The Does God Exist? Week-Long Retreat for 2009

For many years the Does God Exist? program has offered summer programs:  some in the field, and some in a classroom setting--both designed to help Christians train to be more effective in using apologetics to build faith and answer questions.  This summer we are offering four programs in this area.  The field programs are at such locations as the Grand Canyon and the canyonlands area in Arizona and Utah, and on the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Equador in South America.  The classroom programs have taken place at some local college facilities or church buildings near our offices.  There are no charges by Does God Exist? for these programs.  The only costs are those from the companies that provide services that we use on the trips or for the buildings used, such as for lodging, transportation, entrance fees, and some meals.

This summer besides the several field trips, we are having a Week-Long Retreat.  The retreat will be August 10-14, 2009.  We will have all-day sessions on faith and science with John Clayton.  These sessions will comprise of lessons, classes, lab exercises, and devotionals.

The retreat will take place at the Michiana Christian Service Camp north of Niles, Michigan.

Anyone interested in apologetics can attend.  The sessions will be aimed at the non-science person who wants to learn.  There is no age limit on who can attend.  The camp has recreational facilities available for all ages.

What cost there will be at the camp will be for lodging and meals.  There are cabins, recreational vehicle sites, and dorms available on a first come first served basis.  The cost for lodging will be between $10.00 and $20.00 per night.  Meals (three per day) will cost $15.00 per day.   There will be no charge for materials supplied by the Does God Exist? program or the instruction by John Clayton.

Registration is required.  Contact us for a registration/reservation form and an information packet at:  John Clayton, 1555 Echo Valley Dr., Niles, MI 49120-8738 (, or 269-687-9426, or FAX 269-687-9431).  For a tentative schedule of the retreat, information on the available lodging, and  registration form, please click here for a PDF file of this information.
