Focus on the Family revisits Indianapolis '94 speech
Contact: Steve Chavis, Promise Keepers
DENVER, Colo., Aug. 9 /Christian Newswire/ -- Promise Keepers (PK), the international ministry to men, contributes to Focus on the Family's 'Flashback' series of 'definitive broadcasts' today and Friday, Aug. 10, 2007. Leadership guru John Maxwell is featured in a two-part broadcast on Focus on the Family's global network of daily radio outlets.
"Looking back ten or 15 years ago there was a void in the Christian terrain; there were very few gatherings for men," said Dr. James Dobson, host of the broadcast. "Promise Keepers is continuing to provide a service to men. It is still a very important ministry."
The broadcast is a recording of a message from the Promise Keepers men's conference in Indianapolis in 1994. Quoting from the second promise of a promise keeper ("A promise keeper is committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical and sexual purity"), Maxwell told crowd, "Let's keep our hearts pure and our consciences free from evil. The first guideline for dealing with sexual temptation is ... run."
Promise Keepers continues its 17th season of men's conferences with events in Cincinnati (Aug. 17-18) and Fresno (Aug. 24-25). The 2007 conference program targets men's love of adventure, offers them a spiritual challenge, and points them to the fulfillment of their potential. Also this year, Promise Keepers tackles gender relations head-on with a Saturday session called "The Significance of Engaging the Heart of a Woman."
