What is Bootcamp?

Bootcamp is our annual Men’s retreat that exists to bring the men of Hope together for 24 hours to have fun, pursue Christ, and build community. We desire to journey together by receiving Biblical teaching from our pastors, having fun by competing in the Manathon, and studying God’s word further, playing football, or staying up late around the fire or our favorite board games in your Bootcamp teams.

    • Biblical Teaching
      • Several of our pastors lead us through time in the Word and challenge us to pursue Christ and live out the gospel above all else. This is a time for us to be both challenged and encouraged as we learn what it means to be Godly men in pursuit of Christ.
      • Include pictures if possible
    • The Manathon
      • This is one of our favorite Bootcamp traditions. Each team (small group)  of guys will compete in various activities involving feats of strength, smarts, and stupidity. Some of our favorites in the past have included the caber toss, the football pyramid, the build-your-own-sled pull, and blind bowling.
      • Include pictures if possible
    • Bootcamp Teams
      • We strongly encourage you to come to Bootcamp with your small group so that you can compete, learn, and grow together. If you don’t have enough guys to fill and entire team or you just come with a friend than we will place you on a team for the weekend. This is a great way to get to know other guys at Hope who you might not run into before on a Sunday morning or in any other Hope ministry.
