHTY MEN
delimiter image

This year our session speakers will be preaching on some of the “Mighty Men” of David. The weapons they used and the principles they held are examples to us still today. David could not have been the mighty leader and king that he was without the support of the mighty men he had around him.

3D Bow Shoot / Pistol Range

SHOOT LIKE A MAN

We’re excited to bring back the annual bow and pistol shoot that we’re calling “Shoot Like a Man!” On Friday, April 24, those participating in the shoot will enjoy a fun archery course of various 3D targets in a country setting, along with a separate pistol range. There is no cost to participate!

Bring your own bow and arrows and/0r handguns if you have them. A limited number will be available for use for those who do not have their own. Meet at the Hoiseth farm at 11:00 am: 22505 230th Ave SW, Crookston, MN.

Minimum age

In order to give the preachers full liberty to preach on the struggles and topics unique to men, we ask that young men be at least 14 years old to attend.

Where to stay

There are a limited number of hotel rooms in Crookston that are being provided by the members of Bible Baptist Church and Northwoods Baptist Church. If you would like to reserve one of these rooms, please let us know that you’re coming no later than March 16.

What to wear

This meeting is less formal than a regular church service. Most guys will be dressed “business casual.” In other words, feel free to leave the tie at home.

How much

The Men’s Advance is a joint ministry of Bible Baptist Church and Northwoods Baptist Church. There is no registration fee; only a free-will offering for the guest preachers. The Friday “Shoot Like a Man” activity is also included in the event, free of charge.
