Men's Conference 2022

Building the Biblical Man

Living as Christian Men in Today's World

Today’s world is full of contradictions, competing interests, and clashing worldviews. Sometimes it seems impossible to navigate it all and still be the husband, father, grandfather, leader, or friend that God expects us to be. What does a ‘real man’ look like? Is there still a place for manhood and masculinity in today’s mixed-up society? More importantly, what does God have to say about it?
