Event description


This year's theme is FIERCE MEN of the WORD!

God’s Word is alive and active! In fact, in our spiritual arsenal, the Word is our “sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6.17). At its very core, the Word of God is centered around Jesus Christ and His power to transform us. We possess a powerful weapon, one that can battle the forces of evil by teaching us how to live in faith and righteousness. However, a sword is no good if it remains in its sheath, unused, and collecting dust. This year’s conference will prepare and equip men to become master “swordsmen” of Christ founded on 2 Timothy 3.16-17.

We pray you will join us for a great weekend of worship, time in the word, fun, and rich fellowship.


We still have a few more spots available. If you are interested in attending the retreat, please contact David Estrada, at destrada@worldimpact.org for more information.

Who sponsors this event?

World Impact, in partnership with The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI), sponsors the SIAFU men’s and women’s retreats. World Impact is a Christian missions organization committed to facilitating church planting movements by evangelizing, equipping and empowering America’s unchurched urban poor. World Impact has sites across the country from Los Angeles, CA to Wichita, KS to Newark, NJ and other cities in between. This retreat is specifically sponsored by our World Impact ministry in Dallas, Texas.

You call this a "SIAFU" Retreat? What is SIAFU?

The SIAFU Network is a national association of chapters anchored in local urban churches and ministries dedicated to the city. These chapters are designed to help identify, equip and release spiritually qualified servant leaders to reach and transform our neediest, unreached communities in urban America. SIAFU is an African ant that is vulnerable and alone, but mighty when formed into an army. We use the image of the SIAFU ant to underscore our belief that the local church community is God's chosen agent to represent His invincible kingdom, and that individuals by themselves are at risk to attack, discouragement , and failure. Our SIAFU Retreats (both men's and women's) are designed specifically to give attendees the opportunity to connect with others in your locale, state, and region, integrating you with other churches and believers who share your vision and commitment to transforming the city in Christ's name.

What if my job calls at the last minute and I can’t make it, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, we cannot issue any refunds. However, you can talk to your church/group leader about finding another man to take your place and cover the cost.

Contact David Estrada destrada@worldimpact.org with any other questions.
