Men's Advance Banner


We love Banning Mills for our men's advance. It is in a beautiful setting with a creek running through the property. There is plenty to do and we are looking forward to meeting with all the men to hear what God wants to say to us in this hour. Please come with an expectant heart.

Since we will be going in the summer, the pool will be open so bring your suits.
