Breakout session topics and leaders are:


Men’s Ministry Do’s and Don’ts
Target audience:
Men and teen guys
Leader: Glenn Davis
What does it take to build a thriving men’s ministry in your church? How should men encourage, strengthen and lead the Body of Christ? Glenn Davis will answer these questions during this session.


Disaster Relief
Leader:
Frank McCrary
Target audience: Men
When a natural disaster occurs, men have an opportunity to step up, offer relief and rebuild. Frank McCrary, a veteran of disaster-relief ministry, will give you helpful tips and resources as you seek to share God’s love in times of crisis.


What Wives Wish Their Husbands Knew about Women
Leader:
Mari Parker
Target audience: Men
Do you know everything about women? Didn’t think so! However, there’s hope. This session will give us some advice on how to better understand, love and serve the women in our lives.


Hittin’ the Mark
Leader:
Todd Bradrick
Target audience: Men and teen guys
Hitting a target down-range requires pin-point accuracy. This session will use marksmanship to illustrate how focused, achievable and measurable goals lead to pin-point accuracy in our God-given purpose.


God Doesn’t Want Your Money
Leader:
Jon Sapp
Target audience: Men and teen guys
That’s right: you read the title correctly. God is not interested in your money as much as He is in your heart. This session will help us see how our spending relates to our worship, and it will challenge us to trust God with more than our cash.


Tactical Living
Leader:
Levi Perkins
Target audience: Men and teen guys
Living for Christ is a hard-fought mission. This engaging session will use the Bible as well as some fun with Nerf guns to illustrate a man’s need to tactically fight the enemy’s threats.


Idol Attack
Leader:
Parker Dane
Target audience: Men and teen guys
We worship 24/7! Unfortunately we often choose to worship the idols of control, comfort and significance instead of Christ. This session will talk about how we can diagnose and disarm idol attacks on our way to a deeper faith in Jesus.


Life on the Battlefield
Leader:
Cris Smith
Target audience: Men and teen guys
To be truly life-changing, our faith needs to infiltrate every part of who we are. This session will show that without an all-access pass to things like our home, job and hobby, Jesus can’t mold us into the man He wants us to be.


Wrenches in the Trenches
Leader:
Jason Winget
Target audience: Men and teen guys
Like life, cars at times can be incredibly complicated. There are millions of working parts, each requiring a different tool. Fortunately, God has given us every tool we need to live a godly life. We just need to know how to access those tools.
