Stand Fast Conference for Young Men

The Stand Conference was an exciting weekend for us. It happened simultaneously with a Bright Lights conference in the Omaha area last April. The Selander family (who hosted the Bright Lights conferences) asked us to do a guys’ conference also, so my dad and a team of guys pulled together this conference in response to their request.

Each session was taught by a different person, so there was a wide variety in speakers’ personalities and ages. Here Aaron Biegler is teaching on sibling relationships.

Other Sessions Included:
Being Christ-Centered and Cross-Centered
Bible Reading and Prayer
Defending the Faith
Being Ministry Minded
Sharing the Gospel Boldly
Treating Girls With Honor
Discipling and Being Discipled

Sprinkled throughout the conference were many creative and energy-consuming activities. I guess they figured that the guys wouldn’t be as excited about making bracelets as the girls are.

What a great weekend. So much to praise God for. They were very encouraged and decided to plan another one for Cedar Rapids next month. Here’s the information for the next one:
