October 27-29, 2023

This year, we plan to facilitate an annual event where men from all over can come and be reminded of what life with Christ looks like as a son of God, and a brother to others. Frontier Lodge is excited to partner with speakers from all over Alberta who have been training and disciplining men for many years. It is our hope that you will come and experience a dynamic positive change like the hundreds of men that have gone before. It is a weekend designed for one purpose, for you to experience freedom in Jesus like you may have never experienced before.
