Church of God hopes men will be brought to a new level when it hosts its next annual Life Builders retreat called Men of Courage. The event typically attracts about 600 participants.

The conference will take place April 19 and 20 at the Church of God Convention Center and Campground, 5408 S. R. 674, Wimauma, starting at 4 p.m. The cost is $45; $20 for anyone 18 and younger.

Speakers will feature comedian Justin Fennell; former Harlem Globetrotter Seth Franco; and former Newsboys lead singer John James. There will also be golf and fishing tournaments, a block party, motorcycle ride and pig roast.

The tournaments have additional fees:

Anglers ages 16 and younger pay $10; anyone older pays $20. Check-in is at 7 a.m. Friday.

The cost for golf is $45. Play will start at 9 a.m. at The Golf Club at Cypress Creek.

“Life Builders is an experience like none other,” said the Rev. H. W. “Dusty” Wilson, state youth director. “Men are able to encounter God through worship and the Word in an atmosphere where they can easily relate and not feel intimidated.

“It has changed my life in so many ways,” he said. “I recommend Life Builders to any man who desires a greater relationship with the Lord.”
