Everybody Wants a Title…Call Me Dad

Ed Babcock, Somersworth, NH
Author & Speaker, Ed Babcock Consulting

This seminar is for Full Throttle Men (ages 30-54)

Often in our lives we are in the pursuit of a title. Whether that title is butcher, baker, or candlestick maker, all like the definition, but also the recognition that comes from being “somebody.” When looking at the big picture, our role as a dad is the most impactful and significant title we could ever have, so at the end of the day… just call me Dad.

Transforming Addiction

Christopher Knapp, Darien Center, NY
Minister, Total Freedom / Manager, Freedom Expressions

Money, Cars, Drugs, Clothes, Women, Food, and More… The things in life we’re brought up to strive for. If you don’t have enough of it you aren’t living right, and if you do have these things, it’s never enough.  And after living the fast life filled with all of the above, we find these things never actually quenched our thirst. This seminar will go into an in depth conversation about Ecclesiastes, realizing man is to fear the Lord and keep His commandments. Paul learned in all things to be content, and we will talk about freedom and what it means to be content. Contentment is a process, the process of transforming our addictions into a Godly reverence and a life of total freedom, breaking down the three things in the world that can give the enemy an open door to our lives – the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.

From Overwhelmed to Overcoming

Garrett Hall, Bath, NY
Pastor, Grace Bible Baptist Church

Being a man is hard.  Being a godly man? Even harder.  Sometimes it is easy to justify or rationalize our reasons for being less than what God has called us to be.  But what we might consider reasons, God considers excuses. Drawing parallels from the biblical example of Moses, we will identify some of the common inner struggles that keep us from stepping into our calling as men.  Get ready to overcome excuses by being armed with biblical and practical ways to live, love and lead the way God is calling you.

Facing the Giant of Fear

Jon Stanke, Columbus, OH
Men’s Ministry Leader, Grace Fellowship

Fear takes us out of the battlefield and makes us useless for God. In Numbers 13, we see the Israelites on the edge of the Promised Land. It was theirs for the taking but 10 out of 12 spies let fear dictate their decisions. They were more focused on the challenges in front of them rather than remembering God’s promise to them. We can compare this story to our lives today. We often forget the promises of God and focus on the fears in front of us. In this seminar, we will review Numbers 13 and learn how God is always faithful and keeps His promises to us regardless of what may lie in front of us.

Developing Your Mentorship Skills – Pass It On

Adam Hultstrand, Lebanon, PA
Ministry Director of Outreach, Knights of the 21st Century

This seminar is for Seasoned Men (ages 55+)

We know we’re called by Jesus to make disciples, yet many men are not comfortable mentoring or discipling other men. This is understandable because most men have never been mentored themselves! This seminar highlights the Biblical priority of mentoring, the identity of the mentor and practical topics to address in any mentoring relationship.
