“In conjunction with Promise 6 Sunday, Promise Keepers Introduces Its First Roundtable Discussion on Unity with a Who’s Who of Christian Leaders.”
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. — Founded in 1990 by former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers (PK) is calling men back to courageous and bold servant leadership by sparking a movement that will mobilize millions of men to follow Christ into today’s broken world as changemakers for their families, churches and communities.
Promise Keepers is committed to unifying men in today’s broken world as America endures the burden of division. The sixth promise of a Promise Keeper is to reach beyond any racial and denominational barriers to demonstrate the power of biblical unity.
To honor this promise, Promise Keepers is leading two vital initiatives in October.
The first initiative is a recorded roundtable discussion on unity, moderated by Promise Keepers’ chairman Ken Harrison, and featuring some of America’s foremost religious leaders:
● James Lankford, U.S. senator, and Promise Keepers’ board member.
● AR Bernard, spiritual leader of the Christian Cultural Center in New York City and Promise Keepers’ board member.
● Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) and Promise Keepers’ board member.
● Donald Burgs, Jr., president of African American Fellowship of Southern Baptist Convention of Texas; director of International Relations of NBCA, International; executive board member of National American Fellowship and Promise Keepers’ board member.
● Chad Hennings, founder of Wingmen Ministries, COO/Partner at Rubicon Representation, and Promise Keepers’ board member.
Ken Harrison explained the strategic significance of the roundtable: “We convened and recorded this roundtable so that pastors and churches could review discuss, and share the roundtable
between Oct. 9 to Oct. 24 to motivate them to take tangible action toward unity in their own communities, through an event we’re calling ‘Promise 6 Sunday.’”
The second initiative is calling the men of the nation to get involved in Promise 6 Sunday on Oct. 25.
Promise Keepers is calling upon individual men, churches, small groups, and Bible studies to commit to participating in a unity-building activity, such as:
● Meeting up with members of another church for a potluck in a local park or connecting with another family over dinner.
● Committing to volunteer on a community service project with another church, crossing racial or denominational lines
● Trading pulpits for a single Sunday morning with a pastor whose congregation serves a community different from yours.
● Committing to working alongside another church or plan ways to work together in a local ministry/service project.
