Fathers' Conferences

Equipping dads with tools for leadership

In Deuteronomy 6, God instructs parents to demonstrate His love to their children and teach His words diligently. Parents are commanded to “teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:7).” Studies have shown that fathers play a critical role in passing faith in God on to their children. Sadly, in this day and age, many fathers have neglected this responsibility or simply dropped the torch altogether. It is time for men to take the lead and pass the torch of faith to the next generation!

Fathers, sons, and men of all ages are invited to the 2018 Men’s Conference, January 18-20. Join Gil Bates, Peter Magnuson, and others in Big Sandy, Texas, for an encouraging time around the Word of God. Peter will be sharing some of the lessons he learned from his father, the late Roger Magnuson. He will also explain the difference between faith-based, fear-based, and flesh-based parenting. The insights Gil has gained as a pastor and father of nineteen will help you pass the torch to the next generation. Other speakers will be sharing from their experience as sons and fathers.
