Chili & Chainsaws

Saturday, April 6, 2019

7am - 2pm

Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp

(Meeting at Cooper Road Campus)

 

Hey guys, we know you love Chili and we believe that some of you also LOVE Chainsaws. How about we put those two passions together at our Chili & Chainsaws event. On Saturday April 6th we will head up to Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp to cut and slip some wood in preparation for Man Camp 3.0 and, of course, enjoy some chili and fellowship.

Let's make it a friendly competition and have a Chili Cook-off and bring our favorite Chili recipe. 

Water and paper-ware will be provided.  

Things to bring:  Your favorite Chili, gloves, boots appropriate for working outdoors.  Chainsaw and axe if you have them.

Please respond to Jeff Best at mancampvc@gmail.com if you intend on bringing a chainsaw and/or Chili or have any questions about the event.

Time: 7:00am - 2:00pm  

Registration ends on April 5th.

* Note, we will be leaving the Vineyard parking lot at 7:00am and plan on leaving Pleasant Hill for home around 2:00pm.

Man Camp 3.0

Pack your bags, grab your tents, and let's get ready to camp in the great outdoors.  This will be a time to laugh, compete, tell stories, make pals, and talk to God.  Man Camp was designed to help dudes take time to get away from the hustle and stress of life, decompress and kick back, and provide a safe place to relax and just be yourself with a bunch of other dudes. Each camper will be part of a unit made up of 6-8 dudes, led by a Trip Captain. Worship band and recording artist, Truslow, will lead us in worship once again throughout the weekend.

We will have a group and Trip Captain specifically for senior gentlemen and those who have limited mobility.

*Please note that registration will not be open the last two weeks prior to Man Camp to allow Trip Captains sufficient time to contact their unit and make arrangements for a great weekend for everyone.  So please sign up early to ensure your spot and be able to select your Trip Captain.  Let's spread the word and invite your friends to experience God in a new way and make this the best Man Camp yet.

**If you were a previous Trip Captain or MASH Unit guy, and/or would be interested in serving in either capacity please email Jeff Best at Mancampvc@gmail.com prior to registering.

Man Camp FAQ

How much is it?
MAN CAMP is $60.00.

How old do I need to be to attend MAN CAMP?
The minimum age for MAN CAMP is 18. (MAN CAMP is an adults only adventure).

What if I’ve never camped before?
No problem. This trip is all about getting outside your comfort zone, alongside other men. 80% of the men who come to Man Camp have never camped before.  We’re here to challenge you and encourage you, whether you’ve camped for decades or don’t own a tent. When we trade convenience, comfort and security for the great unknown, we’re pretty much guaranteed to grow.

What is the schedule?
While we do have a planned schedule for a full weekend experience with God and other men, we want to give enough room for flexibility and for God to move as He desires, so no schedule will be posted.  Just come, relax, have fun and go with the flow.  

What food should I bring and will any be provided?
We will provide lunch for everyone on Saturday.  Each unit trip captain will coordinate with his unit and they will determine what they will be eating and who will bring what.  Basically, each camper will be responsible for his breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and Dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.

What if I don’t have a tent?
No worries, we’ve got you covered.  Let your trip captain know you will need a tent to sleep in and he will arrange for you to sleep in a tent provided by another man in your unit. 

What should I bring?
Once you sign up you will be provided with a list of items you need and a list your unit will need.  You will be contacted by your trip captain to coordinate the items your unit will need and arrange food.  If you don’t have some items that you need and are not able to borrow or purchase them, then let your trip captain know and others in your unit may be able to help out.  Yes, you will be bringing your own chair to sit around the fire.  (Attachment inside of registration)

What if I don’t know anybody?
Perfect! You’ll make friends in no time. Every man camper will be assigned a unit: a group of 6 - 7 other guys, led by a trip captain. You’ll do everything with your unit: get outfitted, bring food, set up camp, compete and generally solve problems. You are going to be good friends with your unit by the time this trip is over.  You will have the opportunity to sign up for a specific trip captain in a few weeks and we will let you know when that registration is open.

What if I don't go to Vineyard?
Cool! You'll still love it. Tons of other guys who don't call Vineyard home will be there. MAN CAMP is powered by Vineyard but the movement is way bigger than that.

What do I need to bring and how do I get it up to camp?
Once you’re signed up, we’ll send you a full list. But the short version is: one duffel bag and one backpack, filled with camping gear, a chair, dry clothes and food. *Note that you will be carrying all your own gear about 1 mile up to base camp, so pack accordingly, it is only 2 nights.  (Attachment inside of registration)

How long is it?
From Friday evening to around 1pm on Sunday afternoon and there will not be time for extra activities on your own.
 
What time do I need to be there on Friday?
Ingress will be available from 4:00-6:30 pm. If you arrive early you'll be directed to a staging area until 4:00.  As long as you are inside the gate by 6:30, you're good. Your entire Unit must be present to begin the hike in.

What if I have to leave early?
You’re in for the whole deal if you go. The entire event is a communal experience.

What if it rains?
Then we’ll probably get wet.

What if it snows?
Snow is a lot like rain, but colder.

What are we doing?
Sleeping outside. Building fires. Laughing. Competing. Splitting wood. Drinking malted beverages (if we’re old enough). BYOing pretty much everything. Testing our strength. Telling stories. Making pals. Talking to God. Doing life together.

Will there be alcohol at this event?
Yes. While it is certainly not the focus, alcohol will be permitted. 

Is this event tax-deductible?
Sorry, no.

Can I buy a block of tickets for my buddies?
Nope.  We require that each man sign up and commit individually (because that’s what men do) Plus, everybody has to sign the waiver electronically. Do you trust your buddy to sign your life away? (Just saying.)

What if I sign up, and then cancel at the last minute?
Tickets are non-refundable. If you cancel, we’ll give your spot to someone on the waiting list.

What if there’s an emergency at home while I’m gone?
We’ll have a way for your family to reach you (and you them) if there’s an emergency. And by emergency we don’t mean the cable goes out or Buster wins his football game.

Roots for Men

Every Thursday

7:30 - 9:30pm

 

This is a recovery group for those that struggle with life-controlling addictions such as drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, work, or anything else that keeps you from experiencing the abundant life God wants for you. 

Come join us as we share our experiences, lift each other up, and find hope and healing as we walk with Jesus one day at a time.  Although we are a Biblically based group, you do not need to be a Christian to attend.  We are here to walk through recovery with you!

For more information please contact: Tom Brankamp

180 exists to help men who struggle with sexual brokenness find healing through Jesus and His Holy Spirit and grow in a healthy relationship with God our Father. This ongoing ministry is open to all men, meets weekly throughout the year, and emphasizes both the healing power of God AND the personal responsibility of men to do whatever it takes to live a life of purity.  The evening includes worship, a teaching time, small group accountability, mentoring, and healing prayer.
