Episode 64 - Jay's House & Lifestyle Champion Weekend
The darkest day of my life was May 28, 1987 – that was the day we had to say goodbye to my son Jay. This is because an emergency room physician made an error while calculating a dosage for potassium, that was required in order to balance Jay’s electrolytes, prior to an emergency appendectomy.
The goal of “Jay’s House of Restoration” is to memorialize Jay, a son that I loved deeply whose smile and vibrant personality would light up a room, by establishing a home for young men who are struggling to survive in their current settings.
Jay’s 40th birthday would have been on April 15, 2022, and my plan is to dedicate this house and the program in loving memory.
Jay's House & Lifestyle Champion Weekend
This group supports the annual Lifestyle Champion Weekend retreats for men. The weekend retreats start Friday evening, continue from morning to evening on Saturday, and conclude with a Sunday morning worship service.
God has placed a Lifestyle Champion within each of us that's waiting to be revealed. The weekend retreats will encourage, challenge, and guide you toward seeing that champion revealed!
The three-weekend retreats for the 2021-2022 season are planned as follows: the Twin Cities area gathering will be on November 5-7, the Upper Midwest weekend is planned for November 12-14, and the Central Florida weekend is scheduled for January 14-16, 2022
Friday night session will start with music and some life-changing ideas to consider. Saturday is an intense day of biblical teaching, guidance for each man to consider, combined with small group accountability sessions, and in the evening a powerful talk by a locally known celebrity with a recovery journey to share.
Sunday morning will be worship and a message on surrender, healing, and how to experience the lifestyle champion in your daily life.
Final cost not set yet: $250 to $285 for the weekend, dinner Friday, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and a To-Go lunch on Sunday.
