Michigan's UP Cru Retreat

  September 24-26, 2021

Fall Retreat 2021

September 24-26, 2021
Retreat is an opportunity to spend a weekend away from school and campus to spend time with other believers and focus on God. It is a potentially life changing experience.

Speaker: Dan Flynn

Dan is a great communicator. 

Dan loves words, guzzle hazelnut coffee, chew 5,700 levels of Candy Crush (without spending a dime – I'm tenacious!) and daily eat the same breakfast cereal for over 20 years! (Post's Great Grains: Pecans, Dates and Raisins). God has gifted me with my precious wife, Paula, and three adult children.

He is investing his life to do the following:

  • speak everywhere of my Hero Jesus,
  • sherpa communicators to speak effectively,
  • scribe about Jesus, the Christian life, and communication excellence,
  • shepherd young believers for the sake of the world.

He and Paula were part of Cru staff, working with students for 37 years.
