REGISTER NOW

WELCOME

Please join us for the 2017 NCS National Retreat. Our theme this year is Broken Together. We are all broken, in a variety of ways - this is a truth that we have to come to terms with. However, our hope is that we address our brokenness together. This is the essence of NCS - living life together and in community transforms us. Knowing that you can’t deal with something you can’t acknowledge, we want to create space for honesty and vulnerability as a movement of men.

Please join us in DC this year where we will be led in first-rate worship by Kevin Singleton from Hillsong NYC and gather together in the name of Jesus to hear from a great line-up of speakers with hope of real refreshment. You can read about our schedule and line-up below. Not only have we expanded our Industry Gatherings on Saturday morning, as the men last year really enjoyed those, but we have worked hard to get the price down as low as we can. We know that cost can be an obstacle to many of you and our sincere hope is to make it as affordable as possible.
