In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ James Robison Shares His Story of Overcoming Fatherlessness and How He Became a Sought-after Televangelist Who Shares God’s Vision for His Church

February 11, 2021By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison is joined by powerhouse evangelist James Robison on the latest episode of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together they discuss Robison’s story of overcoming fatherlessness, the religious and political divide among Christians, and how the divide can be unified through the people’s embrace of Biblical principles, not political candidates or parties.

Highlights of Robison’s interview in the podcast include:

“I think one of the things that we all agree on is that fatherlessness is one of the things that’s driving today’s dismissal of Biblical principles. You kind of have the ultimate fatherlessness story. You were conceived in rape and you almost shot your dad, at 12 years old, with your new hunting rifle when he came back to exploit your mother. Tell us how you became the guy who’s selling out football stadiums and having 60,000 people come to watch you as a very young man. How do you go from no dad to being so useful in the kingdom of God?”

“I was living with a pastor and his wife when God called me to preach. They certainly made beautiful deposits in my life. I think somehow God had a plan for me from the time I was born. My father, God, really did adopt me and I began to get to know him. As I did, I got to know his heart and I began to share it effectively. If you’ve seen ‘God’s Not Dead’, I had that same effect in two different universities. I was a freshman speaking to the whole student body – it had never happened before. I mean, God just used somebody who fell in love with Jesus and loved the people he died for. I understood the heart of our father. God blesses everything that we do because as imperfect as I might have been and we all are, what I really wanted was his will.”

“How do Christians take leadership, when a lot of us feel like there are two sides? There’s division among us – the Christians who voted for President Joe Biden and the other side who voted for Donald Trump. As we see the current administration opening the doors for abortion, transgenderdism, and homosexuality – how do we, as Christians, behave?”

“We know that if people are defending something that is totally against freedom, against God’s word, and against principles, that we know aren’t only biblically, but historically confirmed, that the violation of these principles brings consequences that are undeniable and so often catastrophic. So, we keep pointing to the importance of this principle. You don’t make fun of somebody who says have same-sex attraction. You don’t make fun of somebody who can’t seem to control their appetite. You don’t make fun of somebody that has a battle with lust. You don’t make fun of people who are weak or defeated. You keep trying to show them, here’s what God says is best. Here’s what God chose as right. You’re never going to help a person overcome an out of control appetite or gluttony by making fun of them. You’ve got to be their best friend because they’re not necessarily evil – something has a grip on them. Everybody is distracted by evil. Nearly everyone is too often defeated by evil, but not everyone is dedicated and sold out to evil. Once you get deceived to the point that you buy the lie and begin to promote the lie, you are then changing God’s truth into a lie. You will redefine gender. You will redefine marriage. You will redefine sex. You will redefine the basic moral practices.”

What does unity in our church and, consequently, our nation look like when Biblical principles are at the forefront and not political candidates or parties?

“I don’t endorse candidates, parties or any particular person’s point of view. I endorse the principles that are confirmed historically and that are 100% in line with biblical truth. The church is the only influence on this earth that can lead all these people who really want the best… If the church will stand up suited up in Jesus, every member will come together in supernatural unity. His glory, his grace, his mercy, his power, and his principles will not fail us when they are in place, including the forgiveness that he freely offers, the restoration he offers, and the direction he offers. He will open our blind eyes and give us vision and clarity to his fruitfulness and blessings beyond measure. Then we will become the shining city on a hill that’s impossible to hide and I’m telling you, that’s the invitation he’s giving us today.”

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on AppleSpotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Since entering public ministry in the 1960s, James Robison has spoken to more than 20 million people in several hundred city-wide evangelistic outreaches and has personally inspired religious, political and social leaders across five decades.

He is the founder and president of LIFE Outreach International, a Christian, faith-based organization committed to expressing God’s love in both word and deed through television ministry, evangelistic outreaches, LIFE Centers, feeding programs, water well drilling, disaster relief and other mission projects. He co-hosts the daily television program LIFE Today with his wife, Betty. He also serves as the founder and publisher of The Stream, a website launched in January 2015 that contains breaking news, commentary, inspiration and cultural analysis for people of faith.

In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ The Real-Life Indiana Jones, Bob Cornuke, Shares His Adventures of Biblical Archaeology and The Upcoming Hollywood Film That Portrays His Life

February 4, 2021By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison is joined by Biblical investigator, international explorer, and bestselling author Bob Cornuke on the latest episode of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together they discuss different interpretations of Biblical word, Cornuke’s daughter’s diagnosis of Lyme’s disease, and the power behind showing an absent father mercy.

