Texas March Expedition 2024

Iron Horse Ranch, Somerville TX
March 21-24, 2024

We know how hard it is for men to unplug and get away for days on end, which is why we have created a two and a half day Texas March Expedition just two hours from Houston, Texas. It’s a great chance to connect with other men and God in new ways. The weekend will be filled with a powerful blending of teaching sessions, film clips, and guided periods of reflection in the outdoors.

The Expedition will be held at the Iron Horse Ranch – an exclusive, privately owned ranch located in Brenham, Texas, less than two hours drive from Houston. It is a chance to get away in the outdoors, enjoy the adventures of skeet shooting, bass fishing, hiking and more. This Expedition is designed for men who have never been on an Expedition. It is also an opportunity for those who have joined us before to come again and refresh themselves with the message. If you want to bring a friend, this is a great way to include them in what you have experienced.  80% of men who have attended say it’s some of the best and most powerful days of their lives.

A Note about Covid-19

For this event we will not have any COVID related restrictions. Specifically, there will be no face mask wearing because we have found that masks greatly prohibit meaningful connection and interaction among participants. There will also be no social distancing, no limited attendance, no vaccination requirements, or status checking. 

All participants understand this and participate at their own risk and liability.  We simply ask that participants take common sense measures before attending and if showing transmissible symptoms within 24 hours of attendance to politely stay back entirely or until receiving appropriate medical clearance. If you need to cancel due to COVID symptoms we will issue you a refund.

If you are concerned about catching COVID and are uncomfortable coming on the event in light of our COVID policy listed above, we ask that you postpone attending until a future date when you would feel more comfortable attending.
