Talks & Teachings

Currently being updated !

OVER THE YEARS we have experienced a rich banquet of teachings at our Weekends Away for Men from solid Christian speakers from around the world. Not only did we want to make these more accessible to men who have attended the weekends, but we also wanted to share them with others. So, here they are.

You may want to consider burning a talk or two to a CD or downloading it onto your mp3/mp4 player or iPod. Alternatively, you may wish to listen to these with a group of other guys and make an evening of it.


Downloadable talks can be found below in two settings:
(i) in WMA format (Windows Media Audio) and (ii) in mp3 format.

To download one of the talks below onto your computer, removeable disk, or to save it so as to later upload it onto an mp3 player or ipod, or to burn it to a CD or DVD:
