Romans Retreat – August 17-19, 2018 (Register Here) The Romans weekend is a favorite here at The Hill.  It’s like going back to your roots for the weekend.  And honestly, the principles found in Romans 1-8 are the roots of this ministry.  We’ll revisit your identity in Christ, eradication of the old self, justification by faith, freedom from the power of sin, and more.

Patrick Johnson and Rick Underhill will lead our study through the first eight chapters of Romans this year. After years of racing through Romans to get done by Saturday afternoon, we’ve decided to slow the pace down a bit and enjoy the journey. We will begin at 7:00 pm Friday night and we’ll end around 10:00 am Sunday morning with a discussion of the materials covered. Actual coverage of Romans 1-8 will likely be completed on Saturday night. Whether you are new to the book of Romans or just need a review of the life-changing principles within, you are sure to enjoy Rick and Patrick’s insight and knowledge of the Scriptures.

The retreat begins Friday evening at 7:00 pm and ends Sunday morning at 10:00 am.  To hear audio from Patrick teaching a prior year’s retreat click here and scroll down to the 2016 Romans Retreat.  You’ll also find teaching from Rick at the same location.

Winter College Retreat – January 4-6, 2019, ***Registration Required!*** The Winter College Retreat is an annual gathering of students that are hungry for truth, a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, and fellowship with others in a similar pursuit.  They come to spend time with the Lord, to be encouraged, to expend themselves in worship, and to be a part of blessing others.

Men’s Retreat – April 27-29, 2018 (Register Here) Our annual Men’s Retreat for fathers, their sons, and single men of all ages.

The Men’s Retreat is a gathering of men passionate about faith in Jesus.  Sometimes intense, sometimes relaxed–it’s a reflection of the men who attend and the bold way that Jesus lives through them.   The young and old, rich and poor, those with status, those with none, come together as friends to worship Him with whom they share a common bond.  They come to teach and learn, to serve and be served, to study, to relax and drink deeply of fellowship with one another.

Depart from your routine and join us for this retreat. You’ll be glad you did.

Two old friends of the ministry, Neb Hayden and Preston Gillham, will be teaching at this upcoming Men’s Retreat. Pres has become a regular around here again. He brings fresh insights straight from time spent with Jesus, and while his dry wit also comes from Jesus, it probably gets filtered through Texas. Neb has not been to The Hill in a while, but is a familiar name around here. Neb holds the honor of making Bob Warren laugh harder than anyone remembers.

The Men’s Retreat is held at The Hill, 989 Hardin Wadesboro Road, in Hardin, KY. It begins at 7:00 pm on April 27th and goes through Sunday, April 29th, 10:00 am.  There is no charge for the weekend.  No childcare is provided.

 Rooted & Grounded College/Young Adult Conference – May 17-19, 2018  (Register Here)

For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man; so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fulness of God.  (Ephesians 3:17-19)

Hosting an extended conference for college-age (18-25) adults who are focused and intentional in their walk with Jesus has been a long-time vision.  The goal is to provide these young adults access to the collective wisdom of successful Christian men and women, helping them to navigate today’s culture.

This intensive three-day discipleship conference will be led by men and women who have their hearts set on training this generation.  They are teachers, trainers, mentors, and disciplers first, but some are also called pastor, doctor, lawyer or professor.  Each will bring an unique perspective to what a believer in this generation should know when facing our current culture. Speakers for this event include: Brian Crall, Martin Severns, Elliott Tenpenny, Greg Northcutt, Jim Morgan, Rick Underhill, Ellen Couch, Jonathan Poe, and Dave Gibson.  To read more about the presenters, click here.

The cost for the conference is $125 with housing/$100 without housing.  The registration deadline is May 9th.  (Register Here)  Meals and snacks are included each day.

Our dorms will open prior to the conference on Wednesday, May 16, at 4:00 pm for those traveling from outside the local area who might need accommodations.

The conference will begin Thursday morning at 8:30 am.  Breakfast and check in will start at 7:30 am.
