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

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!

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.

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

Michael Manning

Director of Destiny Rescue

Seminar Title: Be a Leader to be a Protector and Provider

Seminar Description: Paul makes it clear in Ephesians that marriage is a picture of the relationship between Christ and the church. An attack on marriage is also an attack on the relationship between Christ and the church. Sex trafficking, pornography and the oversexualization of our society are an assault on both our marriages and our church. We are allowing Satan’s assault on both humanity and the church when we allow the abuse of girls and women to exist. We as men need to be strong leaders in the fight against sex trafficking and not allow it to continue to be an issue that is more important to women than to us.

Focus: Leadership, fighting sex trafficking
