KNCSB ‘Challenge’ retreat serves teen guys

“Boys take. Men provide.”

With that simple definition of being a man, Andy Addis opened the first session of The Challenge, a KNCSB retreat for teen guys. It was held May 1-2 at Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kan.

Addis is KNCSB president and pastor of CrossPoint Church, Hutchinson, Kan.

He spent the first retreat session focusing on friendships and relationships based on Ecclesiastes 4:7-12. He also told about the relationship of David and Jonathan in 1 Samuel 18.

Addis told retreat participants that they are at the stage of life where they can choose their own friends.

“You could establish some friendships that will take you through the rest of your life.”

Addis gave the young men some guidelines for choosing the right friends.

But a young man’s most important relationship is with God. Addis urged those who do not know Christ to accept Him as their Savior and “become a brand new man.”

Retreat participants were urged to put the 2016 event on their calendars. It will be held May 6-7 at Webster Conference Center.
