God’s creation was perfected in six days and on the seventh day He rested. The importance of resting was emphatic in that God included it as part of His commandments. Even so God instructed all males of Israel to meet with Him three times a year…Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord God. – Exodus 23:17


OCTOBER 2, 2021 from 9AM - 11:30 AM Online


Since our last Mannafest Conference in June 2019, we have witnessed and experienced floods, ice storms, a global pandemic, social and political unrest, in addition to countless broken homes and marriages. Like a battle weary boxing match or a one-sided dominating football game, we sometimes need to take a time out.

Our vision for this year is to move towards a more intimate and specific men’s encounter that will help to foster both intimacy with God, transparency of men, and a weekend of fun and fellowship. This year’s theme “Time-Out” will focus upon how we as men need to refocus, refresh, reflect, rethink, and reassess the trajectory of our lives. 

Manna-Retreat will take place online.   This retreat is open to 250 men representing four churches in the Houston and surrounding areas; Crossover Bible Fellowship, Harvest Point Fellowship, Higher Expectations, and Shine Bible Fellowship.
