A Hero's Journey is a 24 hour long epic event for men. We spend time in nature, away from the hustle and bustle of life. Free from electronics and distractions. We hike along a trail, sleep in tents, hear amazing teaching and play some crazy games. Be challenged and refreshed in your faith. Walk away feeling encouraged to become all that God has called you to be. A strong man and "Hero" in your marriage, in your family, and in your community. Take the time out and invest in yourself. Your family will thank you!! Read some of the personal testimonies below.
We meet at a trail head on Friday evening, after registration and a few announcements we hit the trail. We end up at basecamp for the evening where we set up camp. We enjoy worship, teaching, food, and fellowship. On Saturday afternoon after games we hike back out to conclude the event. Normal backpacking gear is required, (tent, sleeping bag, pad, etc..) all food is supplied. If gear is needed MTB offers gear to borrow so don't let that be a hindrance. The cost is $50 (non refundable) which includes food, permits, and event T-shirt. Register Today!!
Friday April 30th 2021. Forty men left on a journey seeking encouragement and direction on how to be all that God has intended them to be. Twenty-four hours later they return as Hero's! Men who have been called and challenged to be a new kind of Man in their homes, relationships, and in their communities. They walked a Hero's Journey!
This was an amazing event filled with challenge, encouragement, and a renewed sense of purpose. Forty men participated in the inaugural 'A Hero's Journey' that took place on the beautiful North Country Trail in Newaygo County. The weather was exceptional, the wind blew while the sun warmed throughout the day.
These men built a strong brotherhood as they traversed the landscape, battled against each other in competition and worshipped in song throughout the weekend. The Holy Spirit fell upon the very ground they walked, they were challenged and encouraged to be their own Hero. The messages provided real life examples and challenge. God was exalted and men's lives were changed forever!
This video is from our very first Hero's Journey event in April of 2021. This is Michigan Trail brothers premier event held each year. To learn more about this epic event contact me here. A Big 'Thank you' to Richard for the great video.
“Going into the weekend I had no idea what to expect, but God knew exactly what He was doing. I needed to be there. I needed to be reminded about what a Godly man looks like and how I can apply that to my work, relationships, and marriage. I was reminded to have more grace with my wife and love her like Jesus loves me. It was amazing to be surrounded by brothers fellowshipping, worshipping, and growing in Christ together. Thank you, Hero’s Journey!”
"If I could repeat this event I absolutely would. Since I've come home I have prayed on my knees with my wife, my son and two daughters. I'm trying to be more desperate about going to God for them. Like you said, "the enemy is not going to give up so it is time that I WAKE UP!"
