Promise Keepers (PK) is still reaching men. In its 25th year of hosting life-changing events for men and boys, an aggressive schedule includes seven cities.
“We are calling men to come together city-wide and region wide, and unite in the battle for our homes, churches and communities,” said Dr. Raleigh Washington, Promise Keepers president and CEO, who himself is a 20-year U.S. Army veteran. “Our duty is to contend for the faith, without compromise.”
The theme verses for 2015 are: I Corinthians 16:13 (“Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”) and Isaiah 7:9b (“If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.”)
Presenters and Topics
Presenters in 2015 include PK founder Coach Bill McCartney and evangelist and baseball great Darryl Strawberry. The roster of PK speakers includes longtime favorites Larry Acosta, Tommy Barnett, Reggie Dabbs, Bishop Joseph Garlington, Miles McPherson, Rick Rigsby, Dr. Gary Rosberg, and Dobie Weasel. Author and pastor Francis Chan speaks at Promise Keepers for the first time this year.
Comedians Brad Stine and Cleto Rodgriguez bring their unique brands of humor and social critique. Christian artists Mark Schultz, Unspoken and guitar master Lincoln Brewster present Friday night concerts.
At Promise Keepers, topics are presented in an in-your-face manner. Session titles are: “Liberation,” “S.O.P. for Life,” “The Uncompromised Heart,” “Homeland Security,” “A Unified Front” and “Unbroken—No Compromise.”
