The Pilgrim Pines Men’s Retreat is designed to ignite your passion to live for Christ. Through engaging worship, practical teaching, spiritual direction and great fun we take an exciting journey together as men over a Friday night through Sunday noon. You will be challenged through worship & teaching to live a life of integrity. The Men’s Retreat always provides a great time of outdoor recreation on beautiful Swanzey Lake.  Bring a friend along. Everyone, bring one.

We encourage groups of men to see and use this retreat as part of their church’s ministry for men. Come and be refreshed. Come and be renewed.

OUR SPEAKER: Kevin Butcher


Kevin Butcher was a lead pastor for 35 years - most recently the founding and lead pastor of Hope Community Church of Detroit, a messy fellowship of human beings from every kind of racial, economic, and educational background who own their emptiness and pursue healing through the love of God in Jesus Christ.  In 2018, after 16 years at Hope, Kevin launched and became the executive director of Rooted Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit designed to come alongside isolated and discouraged pastors.  

Kevin is passionate about helping believers live in authentic community — across racial, socioeconomic and all lines of division — learning to truly love one another in the chaos of real relationships, learning to celebrate our differences, and learning to stay together even when we don't like one another – so that the world will see a living picture of Jesus Christ.

He is also passionate about helping believers find healing and freedom from childhood wounds — the ones that often keep us trapped, living addictively and in deep dysfunction – unable to experience true freedom in Christ. Kevin has come to believe this kind of deep healing comes only through personal, transformational experience with the powerful love of God in Jesus Christ.   

Kevin is the author of "Choose and Choose Again: the Brave Act of Returning to God's Love" [NavPress, 2016], has written numerous articles and shared the message of the Father’s love in 12 different countries.  In his spare time, he loves to read, lift weights, watch live sports, write and hang out with his wife of 42 years and best friend, Carla.  They both deeply love their 3 grown daughters, sons-in-law, and 4 grandchildren - and visit them every chance they get!
