California Chapter


In the fall of 2015, a few men from Bakersfield, California went to a Souly Business Retreat in Georgia after being invited by a close friend. These men witnessed God’s hands at work and the radical impact God had on everyone who attended. On their trip home, they began discussing what it may look like to host retreats in California. Over the next year, 80 men from California traveled to Georgia to attend and be prepared to serve at future California Souly Business retreats. The first Souly Business California was hosted in March of 2017 on Mt. Pinos and was completely full. Following the event, the excitement continued and future conferences were scheduled. We are excited to continue to host Souly Business retreats in California and hope you will attend.

Chapter Leadership

Ron Froehlich

Ron is the President of Froehlich Signature Homes, a single family, multi-family, office and commercial building company in Bakersfield, California, which he founded in 1987. He currently serves on the board of Influencers Bakersfield, a men’s ministry geared towards the purpose of teaching men how to have a personal, abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. Ron has four adult children and he and his wife, MaryAnn, are members of The Bridge Bible Church in Bakersfield.

James Dyck

James moved to Bakersfield, California in 2014 while working for an oil and gas company as he pursued opportunities to climb the corporate ladder as a professional engineer with multiple degrees. He recognized there was more to this life than his career and left the corporate life to work for a local residential and commercial real estate company. This company has provided James the time to coordinate Souly Business retreats in California while managing his work responsibilities. James has limited his ministry focus to Souly Business to ensure he has plenty of time to spend with his wife and three young girls.

Jeremy Hearron

Jeremy is a husband to his amazing wife Lee and father to his four children, Brock, Kendria, Samantha, and Kylie. He is a risk advisor in the insurance industry. He and his family attend the Bridge Bible Church where he assists in leading worship. Jeremy also loves to lead worship in any other facet he can. His life experience has led him to a place where he sees his life as worship. Whether it be in the workplace, at his home with family or anywhere, his desire is to have everything in his life be an act of worship to his amazing, never failing, always loving Savior.

Gregrey Marchand

Gregrey has two degrees and is a licensed contractor, running two successful businesses for the last 40 years. He is married for 25 years to an equally yoked soul mate.

My relationship with God, my wife, family, and other men was sharpened like a two-edged sword at my first Souly Business. That retreat gave me a deeper clarity of God’s plan for my life. I learned how to pause and wait on Him and how to hear His voice. My life now is a story of finishing well. My marriage, alongside time in ministry, is God’s focus for my life. Souly Business reinforced consistent time with my Heavenly Father and I now want to invite Jesus into everything I do, in order to best reflect Him to others.
