This Saturday is the 3rd of 4 Saturdays between now and Boot Camp in May where we will be inviting Every Man in the BANDO Community to TRAIN with us. Our Location is our usual one:
At Westside Center 10745 Westside Way Alpharetta, GA 30004
It is Extended BANDO because we will be meeting from 7:00am until 1:00pm (Lunch included for all who stay past the usual 9:30 conclusion).
Who can participate in Extended BANDO?
These TRAINING sessions (this one and the last one in April) are open to every man in the 4Streams Community. We are hoping to Train and Take 50+ Coaches with us to Strong Rock Retreat for a life changing weekend.
What if I can't stay past 9:30?
That's fine! We'll take a short break and re-convene for our Coach Training time. I'll get a list of all who plan to stay so we can have lunch brought in. We understand that people have busy lives... and it's OK if you can't stay.
What if I have never been to a Weekend Retreat w/ 4Streams?
Doesn't matter. We think that training our team of men in this community in the What? Why?and How? of Coaching on a Weekend will benefit every man for the rest of his life. If you haven't been on a Wild at Heart Boot Camp of some kind before, you'll want to come to this one -- as an Attendee. And we hope that you'll still want to take advantage of being trained to listen to God and to another man's story during our Extended BANDO training days.
Why do we TRAIN? We invest time and energy into 'growing up in Christ'. We have been given an unusual opportunity to expose men to the "More LIFE" that Jesus talks about in John 10:10. The payback is amazing. And it takes intentionality.
This is, perhaps, my favorite scene from the HBO Series, Band of Brothers. Prior to the Battle of the Bulge, Captain Dick Winters expresses the mindset of Easy Company as they realize that they are surrounded by enemy troops. Come see what we mean...
We are Paratroopers. We're supposed to be surrounded.
