JON HEIN- Authentic Christian Presence: The Best Path Forward in a Post- Christian Nation

Americans of all ages are walking away from church. Since America's religious culture has changed, congregational culture‚ÄĒthe way we think about the who, where, and how of gospel ministry‚ÄĒmust change as well. This includes pivoting from the strategy of corporate outreach to one of authentic Christian presence.

KURT NITZ - Congregational Culture: Boost or Burden

Your congregation, like any organization, has a culture. It can either help or hurt you as you go about the work in your ministry. But what exactly is a congregation's culture? Is it really that big of an impact? And are you just stuck with it or can you change it?

2022 Men of His Word Conference

February 19, 2022

Everyone wants to be a winner, but we often feel like losers. We work so hard to be the best and do our best. We want to be loving husbands, caring fathers, faithful church members, hardworking employees, good neighbors and so much more. We try, but it's easy to feel conquered. The devil is constantly attacking us. The world lures us away from God and responsibility. Our sinful natures condemn us. Should we just give up? No! God promises that we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS through him who loved us (Romans 8:37). Not only does God promise strength for our battles now; he promises MORE - that nothing will separate us from his love until we live with him in eternal joy as CONQUERORS. Join us on February 19, 2022 to find strength for the battles and guaranteed victory through Christ.

The 13th Annual MOHW Conference will be held at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Convention Center in Oshkosh on Saturday, February 19 2022. Additional details and online registration are available at www.menofhisword.org . The registration fee is $50 for adults and $25 for youth ‚Äď these rates increase to $60 and $30 respectively after January 30th. Please join us for a day of worship, praise and fellowship in God's Word!