Highlights of Cornuke’s interview in the podcast include:

His daughter, Shannon, was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease after a tick bite in Louisiana.
“My daughter, Shannon, spoke at a church where we had to literally carry her up on stage and she said, ‘I wouldn’t give this up for the world’ and the whole place got quiet. She said, ‘I wouldn’t get rid of this disease for the world because people are calling me and writing to me, and now I’m a witness for them.’ There was a girl that was going to commit suicide, but Shannon talked to her and now she is seeking treatment. She’s going through the treatment with the sick and getting healed because there is hope for those that have Lyme disease. There’s a power of prayer. And there’s also the power of wisdom that God has given people to use their talents and in a great way.”
“My daughter said, ‘If I didn’t have this illness, I wouldn’t have this witness.’ We have to look at things through the right lens of God. Sometimes he puts us through these horrible things so that we can be a witness for him in a more powerful way. My daughter had the wisdom to see that. And there’s a difference between wisdom and knowledge because knowledge is in Matthew 11:25, it says, ‘Oh, father, lord of Heaven on Earth, thank you for hiding the truth for those who think themselves wise and clever and for revealing to the childlike.’ Not the childish, childish is nonsensical. Childlike is when we have total faith, like the faith that your father is going to catch you when you jump off the bunk bed. You just jump. That’s a childlike faith. We need to have a childlike faith in God that whatever happens, for example, whoever gets COVID-19, whoever gets this sickness (Lyme’s disease), or any other thing that happens to them, God has a plan and a purpose – that’s wisdom.”

Cornuke forgave his abusive and absent father, as God forgives us for our wrongdoings.

“I was talking to my dad in the hospital when the doctor said he had two to six months to live from his cancer. He turned white as a ghost, and he asked me why I look for Noah’s Ark and why I study the Bible. Growing up, every other word from my father was a swear word. I have scars on my body and my heart from him getting drunk and smacking me around. I said to him, ‘Dad, you’re either on the ark or off the ark. God tells us we’re either in or out, we’re with him or against him.’ He told me, ‘I’ve had such a bad life. I can’t. I can’t even think about asking God to do that with me. I’m so ashamed of my life.’”

“I said, ‘Dad, we’re all we’re all filthy.’ You know, Ken, if you knew what God knew about me, you wouldn’t have me here in front of this microphone and if I knew what God knew about you, I wouldn’t have come here. We’re all sinners. My dad grabbed my hand and he cried out, ‘Jesus, Jesus’ and he begged for forgiveness. I started crying because of all the scars on my body and my heart and I said, ‘I’ve got to forgive this guy, who am I that Jesus died?’ So he accepts Christ and I have this forgiveness moment with him. And my brother comes and says, ‘What’s going on?’ and I said, ‘Dad just accepted Christ.’ My dad’s face changed with all the tears. He had lines from cigarettes and drinking and they all just went away. His whole face changed. He was born again. The Bible says at that moment that you see Christ in your heart, you’re born again, and you’re on the ark. Then that next night I came home and the phone rang. It was my mother and she said ‘They just put a sheet over your father’s face, he’s dead.’ And I had the biggest smile on my face. Not because he was dead, but because he was alive, he was with Christ for all eternity.”

On differing interpretations of Biblical word:

“There are a lot of people that have differing agendas of the Bible. For instance, scholarship rests on three legs. Scholars want to be published. They want to have prestige and they want to be promoted. If you take any one of those legs, their stool will fall over. In Oregon, there are university professors there that if they say there was a flood, as the Bible tells us, they’re not going to get promoted, they’re not going to get published, and they’re not going to get prestige because 99% or 98% of all scholastic people claim to have a non-Christian fundamental viewpoint. Maybe it’s 96% or so, but it’s a high amount that are secular. So their careers are pretty much over if they start espousing that. Even Christian people teaching in Christian universities today are waffling on scripture being true from start to finish, which I believe it is. I believe the Bible is prophetically, contextually, and historically accurate. I think the Bible is God’s revelation of himself – to man God’s the author. Salvation is the truth without any mixture of errors. I believe the Bible is the supreme standard by which we live. It’s the gold standard in history, the sole source of truth. I’ve never found anything in all my archaeological searches that says the Bible counters this narrative. But, we have to remember to take the narrative with the intent of it’s authors. Over history, there have been individuals who let their agendas dictate what the Bible says.”

