- Annual Fall Retreat
A highlight of the year is the Annual Men’s Fall Retreat which is held each October at Deer Valley Ranch near Buena Vista, Colorado. Situated in a beautiful mountain setting, Deer Valley Ranch provides great accommodations and excellent food served by a caring staff. The retreat features good fellowship with other Southern Gables men, worship, a speaker on a timely topic, sports, relaxation and fun activities for every man. Our 2013 retreat will be October 4-6.

- Voice of Sages
For four Saturdays during the first quarter of each year, Men’s Ministries hosts a great breakfast and time of fellowship, followed by one of the elder “sages” of the church sharing his life story within the context of God’s greater story and a question and answer time. Audio recordings of current and previous years’ speakers are available through the Voice of Sages link on the right.
