We're Ready, Are You?!

 Xtreme Faith-Bold Action, we’re ready, are you!? That’s the question the event planning team and many other men throughout the hosting regions have for men all across the country.  This new concept for men’s ministry has something for everyone: great speakers, diverse and interesting workshops, plenty of recreation, historic mission work options, uplifting worship, exciting music, spirit-filled fellowship and lots of other surprises.

We expect men to depart from this experience with a new sense for the future of men’s ministry.  This experience is our first step toward engaging with men of all ages, faiths and backgrounds in dialogue and understanding of what it means to be a man in the 21st century.  This event will give men the unique and wonderful opportunity to take with them a spiritual renewal that can transfer into their own men’s group activities and daily lives. 

We’re actively praying for you all, as we work to create a fun and exciting experience for everyone.  It has taken ‘extreme faith’ to get to where we are.  The weekend of July 13-15, 2012 the ‘bold action’ we’re preparing to share with you will be unveiled. 

We confidently expect a successful event like none other that will be remembered and talked about for some time.  Men, let’s get rid of our spiritual laziness!  Let’s renew ourselves together and grow into the spiritually active men we’re being called to be!   
With that in mind here’s list of things we’d like you, D-I-S-C-P-L-E-S  M-E-N to remember:

-DISCERN the call to attend!
-INTEND on being spiritually motivated!
-STOP making excuses why you can’t attend!
-CHALLENGE a friend to attend with you!
-IMMERSE your self in the Holy Spirit!
-PRAY men will be motivated to attend!
-LIVE life like you mean it!*
-EXPECT the unexpected!
-STOP making more excuses why you can’t attend!
-MAKE a personal commitment to build on this experience!
-EARLY bird registration ends January 9th!