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Bob Cornuke is a former FBI trained police investigator and SWAT team member. He is best known as a Biblical investigator, international explorer, and bestselling author. He has participated in over seventy international expeditions searching the world for lost locations described in the Bible. Cornuke has appeared on the CBS television special Ancient Secrets of the Bible, NBC’s Dateline, MSNBC, Fox, ABC, History Channel, Good Morning America, CNN, Travel Channel, National Geographic, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit Combines Expert Insights with App-Based Community to Build Strong Marriages in Stressful Times

February 4, 2021By PK ManagerNews, Promise Keepers Event

The completely free two-hour online Marriage Summit is just the beginning. Through the free Promise Keepers App, men can take daily steps to build a better marriage.

COVID-19 has had a profound impact on marriages in America—but pundits can’t agree on what that effect is. As W. Bradford Wilcox noted in “The Good and Bad News about Marriage in the Time of COVID, “The popular takes on marriage in the time of COVID-19 run all over the map. COVID-19 is straining American families. No, maybe it’s making them stronger. Divorce rates in America are soaring, says the Daily Mail, while The New York Post says, no, divorce rates are falling.”

Couples are stressed out, and while some are seeking divorce, others are experiencing, in the words of the American Family Survey, increased appreciation of their spouses and deepened commitment to their marriages. The Promise Keepers (PK) Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit is designed to provide men with the insight, encouragement, and skills they need, whether to build a stronger, more satisfying marriage, or revive a marriage that is stagnating or even in trouble.
The fourth promise of a Promise Keeper is a commitment to build strong marriages and families through love, protection, and biblical values. With this in mind, PK has created a 3-Week Marriage Challenge which uses free the Promise Keepers app to help men take practical daily steps to build the skills of a strong marriage. Any man, anywhere, at any time, can join the challenge through the app.
Ken Harrison, chairman of PK, observed:

“PK is known for assembling amazing communicators to inspire and motivate men to be godly husbands. But just as there is more to becoming a good pilot than watching an inspiring video on an F-22 Raptor, there is more to becoming a good husband than being inspired by an encouraging talk. Anything important takes will and skill. Marriage is no different.

 

“That’s why I’m excited about PK’s new 3-Week Challenge in the free Promise Keepers app. First, men are made for action, and the 3-Week Challenge gives men something to do every day to build not only knowledge, but skill through practice. Second, men are made for community, and through the app, men can encourage each other along the way.”

 

The challenge includes:

  • Daily scriptures, activities and weekly challenges including leaderboards and gamification
  • Additional resources, videos, and practical application from marriage experts
  • Small, virtual groups of fellow men with discussion-based forums
  • 21 Day Prayer Guide

Here’s what men are saying about the 3-Week Marriage Challenge:

  • “Loving Day 1 – Challenge accepted!”
  • “My wife needed me during painful times. I wasn’t there for her. Didn’t realize until today through Rick Burgess’ story how lonely and scared she must have been.”
  • “Day 3 – Wow this is a toe stepping article. So true. I need to be better about this.”
  • “This is so good. Just what I needed.”
  • “Wish I had heard this a long time ago!”
  • On Day 6: “Small things add up to big successes!”

The 3-Week Marriage Challenge was designed as a follow-up to the PK Virtual Marriage Summit, a free, fast-paced two-hour experience designed to provide information and inspiration just for men. It’s available on demand on Facebook and YouTube.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Gary Chapman, counselor and author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, which has been a New York Times bestseller for 10 years running.
  • John Bevere, co-founder of Messenger International and bestselling author. Over 40 million copies of his resources have been given away worldwide.
  • Jimmy Evans, founder and CEO of MarriageToday, a ministry devoted to helping couples thrive in strong and fulfilling marriages and families. He and his wife, Karen, co-host MarriageToday, a nationally syndicated television program.

  • Dr. Gary Rosberg, co-founder of America’s Family Coaches and bestselling author with wife Barb of multiple books on marriage and family with nearly 1 million in print.

In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ Steve Farrar Shares How His Personal Experience with Depression Lead Him to Become a Champion of Men’s Ministry

January 21, 2021By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison, CEO of WaterStone and volunteer chairman of Promise Keepers, is joined by Steve Farrar on the latest episode of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together they discuss the downheartedness of depression, experiencing God’s loving discipline, and how to build spiritual muscle.

