Our gender and identity were established by God before we were born, but now they are under attack like never before. Specifically, masculinity is a topic facing a lot of scrutiny. Some people consider the term “masculinity” offensive and a detriment to culture. However, that is not how God views it. To help men better understand who they are from a biblical perspective, Charis Bible College will be hosting the Family Research Council’s Stand Courageous conference.
The Stand Courageous conference is based on the five principles of manhood outlined in Man to Man, a book written by Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. “Jerry” Boykin, the executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC). Boykin and other leaders, including FRC president Tony Perkins, created this conference to give men tools and resources that help them develop character, build and rebuild relationships, and make commitments that move them closer to God’s good purpose and design. At this conference, men will be equipped to drop the burdens they carry in the current social climate of gender confusion. For churches, this will be an excellent opportunity to build up your men’s ministry.
Tickets are required and are $39 if purchased in advance and $50 at the door. First responders and active military may attend free-of-charge. All conference resources are free with your ticket purchase, including small group guides and videos. The conference is recommended for men ages thirteen and up.
First Corinthians 16:13 says, “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” (KJV). Men, this conference will show you how to live out this verse. Discover how to be men who will stand courageous! Register today!
