Walk in the Word Encourages Men to 'Act Like Men' with New Conference

Act Like A Man conferenceWalk in the Word with James MacDonald is hosting a bold new two-day conference for men called Act Like Men, which will be held in Long Beach, CA, this weekend and in Indianapolis, IN, next month.

The conference debuted earlier this month in Hamilton, Ontario, where men were invited and encouraged to “[b]e watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love,” as stated in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14.

Speakers include Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor at The Village Church in Dallas, TX; Mark Driscoll, Preaching and Vision Pastor at Mars Hill Church in Seattle, WA; Greg Laurie, Senior Pastor at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, CA; James MacDonald, Senior Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago, IL; and Eric Mason, Lead Pastor at Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, PA.

"Men want to be free," says MacDonald. "They want to get victory over the sins that are dragging their souls down, but they desperately need to hear from some clear messengers who can cut to core, set it straight, and call us to God's holy standard."

"This is going to be a powerful, catalytic, life-changing event," he adds.

The upcoming event in California will begin on Friday, October 18, at 7:00 p.m., with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. The conference resumes the next day at 9:00 a.m., with doors opening at 8:00 a.m.

As the event is geared toward a more mature audience, content presented by the speakers may not be suitable for pre-teens or young teens.

Details for the conference are available at actlikemen.com, including photos from the recent gathering in Ontario, Canada.
