“Act Like Men” conference; Register October 19 to November 9, in the Lobby:
Look around.  What’s so desperately needed where we live, in our country and in our world, are men who embrace all that God created them to be.  Men who are loud and ruthless about their own sin, but patient and full of grace in leading others.  Men who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation.
To get there we need radical surgery.  It’s time to cut deep and get it all, and not be afraid of what that means.  We want to challenge you to join thousands of men for a 2-day conference, November 14-15, and step up to Act Like Men!  Visit for more details about speakers.

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love.”  1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (ESV)
