God’s Mighty Men: LIVE IT OUT! 2023 Conference Aug 26

Mark your calendars! GMM’s 2023 conference will be Saturday, August 26th, 2023, 8:30 am – 3:00 pm at Cheyenne’s CrossBridge Alliance facility.

We are bringing in keynote speaker Kenny White to be our guide as we explore God’s proven route for the adventure of life. In breakout sessions and fellowship over lunch, you’ll be inspired and better equipped for living out the faith, whether you are setting out on the journey of discipleship, or further along the way of Jesus.
For the first time in several years, our program will go until 3pm. This gives us time to “break out” into several smaller groups to discuss questions raised in the keynote addresses, share new insights and skills, and consider how to apply them.

Your $25 ticket includes refreshments during a morning break, and lunch… and for those who want to hang out awhile afterwards, a post-event dessert. As usual, there will be time to visit local parachurch ministry tables, networking and fellowship. Stay tuned for ticketing info and other details.

Pastor Blast from Joe Niverson

If you were at GMM 2022 on Sept. 17, you are sure to remember the Pastor Blast from Joe Niverson, Director of Pastoral Care for Volunteers of America…

He started to tell us how one man’s decision to speak the truth and do the word saved his life.

We were riveted! Nearing the end of his three-minute time limit, Joe told how he threw “Coop” to the floor in a fit of rage… and then went up to his room to pack, because he KNEW he was going to jail… Then – from the shadows of stage left, THE HOOK approached… The crowd cried out “LET HIM FINISH!” But there was to be no mercy from the relentless clock. Now, back by popular demand: turn up your volume and give Reverend Joe 3 minutes more, to tell you the REST of his storyhttps://youtu.be/cfhE-pULTWc

P.S., if you missed GMM2022, you can check out his original 9/17 Pastor Blast here: https://youtu.be/VBhIF9Wt61Q?t=7160 . The rest of the conference is indexed in our previous email, forwarded below.
