Dr. Larry McCall

Founder of Walking Like Jesus Ministries

Seminar 1 Title: Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church

Focus: Marriage

Seminar 2 Title: The Best Part of Grandparenting

Seminar 2 Description: Is spoiling the grandkids – and sending them home to their parents – really the best part of being a grandfather? No! God gives us a much more fulfilling and eternity impacting job description as grandfathers!

Focus: Grandparenting

Gene Calderon

Director of Ratio Christi (at Purdue University Northwest)

Seminar Title: Why Christianity? (Among Other Worldviews and Religions)

Seminar Description: In a world with so many worldviews and religions, why choose Christianity? We’ll look at reasons from science, history, and philosophy and see how others fail to stand a test with reality.

Focus: Apologetics

Michael Imhof

Founder of Michael Imhof Ministries

Focus: Foundational encouragement

Stephen Ashton

Director Trail Life USA

Seminar Title: Essential Tools to Equip Boys for Godly Manhood

Seminar Description: In a digital 21st century world boys are increasingly confused about the definition of manhood. Instead of real-world challenge, boys conquer virtual worlds and earn trophies for participation. Discussions about “toxic masculinity,” a blurring of gender lines, fewer and fewer fathers in the home, and the watering down or extinction of programs that train and equip boys to become men have left too many boys frustrated, fearful, and floundering. Learn time-tested strategies to connect with young men, build relationships, and equip them to become leaders of character who thrive as husbands, fathers, and citizens.

Focus – Mentoring Young Men

 

David Howe

Founder of Live Pure Ministries

Seminar Title: Winning The Purity Battle

Seminar Description: I’ll teach God’s design for sexuality and how sin has distorted that design. Sexual sin is not like other sins. Then I’ll teach about the moment of truth when we decide to go our way, or God’s way. We’ll talk about the importance of being in a group of men where you can grow in faith and a place to share your struggle and victories.

Focus: Purity victory!

Philip DelRe

Founder/President of Voice in the Wilderness Ministries

Seminar Title: The Fear of Man vs. The Fear of God

Seminar Description: Giving God His rightful place is key to living the abundant life Jesus speaks of.

Focus – Overcoming the world

David Winters

Director of Taking God to Work

Seminar Title: Taking God to Work

Seminar Description: God’s blueprint for success at work goes way beyond evangelism. By learning and following His principles, men can impact every customer, coworker and boss for Christ. This session provides strategies for finding a job you can love, tapping divine motivation to excel and finding new challenges when it’s time to move on.

Focus: Christian Living

Jamie Walden

Founder of Omega Dynamics

Seminar Title: The Warrior Priesthood

Seminar Description: We live in a generation that is desperate for those “valiant men whose hearts the Lord has touched” stand anew in their identity as Warrior Priest. This is the calling and election of the men who have been redeemed of the Lord. Your homes, your churches, and the crooked and perverse generation around you are groaning for godly men to take their rightful places as the Warrior Priesthood of the Lord.

Focus: Strengthening, Equipping

Grady Hauser

President of Baton 100

Seminar Title: Passing the Baton—100 Life Principles and Skills Every Child Needs to Know

Seminar Description: Every father and grandfather wants to have an influence on the next generation in their family. Here are 100 life principles and skills we must share with our kids to prepare them to leave home (once) and successfully walk with God as self-sufficient young adults. These are real-life principles they’ll never hear in school or likely in church. A “Leader’s Guide” for a 10-week group study, with power point, is also available.

Focus: Consequences. Preparation. Anticipation.

 

Timothy Board

Pastor & Director of Things to Come Mission

Seminar Title: Why Missions is Urgent NOT Optional for Manhood

Seminar Description: How would the priorities of your lifestyle change, if your family was the only evangelical Christian witness in your neighborhood, city, state, or country? The exclusive truths claims of Christ and the power of His finished work at Calvary beckon the hearts of men to live on mission “in Christ” to the praise of His glory. Drawing upon extensive pastoral experience in America and a 27 day adventure to six countries of Southeast Asia in November, this seminar will equip men for cultural engagement with seven truths from the book of Romans about people who have never heard of Jesus Christ.

Focus: Cultural Engagement

Focus: Calling
