How to Be a Blessing to Your Pastor

Iowa Men's Retreat

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa—Four hundred men from across Iowa and beyond enjoyed an annual Men’s Retreat at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp on the north shore of Clear Lake.

In addition to enjoying good food and fellowship, the men were challenged by Jonathan Richards, a Christian business owner from Southbrook Baptist Church, Wadena, Minn., who spoke three times on “A Practical Guide on How to be a Blessing to Your Pastor and Family.” Richards has a ministry of providing vehicles at cost to full-time Christian servants; to date he has helped find 300 vehicles for workers in 30 states and four continents.

Great weather allowed the men to participate in various activities including a zip line, a climbing wall, swimming, boating, and skiing. The men gave an offering of $5,300 for the kitchen and café being developed in the basement of Jensen Hall, which will allow for enlarged winter retreats and enhanced summer camps.