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Steve Farrar, known for his candor, his humor, and his commitment, is a fierce advocate for his mission to equip men to be the spiritual leaders of their homes and churches. He earned his doctorate from Dallas Theological Seminary and he has pastored several churches. In 1990 he founded Men’s Leadership Ministries and has been speaking to men around the world ever since.
Farrar has spoken at hundreds of men’s conferences and events, and has authored 20 books for men, including the bestseller, Point Man. For twenty years he has taught a weekly Men’s Bible study in Dallas that is attended by several hundred men and it is continually updated on-line.
Additionally, Farrar serves on Promise Keepers’ Pastoral Advisory Board.

Highlights of Farrar’s interview in the podcast include:

We can find comfort knowing that God will never abandon us in our darkest valleys.

“God puts us in the wilderness where we can’t see any way out and even if everybody’s wilderness looks different, we can all reflect on this feeling. Maybe you’ve lost your reputation, your marriage, or your money, and you feel that you’re stuck with no way to recover. But, Psalm 23:4 tells us, ‘Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.’ As Martyn Lloyd-Jones recalled, every valley and every wilderness has a beginning, middle, and an end. You may not be able to see it at the time, but God is not going to leave you in that position forever.”

“It is important to pray for a teachable heart in these moments because we don’t want to miss what God is trying to teach us in these valleys. When I was experiencing my depression, I would pray to God, ‘Lord, don’t let me miss what you are teaching me. I don’t want to flunk this class. I don’t want to have to go back to summer school three years later. I want to learn, Lord. Would you show me what you have for me?’”

God’s discipline upon us yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

“If you are listening to this podcast and you know you are in the toughest place you’ve ever been, know that the Lord is with you, even if it’s because of your own sin. Our Lord is sovereign and he is shaping you. He will discipline you, as we know from Hebrews 12 – ‘If you’ve never been disciplined by the Lord you’re not a child of God.’ Every son that he loves is disciplined and although being disciplined is not fun, it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness.”

God uses our setbacks to build spiritual muscle and it is our responsibility to take this newfound wisdom to aid others on similar journeys.

“God uses our setbacks to build spiritual muscle. Sometimes we get fatigued and worn down and we don’t know if we can make it. I remember during my depression I wouldn’t ask God to help me get through the day – I would ask him to help me make it to lunch. I would seek him and his guidance to get through the next hours without falling apart. I had never been like this in my life before, but it was exactly what I needed. God put me in his gymnasium and he was working me out.”

“It is important to note I didn’t talk about my experience with depression for a while because I was embarrassed that I went through it… I recommend that for anyone struggling with depression that we love them, disciple them, and help them figure out their gifts. We need to let them know how God made them and encourage them to get on their way.”

Promise Keepers Virtual Marriage Summit Returns Favorite Speakers Gary Rosberg, Crawford Loritts, Samuel Rodriguez, Dan Seaborn and Brad Stine to the Promise Keepers Stage

January 21, 2021By PK ManagerNews

The completely free 2-hour online Marriage Summit on Jan. 23 brings together the most trusted voices with emerging authorities to empower men to build strong marriages in stressful times.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — Promise Keepers (PK) was the greatest men’s movement in modern times. In the 1990’s, seven million men stood up to be faithful to Christ. As Dr. Jack Hayford said at one stadium event, “We’ve come to stand together, hearing the call of God from the eternal Word and scriptures that there would be a man who would stand in the gap.” Those men kneeled, shoulder to shoulder, across racial and denominational barriers, praying to God in confession and brokenness, and crying out to Him for forgiveness and victory. Then they stood up, determined to be men of integrity in their marriages, their families, their churches, and their communities.

During that era, men learned the secrets of leading a thriving, God-honoring home from a host of powerful communicators — secrets that were diametrically opposed to the political correctness of the culture.

In a pandemic-shaped world of 2021, men need these secrets more than ever. Not every marriage is in distress, but every marriage could be better, and it’s the responsibility of men to be the thermostat and not the thermometer.

To empower men to build strong marriages in stressful times, Promise Keepers is launching two timely initiatives in January and February that bring back marriage experts Gary Rosberg, Crawford Loritts, Samuel Rodriguez, Brad Stine, and Dan Seaborn to impact a whole new generation of men.

Initiative 1: Promise Keepers’ First Online Marriage Summit for Men

The PK Marriage Summit, a completely free and fast-paced 2-hour experience, is designed to benefit all men, whether they are married, engaged, single, or divorced. Men can participate in

the Marriage Summit in groups at church, home, base, or dorm or as individuals online on Jan. 23.

