SNBA Men's Retreat

August 26-27th


Men's Retreat 

The SNBA Men's Retreat is a tremendous time for men and teenage young men to gather together in the name of Bible Study, Prayer, Fellowship and Worship!  

There are activities for "boys" of all ages and is filled with door prizes and unique opportunities to grow in Christ as a group together.

Meeting at East Texas Baptist Encampment in Newton gives us a tremendous "Retreat setting" and gives us ways to stay on campus throughout the weekend.
