This year, the Aspen Men’s Conference is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The hearts of many men have been touched through the teaching and fellowship at this annual conference held in the mountains of Colorado.
The dates this year are October 6 through 9, and the conference is presented by Cornerstone Church of Glenview, Illinois.
The theme of this year’s conference is Freedom Through Our Identity in Christ (John 8:36). At our core, as men, we are wild. We test ways to set ourselves free and try different ways to find our true and individual identity. God, who designed us in this way, uses circumstances in our everyday lives to bring us closer to Him. He uses our understanding of one’s self to help us establish our true identity. During this retreat, we will learn about our true calling and how we can be set free.

We are privileged to have R.A. Atanus as our conference speaker. R.A. has an amazing story that you won’t want to miss. While in his early teens, he and his family left Iran due to religious persecution. Shortly after arriving in the United States, R.A. accepted Christ after searching what it meant to be a true man. R.A. has an Electronic Engineering Degree from Devry Institute of Technology, an MBA from Northwestern University Kellogg Business School and a Master of Arts in Ministry from Trinity International University. As a senior executive at NEC and Samsung, he has lived in Japan and traveled extensively throughout the Far East and Europe. R.A. is currently the Executive Pastor at South Park Church in Park Ridge, Illinois, and has a heart for men. Ministering to them, he helped grow the men’s ministry program which now numbers over 100 men each week.

The conference will be a wonderful opportunity to fellowship with men from other parts of the country as we learn how to incorporate a Christian mindset into our everyday lives. There will be plenty of free time as we will be hiking in the mountains and enjoying the camaraderie of our fellow brothers in Christ. Great time to worship as members of Abel’s Offering will be leading, wonderful teaching and sharing, along with the beauty of God’s creation, make this a weekend you won’t want to miss.