Speakers drawn from PK alumni include:

● Dr. Gary Rosberg, co-founder of the international ministry, “America’s Family Coaches,” and bestselling author with wife Barb of multiple books and videos on marriage and family with nearly one million in print.

● Crawford Loritts, pastor of Fellowship Bible Church, board member for CRU, Family Life, and Chick-fil-A Inc, and author of Your Marriage Today…And Tomorrow

● Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), author of From Survive to Thrive and Promise Keepers board member

● Dan Seaborn, founder of Winning At Home, Inc. and leader for the Marriage & Family Division of the American Association of Christian Counselors. His goal is to provide practical, biblical insight into marriage and family issues.

● Brad Stine, known as the man that revolutionized and launched the new era of Christian comedy in America. Brad’s comedy allows him to be a missionary to America, bringing the gospel in unique ways to influence the cultural narrative.

Joining the alumni for the marriage summit will be:

● Dr. Gary Chapman, counselor and author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, which has been a New York Times bestseller for 10 years running.

● John Bevere, co-founder of Messenger International and bestselling author. Over 40 million copies of his resources have been given away worldwide.

● Jimmy Evans, founder and CEO of MarriageToday, a ministry and nationally syndicated television program devoted to helping couples thrive in strong and fulfilling marriages and families.

● Al Robertson, entrepreneur featured with father, Phil, on “Duck Dynasty.” Married for over 30 years, his is the story of rescued love in the face of an impending divorce.

Themes include:

● How to reconnect with your partner

● How to resolve conflict

● Positive communication

● Sex and romance

● Emotional intimacy

● The power of praying for your marriage and spouse

● Sexual integrity

 

Promise Keepers’ Chairman Ken Harrison said,

“Christian men today are yearning to be, as my friend Mark Batterson says, famous in their own homes. As men, we were made to lead — and to serve. When a man steps into God’s high calling, he keeps his promises and those around him get cared for and nurtured. Real men never do anything for our own gain, but we will swim in shark-infested waters for those who are counting on us.”

“The PK Virtual Marriage Summit will inform and inspire men as never before to cherish their wives and families, to be unshakeable in their commitment to making the world around them a better place, and to keep their promises no matter what.”

Initiative 2: The Promise Keepers’ Marriage Challenge

The Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit kicks off a 3-week challenge that will place you side by side virtually with other men as you build up your marriages in a concrete way. Any man, anywhere, at any time, can join the challenge through the Promise Keepers app.

The challenge will be lead on the Promise Keepers’ app and will include:

● Daily scriptures, activities and weekly challenges including leaderboards and gamification

● Video and written content, including additional resources from marriage experts

● Small, virtual groups of fellow men based upon geographic location or stage of marriage

● 21 Day Prayer Guide

Founded in 1990 by Coach Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers is one of the biggest movements of God in the history of the Church. Focused on helping men live with integrity. Promise Keepers touched the lives of seven million men through its national conferences. On October 4, 1997, over a million of these men gathered for Stand in the Gap: A Sacred Assembly of Men in the National Mall in the District of Columbia to take a stand for Christ.

Today, we’re on the move again. More than ever, America needs a revival of godly men. Our nation faces problems that can only be overcome when men of integrity — promise keeping men — fulfill their destinies as godly husbands, fathers, and leaders.

On July 16-17, 2021, 80,000 men are expected to gather from across America and around the world at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys, for its annual stadium event. To register for the event or to learn more, visit promisekeepersevent.com.

Promise Keepers Announces First-Ever Men’s Marriage Summit

January 6, 2021By PK ManagerNews, Promise Keepers Event

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — A recent headline in The Wall Street Journal shone a spotlight on the extreme pressures at work on marriages in the age of COVID-19: “Coronavirus stress has produced a pressure cooker inside homes, hurting even strong partnerships and, experts say, likely breaking others.”

The fourth promise of a Promise Keeper is a commitment to build strong marriages and families through love, protection, and biblical values. Building a strong marriage that will not just survive but thrive during the age of COVID-19 is far from easy, but it is possible. Profound stresses, deep strains, and even fractures can be healed. Relationships can be stronger in the broken places.

Men are the key to forging strong marriages in stressful times. As men take up their biblical responsibilities, lay down their lives for their wives and children, and lead like Jesus, relationships deepen, and pressure pushes couples closer together instead of farther apart.

To empower men to build strong marriages in stressful times, Promise Keepers is launching two timely initiatives in January and February.

