/ -- Experts attribute much of the suffering that children experience (poverty, drug addiction, hunger, health, lack of education, suicide) to father absent homes.* At Christian Men's Network (CMN) Lions Roar Global Men's Summit, November 9-11, 2016 a dynamic lineup of world leaders will strategize and advance the mission to reduce the worldwide epidemic of fatherlessness, sexual addiction, child abuse, and how to build strong men, families, and churches.
"CMN is more than a ministry, we are a human justice mission strategically focused to defeat fatherlessness, stop child abuse, and set men free who are trapped in sexual dysfunction," states Dr. Paul Cole, CMN cofounder and president. "We are fully committed to the imperative that every child deserves a loving dad."
CMN was cofounded by Maximized Manhood author Edwin Louis Cole in 1977. CMN books, curriculum and videos are the most widely used men's discipleship resources in the world. Pastors, churches, business leaders, government officials, school administrators, and prison chaplains find CMN materials remarkably effective in any culture or community. Dedicated men from all streams of Christianity are invited to Lions Roar on November 9-11, at Gateway Church in Grand Prairie, TX.
"The reason for gathering these influential leaders is to express practical answers to the issues that face our world. Leaders are coming from the rugged streets of West Baltimore, the rough and tumble favelas of Rio, the tumultuous Philippines, and more." states Cole. "Over 50 nations will be represented. We are captured by the mission, to bring life into a dying world, proclaim freedom to the oppressed and downtrodden—to give others hope."
Featured speakers include a host of church-builders and fathers in the faith such as Casey Treat, Peter Lowe, Alex Mitala, Dale O'Shields, Dennis Peacocke, Nick Caine, and more. They will join CMN's core team of Michael Murphy of Australia, Robert Barriger of Peru, Dale Bronner of Atlanta, Doug Stringer of Somebody Cares, Houston, Dwayne Pickett of Jackson, Jim Garlow of San Diego, and Leon Fontaine of Winnepeg.
In today's cultural confusion, the call for Christlike manhood has never been stronger, and the need has never been greater for men of faith to stand strong for their families, fight for the fatherless, and embrace their life "Mission." Lions Roar 2016 will focus on helping Christian leaders advance and expand their mission with strategies that include mentoring, youth camps, social media, building strong families and powerful social communities.
"The Mission is alive. The Mission is unstoppable. The Mission is Jesus Christ," Cole states. "It is important for men to remember the words of Jesus, that, 'You didn't choose the mission, the mission chose you!'" explains Cole.
The theme for the Lions Roar Global Men's Summit is "Mission!" Meetings will be held at Gateway Church, Grand Prairie, TX on Wednesday-Friday, November 9-11. Information can be obtained at 817-437-4888 or www.LionsRoar2016.com
