Vineyard NW Men's Retreat
Friday, May 3, 2013 at 3:00 PM - Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 2:00 PM (PDT)
"Men of Peace, Hope, & Courage"
What's it all about?
Our culture seeks to mold men with its values of enablement and self-centeredness; this cultural formation has resulted in men always longing for more but being disappointed by the lack of dreams being fulfilled or finding out that the dreams achieved left them empty – as Henry Thoreau’s telling word describes it; “Most men live their lives of quiet desperation.”
BUT Christ came to set men free – this conference is about identifying barriers and lies that have held us back from our destiny, letting God heal these lies, and being empowered afresh to lay hold of our Kingdom mission and destiny.
Phil Strout, the new National Director of Vineyard USA.
Phil and Janet, as young newlyweds were invited to serve on the staff of Life Ministries, a mission group, which served as an early training ground in missional thinking, cross cultural experience, and faith living.
In 1983, upon graduation from bible school in Massachusetts, with a focus on pastoral studies, Phil led a church planting team to South America. Phil is a fluent Spanish speaker and identifies greatly with the churches in the Hispanic world. It was in the context of mission that Phil met John Wimber and the Vineyard via cassette tape. It was then that he heard the Lord say, “Oh, and by the way, this is your tribe!”
The Strout family returned to Maine in the early ‘90’s and in 1993 they planted the Greater Portland Vineyard Church in Maine’s largest city. From 2001-2003 Phil worked for Vineyard USA in the development of mission partnerships and taught “The Father’s Heart for the Nations” workshops in local Vineyard churches across the country. Phil completed his Masters in Ministry at St. Stephen’s University in Canada in 2004. During that time, his book, “God’s Relentless Pursuit, Discovering God’s Heart for Humanity” was published. In 2004, Phil was asked to serve as Senior Pastor of the Pathway Vineyard Church in Lewiston, ME. It is a church with a strong sense of mission with “a divine assignment to be a part of the redemptive history of the state of Maine”.
From 2004-2011 Phil has served the Vineyard as the Regional Overseer for the Eastern Region and on the National Board. Phil was confirmed as the National Director of Vineyard USA on September 12, 2012.
