Awesome response to Team World Vision Sunday. We had 44 commitment cards turned in. There is still plenty of time to join. If we reach our goal of 50 Marathon Runners, and each team member raises $2,000, we will raise $100,000 for clean water in Africa. That means 2,000 people will have WATER FOR LIFE. That’s what “making a difference” looks like. Our respect to you all! This is going to be a life-changing experience for US.
“The problem is a man problem, not a social, political, economical, or religious problem”, says Mikie Bartee, Pastor of Development at Connection Church and Man Church Leader. “If a man embraces his responsibility as a Father or Husband instead of choosing a selfish option, this problem literally goes away. This is a solvable problem and we are going to put a lot of resources into solving it. We know it’s not going to happen overnight, so we are going to mentor young men, help kids without a Dad and serve single Moms while we reach out to and train men” According to Bartee, Man Church will be open to any man who wants to make a difference in his home and community. He does not have to attend Connection Church or even like church. The 90 minute gathering will consist of 30 minutes of teaching and 45 minutes of discussion on issues that affect today’s man. Bartee describes it as, “Hard hitting, efficient and on point. We will start on time, end on time, and rally men around a cause. This ain’t your Grandma’s church”.
