Meant4more Mens' Conference 2013 has been cancelled
After some discussion it has been decided, that the Meant4more conference set for the 23rd November, has been cancelled
Turning ordinary men into committed followers of Christ
We believe that every man has a calling on his life. The call is to be a disciple or follower of Jesus Christ. To be a fully committed member of his team. What that practically means is that:-
• Men are called to surrender and follow Christ,
• Men need to be equipped to live like Christ, and that
• Men need to know that they have been sent to live for Christ.
Why a Mens conference?
Visit a typical Catholic Parish in Ireland, and one will find that on average over two thirds of the congregation are women. Why are there so few men actively participating in the life of the church?
In a major recession, with rising unemployment (300,000 men on live register), the growth of debt, and suicide four times more common among irish men, does the Gospel offer men hope, in the midst of challenging times?
Meant4More is a one day conference which is seeking to bring men together from across Ireland to look afresh at their Christian faith, and in particular to challenge them to respond to the call to follow Christ. The conference is an initial "testing of the waters", to offer a model of bringing men together to celebrate their faith, receive inspiring teaching, and be offered a variety of resources to assist them as this time.
