2019 SPECIFICS

Theme: "Make it Count". This is very open ended, but boils down to everything that we do, we do for God. This includes our family, relationships, occupation, and our relationship with Jesus. Make every minute count. Don't waste any of it.

We always lift guys up and encourage them! We tell them what they CAN do, rather than what they CAN'T do.

The message should include testimony, but that should only be a part of it and not the focus. Preach a good "on fire" sermon using guy speak.

Friday: Family/Friends/Relationships

Saturday: Occupation/Ministry/Volunteer/Surrender all of this to God

Sunday: God/relationship with Him