Initiative 1: Promise Keepers’ First Online Marriage Summit for Men

The PK Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit, a completely free and fast-paced 2-hour experience, is designed to benefit all men, whether they are married, engaged, single, or divorced. Men can participate in the Marriage Summit in groups at church, home, base, or dorm or as individuals online on January 23.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Gary Chapman, counselor and author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, which has been a New York Times bestseller for 10 years running.
  • John Bevere, co-founder of Messenger International and bestselling author. Over 40 million copies of his resources have been given away worldwide.
  • Jimmy Evans, founder and CEO of MarriageToday, a ministry devoted to helping couples thrive in strong and fulfilling marriages and families. He and his wife, Karen, co-host MarriageToday, a nationally syndicated television program.
  • Al Robertson, entrepreneur featured with father, Phil, on “Duck Dynasty.” Married for over 30 years, his is the story of rescued love in the face of an impending divorce.
  • Dr. Gary Rosberg, co-founder of America’s Family Coaches and bestselling author with wife Barb of multiple books on marriage and family with nearly 1 million in print.
  • Rick Burgess, co-host of “The Rick and Bubba Show,” bestselling author, co-founder with wife Sherri of Burgess Ministries and founder of “The Man Church”
  • Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), author of From Survive to Thrive and Promise Keepers board member
  • Crawford Loritts, pastor of Fellowship Bible Church, board member for CRU, Family Life, and Chick-fil-A Inc, and author of Your Marriage Today…And Tomorrow

  • Brad Stine, Christian stand-up comedian, actor, and writer known as “God’s Comic”
  • Victor Marx, sexual assault survivor and high risk humanitarian with successful missions to Iraq, Syria, North Africa and Southeast Asia helping orphans and widows
  • Dan Seaborn, founder of Winning At Home, Inc. and leader for the Marriage & Family Division of the American Association of Christian Counselors
  • Tim Ross, pastor of Embassy City Church and author of Upset the World, which shows how kindness and friendliness can break down barriers and build relationships.
  • Jonathan Evans, serves with his father, Dr. Tony Evans, both in the local church and the national ministry. He is the chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks.
  • Sen. James Lankford, United States Senator serving Oklahoma, chairman of Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management Subcommittee, and Promise Keepers board member.
  • Ken Harrison, chairman of Promise Keepers, host of the “On the Edge with Ken Harrison” podcast and author of Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says About Being a Man

Themes include:

  • How to reconnect with your partner
  • How to resolve conflict
  • Positive communication
  • Sex and romance
  • Emotional intimacy
  • The power of praying for your marriage and spouse
  • Sexual integrity

Ken Harrison and Pastor Tim Ross explained the significance of Promise Keepers’ Men’s Marriage Summit.

“Our culture bombards us with a vision of masculinity which is passive, soft, silent, and impotent. The result: men today don’t have a clear model of what it means to be better husbands, fathers, friends and men.

“What our world needs, what our wives deserve, and what our Savior demands–are men who are servant kings.

“Men who as kings are proactive, courageous, generous and humble. Men who embrace their identity as leaders with authority and conviction.

“Men who as servants put their wives and children ahead of themselves, who nurture them and make sure everything they do is in their best interests, and who are ready to lay down their lives for them if necessary.

“The Marriage Summit will not only provide insight into becoming a better husband and building a better marriage, it will also provide opportunities for men to take what they’ve learned and put it into action with other motivated men.” – Ken Harrison

 

“Promise Keepers continues to provide world-class content for men to grow in their relationships with God. This year our emphasis on marriage will give men practical ways to strengthen relationships with their wives and children to establish a blessing in their families for generations to come!” – Pastor Tim Ross

Initiative 2: The Promise Keepers’ Marriage Challenge

The Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit kicks off a 3-week challenge that will place you side by side virtually with other men as you build up your marriages in a concrete way. Any man, anywhere, at any time, can join the challenge through the Promise Keepers app.

The challenge will be lead on the Promise Keepers’ app and will include:

  • Daily scriptures, activities and weekly challenges including leaderboards and gamification
  • Video and written content, including additional resources from marriage experts
  • Small, virtual groups of fellow men based upon geographic location or stage of marriage
  • 21 Day Prayer Guide

In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ Mark McClain Reveals the Difference between Generosity and Stewardship

December 24, 2020By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison, CEO of WaterStone and volunteer chairman of Promise Keepers, is joined by Mark McClain on the latest podcast of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together, they talk about the responsibility of stewarding money well, how to be a financially wise giver, and the importance of following God’s calling through a faith-filled mindset.

