STAND UP! Men's Conference

In a world that constantly bombards men with false ideas about manhood, this is a crucial time for men to STAND UP and stand firm in the faith.  The Bible tells us to

"Be on the alert, stand firm, in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love." I Corinthians 16:13-14

"Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled.  Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us."  Titus 2:6-8

In light of these commands the purpose and thrust of this conference will be to carve out a time and platform for men, ages 13 and up, to come and examine genuine manhood from a biblical perspective.....men of God talking and teaching what it means to "act like men" in our current culture and context.
