MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Promise Keepers (PK) marks its 20th year of ministry to men by returning to its roots with a single event this year in Boulder, Colo. "A Time to Honor" is the name of a day-and-a-half conference at Folsom Field on the University of Colorado campus, scheduled for July 31 - August 1, 2009. For the first time, men and women are invited.
This year we are calling men to bring the women in their lives," said Bill McCartney, founder and chairman of Promise Keepers. "To celebrate our 20th year of ministry, we are called to do three things: honor our wives, daughters, and sisters, be a tangible blessing to the poor and oppressed, and embrace our Messianic Jewish brothers as our spiritual fathers in the faith."
