Stand Fast Conference for Young Men

The Stand Conference was an exciting weekend for us. It happened simultaneously with a Bright Lights conference in the Omaha area last April. The Selander family (who hosted the Bright Lights conferences) asked us to do a guys’ conference also, so my dad and a team of guys pulled together this conference in response to their request.

Each session was taught by a different person, so there was a wide variety in speakers’ personalities and ages. Here Aaron Biegler is teaching on sibling relationships.

Other Sessions Included:
Being Christ-Centered and Cross-Centered
Bible Reading and Prayer
Defending the Faith
Being Ministry Minded
Sharing the Gospel Boldly
Treating Girls With Honor
Discipling and Being Discipled

Sprinkled throughout the conference were many creative and energy-consuming activities. I guess they figured that the guys wouldn’t be as excited about making bracelets as the girls are.

What a great weekend. So much to praise God for. They were very encouraged and decided to plan another one for Cedar Rapids next month. Here’s the information for the next one:

Just Men Conference This Weekend

This weekend my dad will be running a Just Men Conference in Cedar Rapids (June 14-16). Here’s the information from the flyer.

The need in our day is for a new generation of young men to rise up who are “just” and whom God can use for His glory and His Kingdom. “ … I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one” (I John 2:14b).

• Build and strengthen the future leadership of the Body of Christ
• Establish a growing fellowship group of “just men” who have a working relationship together in the various ministries God gives them
• Strengthen future marriages and families by laying essential Biblical foundations
• Be instrumental as the Lord raises up and sends forth laborers into His harvest
• Encourage and train young men to be disciple makers

• Biblical concepts of the Christian life and of being a just man
• The importance and function of the church, the Body of Christ
• The enemies facing the church, the culture, and us as men
• Important issues and battles of our day
• Ministry and leadership

FOR: Men of all ages (16 yrs old and up)

Friday 5:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM
