Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!
~ Psalm 96:2-3
What is the mission of God? How does my work, home, neighborhood and church fit into it? That is the question our ‘one day’ men’s conference addressed. We enjoyed ministry from God’s word as together we considered “God’s Mission” and our lives as men.

Biblical Manhood Revisited
Our main speaker is Shaun Pillay, a church planter from Connecticut and church planting catalyst for the North American Mission Board. Shaun serves on the board of the Philip Center, and is excited to see many more gospel centered churches planted throughout our region.

We also have two breakout sessions planned:
- Work Matters by Bauer Evans (Lead Pastor, Crossway Church)
A brief teaching from scripture, followed by discussion about how our work matters to God, and how God matters to our work. Work includes our vocations, our homes, and our neighborhoods too.
- Biblical Manhood Revisited by John Power (Pastor of Preaching, New Covenant Christian Fellowship)
A study of God’s design for men and the purpose behind the differences between men and women and the hope of the gospel to transform our lives to fulfill these purposes.
These days, though, most men live without a clear sense of who they are or where they should be going. Their fathers have defined them, but that definition often came through their absence and their lack of instruction.
The first step the our journey toward manhood is admitting that a problem exists. There is a lot of confusion in our culture about what a man’s identity is. We can’t solve it ourselves; we need help.
In my own journey, I’ve discovered three things:
- I must rely on Christ
- I need a plan
- I need other men too
Join us as we ‘step up’ to manhood together.
