I got the opportunity to attend my first PK event this weekend. I have always felt I was more in the Passion 268 Generation (www.268generation.org) than the Promise Keepers. But now as a 30 year old man, I guess I need to come to grips with the fact that I am not a college student any more. I am a husband of 5 years, a dad of 2 boys, a pastor and a doctoral student. I probably need to join the other big boys at PK. Which I did without much of a fight.
The event was really good. There were probably 10,000 men there, many gave their hearts to Christ, great time of worship and insightful teaching. I would still prefer to hear John Piper, Louie Gigilio, and Beth Moore (again with the Passion conferences), but the speakers were very interesting and compeling.
There were about 20 men from my church who went. Great group of men to get to know a little bit better. I think I am officially a keeper of God’s promise as a man.
The next conference I will be attending is the Together for the Gospel conference in Louisville, KY. www.t4g.org
