On August 19, men and young men will come together for worship, instruction, and fellowship. We will strive by God's grace to be faithful to the high calling of God in our lives.  Pastors and men's ministry leaders, we encourage you to bring a group of men from your church. The cost is $15 per person and lunch is included with your registration. 

An on-site store will be available. Thank you for LifeWay for their partnership.

In 2015, Jim and Nicci Spencer and their thirteen children felt led of the Lord to sell everything, leave the plains of Kansas and live on the road, in a bus, ministering in music and teaching, in churches all around the country for at least a year (which turned into two years). They have traveled from coast-to-coast and from coast-to-coast again, averaging over 90 concerts a year. Having recently returned to dwelling in a more traditional home, they continue to minister throughout the country. With their original songs, acoustic arrangements and a passion to make much of Christ, the Spencers are a family band that will delight your heart and encourage your soul.
