Edge Events

What does an Edge weekend look like?

  • Weekends start at 6PM on Friday and finish around 2PM on Sunday.

  • The cost of the weekend varies by location due to pricing of the facilities we use. Our goal is to keep the cost as low as possible for each weekend; pricing covers the cost of the facility, materials, and meals.

Indiana, Michigan and Tennessee Weekends

The Next Level for Edge Men

Our lives are filled with opportunities and choices, each having far-reaching effects for our futures. The initial Edge Venture Weekend Experience is a life-changing stop on our journeys. But as we pursue God’s will for our lives, we must continue to choose authentic brotherhood, receiving affirmation and support along the way.


Edge Connect is a second-level experience for men who have already attended the initial Edge Venture Weekend Experience.  It will be beneficial for every Edge man, from a recent Edge graduate to the experienced volunteer staff member.

The Edge Connect Experience is an event providing you an opportunity to:

  • Build and nourish meaningful relationships with Edge brothers

  • Examine things that may be slowing down or even stopping your healing and growth

  • Consider and pursue the next chapter of growth God is preparing you fo

  • Be strengthened in your ability to weather the storms of life




The fee to attend Edge Connect is $125. This will help to cover the costs of facility use, materials, and meals. Scholarships may be available to men with financial need.


Edge Connect Weekends are limited to 18 participants, so please register quickly! Don’t miss this opportunity to open the door to the next chapter of God’s plan for your life.
