“As it goes with the men, so it goes with the church.” I first heard this quote on a podcast 9-ish years ago when planting StoryHeights church looked like nothing more than a budding dream in my heart.
I didn’t fully grasp the magnitude of the words when I first heard them, and only got a snippet of their magnitude when we started the church and I felt like the male pastor of a New England’s women ministry. 🙂 We began to pray that men would not only come to the church, but step up and step into the spaces they were so desperately needed. Wouldn’t you know it, slowly but surely they did. That’s when I realized the full magnitude of the words, “As it goes with the men, so it goes with the church.”
There’s a strength and calm that only men can bring to the Kingdom of God. This Fall, as we gather for the 2019 Men’s Conference, we will come together to grow, strengthen and encourage each other as we continue to become those men that we’ve been called to be.
This conference will be a low-key, fun and life-giving weekend catered to you as a man. You will hear from a seasoned man/husband/father/pastor/leader/Patriots fan, Phil McCutchen, who will be sharing with us from his vast life experience and depth of understanding of Gods word. Your expectations should be high, and I hope you come ready to be changed.
And let me tell you now, there’s no excuse not to come. Make plans, change plans and make time to be there. You need it, we need you, and we will all be better because of this time spent together!
I will see you there.
