Location: 45625 S Sumas Rd, Chilliwack, BC V2R 4M7Coordinator: Jordan Henderson
On Saturday, May 26, Grace Fellowship Chilliwack and Church on 99 in Squamish are hosting the Man of God Men’s Conference. The conference will be held on the campus of Sardis Community Church in Chilliwack and will address the Biblical mandate that God has given to men. Dr. Richard Caldwell will be our featured speaker.
Dr. Caldwell has pastored Founders Baptist Church since 1998 in Houston, Texas and has a heart for discipling and training men. He holds an M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a D.Min. from The Master’s Seminary. He also serves as the Campus Pastor of The Expositor’s Seminary.
According to some recent studies, the leadership of men in the home and the church is rapidly declining. The Pew Research Center, which takes polls of religious life in various countries, says that women are more likely to pray, read their Bible, and attend church than men are. As a result, they are more likely to lead in those various areas.
Scholars have come up with all kinds of solutions to fix this problem which cover everything from psychology to genetics to “existential security,” but the answer is simpler than all of that. Men need to return to the Bible. They need to understand the role God has given them in His Word.
The Bible says that God has called man to be a provider (1 Timothy 5:8), a teacher (Proverbs 22:6), and a lover of his wife (Colossians 3:19) and children (Ephesians 6:4). It tells him to be devoted to prayer (1 Timothy 2:8) and “to be on the alert. . . and firm in the faith” (1 Corinthians 16:13). He is to be temperate, dignified, and sensible (Titus 2:2), and to delight in the law of the Lord (Psalm 1:1-6). He is to serve others just like Jesus did, remembering that “a slave is not greater than his master . . . For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you” (John 13:15-16).
In short, the man of God is to be a leader. He is to lead in his home and in the church. He is to lead by example and by his words and deeds, which is what the 2018 Man of God Conference is all about.
The cost for the conference is $20 and lunch will be provided. The schedule is as follows:
Session 1 9:30-10:30
Session 2 10:50-11:50
Session 3 12:45
Q & A 1:45
