The Men’s Residence Hall students and deans enjoyed a device-free weekend bonding with each other on campus.
The central theme of the weekend was leadership. Jayden Anggormas, senior, said, “Each and every one of us are leaders, and we must let God influence us to be the best leaders.” In a mens-specific service, Pastor Goetz gave a sermon explaining how we can be better leaders, and the students watched several videos on the topic for vespers.
Before church on Sabbath, the guys enjoyed a competitive game of Bible trivia. “My favorite part of the dorm retreat was the Bible trivia that we had before Pastor Goetz’s sermon,” commented Kevin Perez, senior. “I enjoyed working with my team to try to find the answers for the questions, and although we tied, it was still fun.”
On Saturday afternoon, the guys broke into several different groups for a photo scavenger hunt. They were given a sheet of paper with riddles on it that they had to solve. When they solved the riddle, it explained the type of picture the group had to take at various locations around campus.
On Saturday night, the guys played a round of capture the flag in the dark. “I definitely loved playing capture the flag with all of the boys in the dorm,” explained Angel Villalobos, junior. “All the strategies and plans the boys would come up with surprised me and made me want to give it my all. It was a great time of togetherness!”
