Men's Retreat 2017

Cooperstown Bible Camp


Men’s Retreat (March 3-5, 2017)

Integrity-Based Success

Mel will be sharing Biblical truths and a lifetime of

personal insights for deliberate, purposeful living.

Romans 12:2 (NLT) Don’t copy the behavior and

customs of this world, but let God transform you into

a new person by changing the way you think. Then

you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is

good and pleasing and perfect.

We will explore the Five Foundational Principles of

Integrity-Based Success1, using the Mackinac bridge

as a memorable metaphor to reinforce Biblical truth.

These timeless principles apply equally in both our

personal lives and our business lives – at home and at

work. Are you a leader? Look to your character and

conscience for evidence. Are you a man of integrity?

Look to your track record for honesty and

trustworthiness. Leadership is the net sum of character

and conscience. Personal integrity is the net sum of

honesty and trustworthiness.
