Men's Retreat

DATE: Begins with supper on Thursday at 5PM. Ends after lunch on Saturday. TIME: 04/26/2018

Calvary Baptist Church will hold its Annual Men's Retreat at the Pittston Farm from Thursday April 26 through Saturday April 28, 2018.

This year's speaker will be Birch Champeon, Missionary Translator.


Birch Champeon is a missionary working in Asia, Africa, and South America with Bibles International.  Birch and his wife Connie have two teen boys, Warren and Rowan.  They have traveled extensively serving churches by training Bible translators. 

Birch was born in Maine and came to Christ through the ministry of Isaiah Hill and Sebec Corner Baptist Church. Birch committed his life to missions and preaching as a child while his father, Don Champeon, was in seminary. Birch graduated from Bob Jones University with a bachelor’s in computer science. He worked professionally for five years before going into ministry with Bibles International.  He serves as a technical coordinator there. His role includes developing tools to assist Bible translators in checking their translations and training translators to use the computer and Bible translation software.  

Birch has a deep burden for men in the church. It is his desire to see men move from spectator to soldier. 



Registration is now CLOSED.  HOWEVER, registrations postmarked April 4 or later will be held PENDING A CANCELLATION.
