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.

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.
