The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. -2 Timothy 2:2
Clear and simple; our vision is to have men equipping men to be dedicated followers, truth proclaimers and passionate seekers of the life found only in Jesus Christ. This is a concerted effort to provoke one another to love and good deeds starting with thoughtful, meaningful time spent in the Truth. Truth for Every Man.
Since Jesus Christ proclaimed Himself to be “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6) the disciples of Christ should be equipping one another (Eph 4:12), to follow the Lord, speak His truth in love, and live a life that honors Him. This conference is designed to accomplish these three tasks.
We want to help men to walk faithfully with their God starting in their homes. We want to bring men together in order to encourage them to grow in the Word, and to shine like stars in the midst of a crooked and depraved generation. Our desire is to bring the truth to bear on the mind of every man.
