July 16 and 17 saw the dawn of a new era as Promise Keepers (PK), the men’s ministry founded in 1990 by Coach Bill McCartney and known for its massive stadium events, held its 2021 Conference at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. . .
Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), board member of Promise Keepers, was just one of the speakers inspiring the worldwide audience with a vision of Christian manhood:
“Who are we as Christian men? Who are we as his church? Are we just another institution in society? Are we another religious faith narrative competing in the marketplace of ideas? Who are we as men, and who are we in the 21st century?
“We must respond with clarity, conviction and courage: we are the light of the world. We are a city on a hill. We are people of the word. We are salt and light. We are prophetic and not pathetic. We are disciples, witnesses and Christ-followers. We are children of the cross, fruit of the empty tomb, and product of the upper room. We are the redeemed of the Lord. We are forgiven, free and favored, called and chosen. We are warriors and worshipers. We are world changers and history makers.
“And let me tell you what we are not. We are not Google. We are not Microsoft. We are not Ford. We are not Starbucks and respectfully, we are not the NFL.
“We are the Church of Jesus Christ. And the gates of hell shall not, the gates of hell will not, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us.”
Other speakers included Jonathan Evans, Les Parrott, Carter Conlon, Nick Vujicic, Donald Burgs, Jr., Jerry Boykin, A. R. Bernard, James Robison, Robert Morris, Chad Hennings, Tim Brown, Charles Haley and Michael Irvin.
