SATURDAY MORNING SEMINARS

Seminars are a fantastic tool for impacting men's growth in discipleship!  Here are 3 reasons:  1) The right speaker can re-ignite their passion for Christ and His kingdom.  Most men already know what they should be doing; what they need most is a fresh dose of energy and inspiration to live for Christ.  2)  Since most men read very little, a 3 hour seminar can give a man more content that is relevant to his walk with Christ than he normally gets in a whole year through reading. 3)  What men need, even more than biblical content, is connection with other men who face the same challenges and struggles they do.  Our seminars always include discussion groups.

Can our church afford to host such a seminar?  The answer is most likely, "yes."  Most of our seminars are 2 1/2-3 1/2 hours long.  Our standard seminar fee is only $25/man with a minimum guarantee of 25 men.  The host church would need to cover travel expenses of over 50 miles. Contact Gary for more information about our seminars. 

Which seminar is the best one to start with?  The answer is the one that best fits the needs of your guys.  If they all match the needs of your men, here is a suggestion. Start with Rediscovering Biblical Manhood in year one.  Host Leading Our Families Well in year two, which gives him apractical tools and a game plan for living out his calling on the home front. Then follow up with  Grace Transformed Sexulaity or Becoming a Band of Brothers.  However, any seminar works as a starting place if it addresses the needs of your men!
