Go to any bookstore and you won’t have a problem finding books and Bible studies for men’s ministry. But the statistics reveal that, in general, men are not engaged in a local church. And, they aren’t taking leadership of the spiritual reins in their homes or in the church.
Many theories abound as to why this is true, but the fact it is true is non-debatable. There are no silver bullets for this issue. But, what if we could get men to an event that engaged them intellectually and challenged them by speaking to them in a non-demeaning way and calling them to something bigger than themselves?
And, what if you could do it in a group setting so they didn’t feel singled out and beat up? FamilyLife’s Stepping Up™ Super Saturday is a day that can be a catalyst to that kind of movement of men.
The day before the Super Bowl, we hope more than 1,000 Super Saturday events will be hosted across the nation in churches, homes, retreat centers, and any other place a group of men can gather in unison around one call … the call to be a courageous man. One event … thousands of locations … man to man.
The event will feature great teaching from some of the most gifted teachers of God’s Word: guys like Dennis Rainey, Mark Driscoll, Matt Chandler, Stu Weber, Josh Harris, Robert Lewis, James McDonald, Crawford Loritts, William Bennett and others share thoughts about men, God’s plan for men, and experiences from their own lives.
Stepping Up™ Super Saturday is a one-day, high-energy, video-based event that includes great teaching, time for interaction and some fun. Through humorous vignettes, dramatic stories, compelling teaching and personal interaction, this event could be the catalyst to starting or energizing a men’s ministry in your church. And FamilyLife™ has made it easy for you to host it. Simply go to http://mensteppingup.com and find everything you need.
Today’s men are shrinking back when they should be stepping up. Help them tackle the challenges of modern life head-on by hosting Stepping Up Super Saturday on February 2, 2013!
