Men’s Advance – Challenging, Engaging, Powerful

HighlandGames MensAdvance 858Sometimes you get funny looks from men when you invite them to Men’s “Advance.” Men’s Advance, a premier men’s ministry event in the Seattle area, is a weekend that challenges men to live into their God-given potential. It gives men hope that they can really be the person they want to be, who God created them to be. Through music, drama, testimony, and motivational teaching, men are filled with vision for their lives at Men’s Advance. Activities such as H.U.G.E. Highland Games, a “Cool Machines” show, and more, give guys things to do with one another that forms and strengthens friendships. Men’s Advance encourages connection with God and with other guys. For, it is in relationship with God and others that men “advance” in their faith and life.

Dr. Stu Weber is this year’s keynote speaker. This U.S. Army Green Beret Veteran, with three bronze stars, discovered his calling through the trauma and uncertainty of the Vietnam War. Stu came through the war with a call to proclaim Christ and His Kingdom and to call men to become all God intends them to be. Stu is an author, pastor, and teacher and also a devoted husband and family man with three sons and nine grandchildren. Widely-heralded for his clear, practical, and challenging messages, Stu has spoken for national men’s ministry events such as Promise Keepers, Men at the Cross, and Iron Sharpens Iron. He also maintains a consistent ministry to the U.S. Military both at home and abroad.

Men’s Advance is sponsored in part by H.U.G.E. Men of God, who sponsor local men’s forums each week for seven weeks leading up to Men’s Advance. What better way to prepare for Men’s Advance than to already be worshipping, praying, and connecting with guys in the local community. A list of Men’s Forum locations and times can be found at www.hugemenofgod.com.

So, men, if you want to advance in life and faith, then Men’s Advance is for you! Register today at www.Mens-Advance.com.

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
