Did Promise Keepers make a difference in the spiritual lives of men?
October 17, 2014
Promise Keepers (PK) is becoming a fuzzy memory for me. I attended my first PK event back in the mid-nineties in Indianapolis. At the time, it was an eye-opener for me to be in a stadium filled with guys for a Christian event to help them grow closer to Jesus Christ.
After that, my son Justin and I went to 10 more events, in various parts of the country. They were all filled with men looking for spiritual growth.
Eleven years ago this weekend, he and I went to PK in Las Vegas. It was a great father-son weekend where we were able to listen, talk and hear great teaching from God's word. It was an unlikely setting for a major Christian men's gathering.
This makes me wonder about PK and what effect it had on men. Did it make a difference in their lives and in their relationship to Jesus? The movement has pretty much fizzled out.
What about my grandsons? Will they ever have a chance to do that with their dads? Will they see that there are thousands and thousands of men around the country who believe in Jesus?
I hope so.
