M24 Campout

M24 Yearly

This is the original event that ever took place. It was designed to take men away for 24 hours and see what condition the hearts of ordinary men really are. Men leave the home and spend 24 hours with other men who are trying to imitate Christ. The 24 hours goes by fast but many things are highlights. The most talked about time is at the cross. This is where men get a chance to refresh others with words of affirmation on how they have impacted one another’s lives for Christ. Men simply give an orange to another in appreciation for “living it out!” Many times we ask the men to leave their “stuff” at the cross. Jesus died for all our sins and too often we keep carrying the sin around. Leaving it at the foot of the cross is symbolic of choosing to give the sin up and flee from it.

Another highlight is the bracelet ceremony. Men are asked to stand and come forward and be bold professing that they are men of God. When asked they shout “absolutely.” Men all over Bakersfield are wearing their “MAN OF GOD” bracelets as a sign of their proud faith in Jesus Christ. Mens' lives are changed in this 24 hour period like no other 24 hours. Men discover that the closer they get in the proximity of Jesus, their lives change.
