Evaluations Welcome



MMR 2017 is in the books.

If you were present this year I would like to invite you to give a word or two of evaluation.  You can do so by sending me an email (fbcftmojaveaz@ctaz.com) or by leaving a comment down below.

When you so do you can comment on the normal evaluation type questions such as

Rate the event on a scale of 1 to 10.

What was your favorite part of the event?

What was your least favorite part of the event?

Or you can approach some specific questions I have on my mind.

Did your group participate in the Emmaus Walk and did they find it useful?

Would you be okay with a shorter Sunday Schedule aimed at getting you out quicker, or do you prefer to stay for as long as possible?

Would you rather I skip the offering for Speaker/Music and just budget these parts or keep the offering and supplement from budget as possible?

Or if you felt the event changed your life in some way, such as you made an eternal decision or change, you could leave a brief testimony.


Prime Time

We are now in what I call prime time. This means it is finally time  for recruiting men to attend the retreat.  Hopefully you have already reserved slots, and now it is time to recruit men to fill those slots.  In order to help you do this let me remind you that we have a number of tools to use under the forms tab up above.

The newest tool is the PowerPoint slide which is available in standard and widescreen. This file is editable, and unless your Men’s Ministry Leader is named John Doe, you will need to change the contact name.  But of course, you can change anything else you need to adjust for your group as well.  Notice this lists the deadline as the last Sunday in March.  You can edit this, but it is essential that your church have the final payment to us and all the T-shirt sizes to us by April 5 so that we can turn in the T-shirt order. The date listed there was to allow your church time to gather and mail the info, knowing that we are outlying enough that the postal service can often take another day to arrive.

The coolest tool is the videos. The strongest draw you are likely to get for the event will be when men watch one of these videos.  You might show them during your Men’s Bible Study or even play them during the announcements. One was done during the retreat last year and is a little rougher all around.  The other was prepared later by the camp photographer and is more polished.

The most common tools are the posters, brochures and registration forms. These are in PDF you can print either in house or at a local business supply.  Our local place only charged 34 cents for each copy of the large posters we wanted. Put them up wherever men are likely to see.  I even put them up in between urinals in the men’s room.

We also have a number of different clip art pieces you can use if you want to include the event in your newsletter or produce your own materials.
