Christian Men’s Conference

"Jesus Our Legacy"
Speaker: Brad Bird of MarketLife Ministries

St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center
February 20-22, 2015

Register here (Be sure to register as a guest)..

Men: Mark your calendars for the 25th annual Christian Men’s Conference, at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center, February 20-22.  We expect this conference will sell out even faster than last year's did, so sign up early!

The 2015 conference will be headlined by guest speaker, Brad Bird of MarketLife Ministries. See more about Brad, below.

This event has been instrumental in many of our lives by building men’s ministry centered on our Savior Jesus Christ. Many lives have been touched as a result of the work of the Holy Spirit through the years of the Men’s Conference.  Hearts have been softened, wounds healed, relationships mended all through the power of Christ working in our lives. The Holy Spirit worked mightily last year when Bishop Lawrence spoke.  This year’s event promises to be an exciting time for rest, renewal and hope with the focus of “Jesus our Legacy.”  Join us and see how the Lord will use you in unexpected ways. 

Costs for the Friday through Sunday event are: $195/Cabin, $255/Lodge. All meals are included. Scholarship funds are available.   Spread the word and invite a friend. The conference is open to all men age 13 and up. 

Register for the Men's Conference here (register as a guest).

Market Life Ministries was founded upon the belief that the revival and strengthening of the Church rests on the life changing power of God’s word. What we do is bring ministry to the marketplace.

Brad Bird is the President and co-founder of the Center for Biblical discovery. Brad received his Masters in Divinity from Columbia International University, and has been involved in several types of ministry, including youth ministry and Precepts Ministries. Market Life Ministries offers many ways for Christians to strengthen their own faith as well as increase their witness in the workplace, obeying Christ’s command to be salt and light to world.

The Center for Biblical Discovery began in its current form in 1998 when Brad Bird became executive director and the board of directors set a new course for the ministry. Brad lives in Columbia, SC with his wife, Melissa, and their four daughters, Caroline, Karis, Elizabeth, and Anna-Bradley.

Listen to the Talks from the 2013 Eternal Impact Conference

Paul and Phil DownerIn February, 2013, men throughout the Diocese were treated to the Eternal Impact weekend led by Phil and Paul Downer of DNA Ministries.  Whether you were able to attend or not, the messages of Phil and Paul Downer are important for each of us to hear afresh or for the first time. We are making these available online for you to download and listen to again or for the first time. As God continues to use each one of us to make an Eternal Impact, these messages can serve to inspire and remind of us of what the Lord has done and is doing through His church, that's you and me.

We hope you will share the link to these audio files with men around you, in your church and in your lives, and that the messages will continue the work the Lord is doing in our midst. Enjoy.