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Mark McClain is the CEO and Founder of SailPoint (NYSE:SAIL). McClain has over 35 years of experience in technology, with over 20 years as a founder and leader of innovative identity management companies. Under his direction, the company has grown into a publicly recognized leader in its market. McClain directs and drives the overall vision and strategy for SailPoint, which is underpinned by his commitment and passion for building top-performing teams, creating a collaborative and innovative work environment, and focusing continuously on the needs of customers.

Prior to SailPoint, he co-founded Waveset Technologies, which was ultimately acquired by Sun Microsystems. McClain’s career also includes diverse experience in international sales and marketing with Hewlett-Packard and IBM/Tivoli Systems.

Highlights of McClain’s interview in the podcast include:

  • The responsibility of stewarding money well for the Kingdom

“I know a lot of men and women, mostly men, who have incredible worldly success from building very substantial fortunes and successful companies. But their lives are a train wreck. You don’t want to end up as that single guy after his fourth divorce with kids in rehab, living in a 15,000 square foot home by yourself. That is not success, but unfortunately that is where a lot of stories end up because we only see the business side that is projected on Fortune and Forbes. I try to convey to young people — if God’s gift to you is to be a businessman, be a great businessman or woman, but do so in a way that you don’t look back with regret at the train wreck of your personal life.”

“As I learned to adopt my faith for myself, I really began to understand what money is. It’s just a tool like so many other things in our lives that can be used for good or for evil. It happens to be one of the most important tools because, as I read years ago in The Treasure Principle, a book by Randy Alcorn, when Jesus answered questions about how he thought people should live their lives of faith, he often answered with how they should steward their money. ‘How should I live?’ ‘You should not cheat people.’ ‘How should I live?’ ‘You should give carefully.’ I think it’s the ultimate barometer in some ways of our faith. If you don’t deal with money well, there are probably other things wrong with your theology. I have come to believe that money is ultimately an important tool that we are given to steward. We don’t own anything. We’re given an amount of wealth for a period and God calls us to manage it through faith and trust.”

  • Giving wisely

“I try to be diligent, but I’m probably not as diligent as I could be. It sounds odd to say, but there are burdens from having more wealth to manage on God’s behalf than you expected. I want to be as faithful as I can to manage these resources I have been given and if I’m slipshod, I’m not going to be doing what I was called to do, am I? I struggle with the word generosity because it assumes that I’m the owner and I’m being generous with what I have to give. But, it’s not mine. We are managing resources for the one true owner no matter how small or large.”

“I give carefully by surrounding myself with a smart, godly team that can help me to think about how to manage my wealth and help me channel it to the right resources. We should use our giving to advance the Kingdom, spread the gospel, and help the poor directly in the name of Christ. It’s very easy for me to think about channeling the great majority of my giving toward things that are explicitly oriented toward God-ordained causes.”

  • Following God’s calling through a faith-filled mindset

“I feel I was gifted with a stewardship mindset that didn’t only involve money because back then I didn’t have any, but I knew that I had some gifts and talents that I should pursue. I think like a lot of folks that ended up in business as a young, Christian, I wrestled a bit with going full time into ministry. Thankfully, I had some really good counsel not to do that because I would have been a lousy pastor. I think far more of us are called to be out among the world doing whatever God called us to do and doing it with a faith-filled and God-honoring mindset. In my case, I felt I was called to business and I began to steward what was happening as it came.”

“I don’t know if this is my life verse, but I quote it a lot, the phrase in Psalms where David says ‘Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.’ The implication of this is so powerful for me. I feel we all want big searchlights that shine way down the road to tell us where we’re going, but God gives us just enough light to see this step and maybe one more step, a light at our feet. I think that is what it has looked like for me to walk by faith in my business life. I’m just going to take the next step that I see make sense as I pray, talk to godly counselors, and trust my amazing team around me.”

In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ Matthew Mattera Shares His Personal Testimony of Overcoming the Extreme Hardship and Adversity of Losing 6 Family Members to Suicide

December 17, 2020By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison, CEO of WaterStone and volunteer chairman of Promise Keepers, is joined by Matthew Mattera on the latest podcast of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together, they discuss the growing suicide rates in youth, how to recognize the signs, and finding strength in God’s plan after a loved one has taken their life. Due to the graphic nature of this episode, the host is issuing a warning for those who may be triggered by the discussion of suicide.

