Promise Keepers Media Day ’06...

from Christian News Wire (press release) - Washington, DC:

Promise Keepers Media Day ’06 Features Baptist Leader, Panel Debates Exodus of Men from Church:

WHAT: An afternoon media forum on perhaps the most pressing issue facing the American church, the exodus of its men. Originating in front of a live audience at Promise Keepers’ national offices in Denver, Colo., Promise Keepers 3rd annual "Media Day" features a live address by Dr. Bob Reccord, president of the North American Mission Board – Southern Baptist Convention, and a panel of leading thinkers and strategists on men’s ministry. The address and panel discussion will be audio and text linked to world through Internet, with reporters from around the United States asking questions via e-mail.

WHY: The hottest book in men’s ministry is David Murrow’s Why Men Hate Going to Church. Pollster George Barna’s latest book Revolution points to a long term trend of men and youth leaving the traditional church. Even Time Magazine’s February 27, 2006 issue tracks the new-styled "home church." Charisma magazine’s Lee Grady calls Barna’s notions "dangerous." If these trends prove true, this migration from the pews will profoundly impact America’s religious life.



• 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Promise Keepers CEO Tom Fortson introduces Bob Reccord, speaking on "Hearing God’s Invitation"

• 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Panel discussion – working title: "The Church in the Balance: Where Are The Men?"

PANELISTS: multi-cultural consultant and author Stan Perea, HIS Ministries, Denver, Colo., teacher and author James Ryle, TruthWorks Ministries, Franklin, Tenn., pastor Alvin Simpkins, Emmanuel Christian Center, Denver, Colo.

• photos and audio clips posted throughout the day, complete transcripts posted by late afternoon!!
