The Conversation is designed to: (back to top)
1. Bring men together in common bond around the Stories that we find ourselves in.
There will be some solid teaching.
There will be time to tell and hear stories. This is the focus and apex of the event. Maybe even your story.
2. Bring men together around relaxed conversations and common activities .
Offer post-session conversations that will generate new friendships.
Offer post-session casual activities that will encourage friendships and learn a new skill or just have fun.
Men over the age of 18.
Faith leaders and who they might invite. Pastors: Bring a few of your key men.
Men who can hold confidentiality.
Men who can come for the entire event. Coming late and leaving early generally won't work due to the nature of what we are doing. Let the boss know you're with me and boom...early out or day off on Friday.
A new understanding or your own unique story and its role in everything you do.
The depth and dynamics of our stories and how powerful they can be when shared.
The organic bonding that happens when men share. What a pastor might work for decades to develop that can be done with some simple leadership and courage in a few hours.
A new framework for thinking about ministry in your fellowships. This will definitely impact your men's group efforts.
An introduction to the idea of Real Time Conversations and what that might look like for your key relationships.
The Four Pillars for Long-Term, On-Going Men's Groups.