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Matthew Mattera joined the Navy in 1998, where he met his wife, Erica, and has over 20 years of experience of continuing military service. His powerful and compelling story is a testimony of overcoming hardships and extreme adversity. When Mattera was only six years old, his dad, Michael, committed suicide; he found him moments after the fatal shot was fired. Since that tragic day, Mattera has endured the death of his little brother from an overdose in 2004, followed by the suicides of four other family members over a span of eight years, including the suicide of his own teenage daughter.

Mattera uses his platform, ChartedLife365, to bring awareness to suicide by sharing his story. As a public speaker, Mattera brings to life how God uses our personal testimonies to preserve, promote, and prosper us through every encounter and action drawn onto the map of our
lives.

Highlights of Mattera’s interview in the podcast include:

  • Allowing God to turn our tragedies into good
    “I told my wife, ‘I don’t know how God is going to use this tragedy, but he’s going to use it in a way. We’re going to make that enemy pay because that adversary killed our little girl by renting space in her head and lying to her. This adversary killed my father, my brother, and now my little girl. It’s personal and I’m coming after you.’ That was the moment that I decided I’m going to steward this. The Bible tells us that all things work together for good, of those that love God and are called according to his purpose.”
    “A lot of people say that I can’t carry this burden on my shoulders all the time. I tell them that this isn’t a burden — this is an opportunity to steward something, a golden opportunity to open hearts and minds and to free millions of people while changing their perspective.”

Living a life of regret is not fit for the Kingdom

  • “The Bible tells us that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. You walk out of the spirit, not after the flesh. Condemnation takes on different colors and sizes and one of those is the ‘should have, would have, could have game.’ It is something the enemy seeks to exploit. Hindsight is used for lessons learned so that I take note and don’t do that action again. But, if you’re any man holding to only this plan and looking back, it’s not fit for the Kingdom. Meaning, if you’re constantly looking through the rearview mirror through an attitude of regret, that is when you become vulnerable to staying up to 2 o’clock in the morning, drinking beers, and drowning your sorrows. That’s where arguing with your wife and having resentful conversations about nickel and dime-sized things begin because you’re wrestling with a sense of bitterness and you’re against yourself instead of pausing, and seeking God so that you can do good with your tragedy.”

Recognizing the signs and intervening

  • “My daughter, Elizabeth, started to disappear before my eyes. She started out with little, pink dresses, playing barbies, and as time slowly started to progress she started gravitating and orbiting around themes and messages that glorified and glamorized a dark narrative of death, depression, and destruction. I think for her, like many other children, social media and her smartphone became a fierce multiplier for it. She also started to gravitate toward music that exemplified depression as if it was a good thing and she chose to wear clothes that were all black. Elizabeth was cutting and everything of her outward appearance was an expression of what she was facing in her heart and mind. All the messaging that she was taking in from school, social media, music, and many other outside forces were affecting her because of what she was absorbing and ingesting constantly. At some point, it is our job as parents to step in and say ‘That’s enough’ of the negative messaging they are ingesting in their eyes and ears.”

The components of suicide and holistic healing

  • “I think there’s a biological component, there’s certainly a behavioral, mental health component, but I also think there is a component that we are missing and it’s a spiritual component. I think the faith community and the secular health community have divorced themselves from approaching it. From a holistic standpoint, we are three-part beings — mind, body, and spirit. We’re the only species on earth that wrestle with depression, self-esteem, and self-worth. We are the only ones who self-destruct.”
  • “I’m not a doctor, but I believe there are biological components. The neural network in your mind is the most complex computer in creation. Then you allow it to not just be the primary computer for your body, but it’s also the housing for your spirit as well. I think we miss the mark when we focus only on pharmaceuticals and secular talk therapy. Then, the faith community comes in and we place a generic, ‘Just believe in Jesus and it’s going to go away.’ That’s not holistic nor comprehensive. I think what needs to happen is that the grown-ups in the room, everybody that’s a leader in our communities, whether it be at the schoolhouse, at the courthouse, at city hall, or in our homes, we need to ask ourselves the uncomfortable questions and be humble enough to face some inconvenient truths about the rise in suicide in our youth today.”

NOTE: this interview not only includes Matthew’s powerful story, it also provides valuable insight for parents on contributing factors like the harm caused by social media and the need for parents to take up their authority and intervene in the lives of their children. In addition, we’ve compiled several resources from friends of Promise Keepers that also provide insights and strategies to prevent suicide and heal from loss:
