Christ in the Rockies does just that. This unique experience for fathers and sons creates an environment for attendees—young and not as young—to grow, be challenged and learn what God’s vision for fatherhood, parenting and being a man is all about. This summer, the experience kicks off June 13 in the beautiful mountains of Estes, CO. Hiking, rock climbing and building are just a few of the items on a schedule that’s packed with ample teaching time and adventure time. The age of attendees starts at 14 and goes up from there, creating a cool blend of multi-generational father- son pairings. Here’s what participants are saying about their time in the Rockies… “I want to thank you for an outstanding adventure in life and the pursuit of biblical manhood. This experience was outstanding. Everything was carefully planned and thought through to provide the best trip possible. The staff was amazing. They modeled the values they taught. The times with our sons allowed us to take strategic steps in our relationships with them and in their individual pursuit of becoming God’s man. I would highly recommend it!” – Jeff B. “CITR exceeded my expectations! Something special happened this week between my son Chris and me... and among a group of men and young men who had never met before. The Holy Spirit was present and hearts were knit together. I thank God that you caught the vision to restore the hearts of sons to their fathers and the hearts of fathers to their sons. I left Christ in the Rockies with a sense that this was accomplished… and more!” – Herb M.
