Dear Friends,

Please join me and thousands of other men to hear about our vision for PK's future; Saturday March 14, 2009 we will meet in Orlando to kick off the vision for our 20th anniversary event. This event will RE-LAUNCH THE MINISTRY back to our roots as a catalytic event ministry that calls men to be better followers of Jesus Christ. This event is free, but you have to pre-register at www.PKOrlando.com

As PK's founder, it is exciting and challenging to return as Chairman of the Board of Directors. I would like to speak on behalf of our PK team. Thank you for your commitment to Promise Keepers over the years! I want to take this opportunity to share with you how I believe God wants Promise Keepers to accomplish its ongoing vision of “Men Transformed Worldwide.”

First, it's important to say that our Statement of Faith is our firm footing. Second, The Seven Promises of a Promise Keeper remain central to what makes Promise Keepers a unique ministry in the world, and our plans will advance the mission of “igniting and uniting men to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ.”

Our 20th Anniversary event will take place in Bolder, CO this summer and will model practical, scriptural ways to address three important needs in the Body of Christ today:

We are calling on men to bring with them the important women in their lives. There is a very real gender divide in the Christian church today that has produced a significant amount of brokenness and inequity. As promise keepers, we can be an example of how honor brings healing. We will “let her works bring her praise at the city gate.” Proverbs 31:31 (NIV)

· We will honor the spiritual fathers of the faith. Honoring the families of these first apostles has never happened before, so those attending the anniversary celebration will literally be making history! Paul confirmed spiritual fatherhood when he reminded the gentile believers in Corinth: “For if you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Jesus Christ I became your father through the gospel.” I Corinthians 4:15 (NASB)

· We want to tangibly, creatively and effectively honor and minister to the poor, oppressed and needy among us. We will have a hands-on opportunity to do that, as well as to catalyze men for ongoing service alongside their pastors and congregational leaders. As promise keepers, we want the King of Kings to say about us, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 (NIV).

You can tell this will be an exciting time, so join me in Orlando to hear more about the vision for PK's future to impact the lives of men world-wide! And tell your pastor and the men in your life to come out for a few hours on a Saturday morning to hear great praise and worship, and the teaching of some great men of God like Raleigh Washington, David Uth and more. It won't cost you anything, but you'll leave fired up in your faith and stronger as a godly man. Help me spread the word and I'll see you there!

Your Friend,
Coach Bill McCartney
