Modern Day Knights

Sam, Adam, Aaron and Josh Richbart, Cheektowaga, NY
Executive Director, Camp Hickory Hill

This seminar is for Emerging AND Full Throttle Men (ages 13-19 & 30-54)

What Does It Mean to Be a Man?  The medieval custom of knighthood offers a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man.  Boys were trained from an early age, being equipped with a masculine vision, a code of conduct, and a cause in which to invest their lives.  During the first half of this seminar, emerging and full-throttle men will meet separately discussing the above from two different vantage points.  We will end the seminar together with guided discussions on raising Modern-Day Knights.

You Are The Man For Her

Reginald Holder, Nashville, TN
Elder, Reginald Holder Ministries

The greatness of man is revealed in many areas.  Sports, education, sales or church, men achieve and advance with a confidence that had to come from the supernatural.  Some of these same men cower and fade when challenged with loving their wives. The confidence to land the deal, make the presentation or win the debate disappears.  Each man is equipped to win, born for this, made for this – but most men don’t know it. Most have never seen it modeled but it is a part of every husband.  You are the man for her.

Keys to Cultivating A Life of Wisdom & Courage

Paul Downer, Chattenooga, TN
Pastor, The Mission Chattanooga

It’s tough being a man today. We are surrounded by pressures and expectations that, if left unchecked, force us to live in survival mode.  They push us to live reactive life focused on handling the stresses of the present moment and avoiding failure. We were meant for more than this. We were meant for a life of wisdom and courage.  A life where there is time, space and energy to map out who we want to be in the future, and what concrete practices can help us get there. This workshop is going to be a very practical session where the speaker will share personal examples about his own battle to escape survival mode and learn how to cultivate a life of wisdom and courage.

The 3 P’s – Priest, Prophet and Provider

Reginald Holder, Nashville, TN
Elder, Reginald Holder Ministries

As our society continues to redefine many of the norms we’ve come accustomed to, there is a question which no one dares ask:  What is the primary role of the man in the home today? Men are left to wander without direction or any viable solution.  The real truth is that the organic roles of the male have never changed. So what’s the confusion?  The confusion is these roles are not discussed.  In the 3 P’s we reintroduce the God given positions all men are endowed with. It’s time to lead in all the places we were created to. Let’s take our positions so our families can follow.
