    Channel 1: Dad Tired - Jerrad Lopes
    Description: If you’re a dad, you’re most likely exhausted. Many dads work hard to provide for their family, and then come home and try to be the best fathers and husbands they can be.

    Channel 2: Five Truths About Spiritual Growth Nobody Talks About Anymore - Larry Osborne

    Channel 3: How a Man's Work Matters to God - Afshin Ziafat
    Description: Does your work matter to God? How do you follow Christ in a workplace that seems far from God? Why is the working world so challenging to what you believe? How do you find fulfillment in your work? Afshin will encourage men to press on in their work and glorify God in their workplace.

    Channel 4: A Friend Indeed - Dave Dummitt
    Description: Lone wolf. Renegade. As men we tend to armor up against the world ready to go it alone. But isolation is a liability and strong friendship one of the greatest catalysts to accomplishing the life mission God has called you to. In Scripture, Paul and Barnabas had a strong, purposeful, and imperfect friendship that shows a few ways we can build and protect the kind of friendships that bolster our lives.

  • Closing session with worship, testimony and keynote address Keynote: You Will Never Regret Coming Home - Derwin Gray There are times in our lives where we will run away from home, even from our Heavenly Father. We may feel shame when we realize what we have done, so much so, that it keeps us from returning home. Our Father, however, is compassionate and forgiving. He is always calling us home – and we won’t regret answering that call. Derwin shares the hope we have in returning to the open arms of our loving God.
