We consistently hear mentors say Story Retreat was the most meaningful thing in the life of their groups. We think it’s absolutely crucial to the process. And the more time you can take the better. What happens on the Story Retreat will set the tone for the rest of your season, so it’s worth the investment of time if you can make it a weekend thing or at least an overnight. Being able to get away for life and its distractions for a little bit gives guys space to open up and bond.
